I got my EP121 yesterday, and just tried this method. It Crashes, and does not disable touch
If you look in the controlpanel>Pen and Touch>Touch
You can find the setting "Use your finger as an input device" and uncheck that option to disable touch. I usually just leave that window open and uncheck it when I stop using onenote or something.
Did you run it as admin? Actually, I've test it on a HP TX1000. So it might not work on the EP121.
yep. ran as admin. program was immediately flagged as not responding.
Ok well I tried...
When I'll get my EP121, I will retry.
I'm also running the TM2 Control Application with the -9 added to the shortcut, works great! I put a shortcut in my taskbar, and just tap it whenever I'd like no touch (or when l want it back). To be honest, I don't have to use it much, the slate picks up the pen nicely and turns off touch automatically. Since this was my first slate, it was hard getting used to being able to rest my hand on the computer. But now that I've finally caved, my pen stays close enough to not cause problems.
I've created my own shortcuts to disable/enable touch. It uses Microsoft devcon to do it.
Unfortunately I can't make the UAC prompt go away, nor can I seem to easily combine it into one shortcut using a .bat file.
Maybe someone else can have a go! I'd look at it more, but can't be bothered really
Anyway, maybe it will be useful for someone!
Advantage of this solution is that this is all it does, so no bloatware or anything like that!
Nice one, atleast i dont need to find the device manager every time
I use the touch control add on that's on the forums somewhere
Here's a link from dropbox but you can find it elsewhere if you don't trust me
You just press the window switcher button on the front of the tablet to disable touch. It's a little glitchy but very simple.
You lose the window switching capability but not ctrlaltdelete.
