Wacom tablet invokes right click instead of drawing

Using Wacom tablet on Windows is easy. Just plug in the tablet and draw. It works, but sometimes stylus changes its behavior.

Problems:

  • You want to draw a line, but stylus waits for 1-2 seconds and then it starts drawing.
  • You want to drag item, but mouse pointer does not move on the computer. Computer displays just wheel and then it displays context menu right click.

That’s quite annoying.

This behavior could be disabled. Press Windows Start, search for Pen and Touch application.

windows-pen-and-touch

Change behavior of “Press and hold”. Uncheck option “Enable press and hold for right-clicking”

windows-pen-disable

That’s it 🙂

  • Press Windows Start, type “Pen and”. If nothing appears it might indicate that Wacom drivers were not installed.
    Go to Wacom site, download drivers for your tablet and try again.

    The Pen & Touch is under the Control Panel.

    Thank you so much! Mine has been driving me insane since the last update, I could not figure it out! I was trying to fix it through the dock, I didn’t realize windows had any control settings over it.

    I tried this and it worked ^^

    But then it did it again after a bit
    It only does it in PaintTool Sai
    Must I reinstall Sai?

    Ohhh yay! I encountered this maddening bit after upgrading from WIn 7 to 10, and even re-installed my Wacom drivers to no avail. Your solution was *just* the ticket! Thank you!!
