How to turn off touch RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed/upgraded my samsung tablet from build, from the developer preview to the consumer preview.

    Previously, in "Desktop" mode, I could go to the Control Panel and disable touch.  This was highly effective when using the Wacom pen with "legacy" drawing apps (as I want to draw with my pen, not the palm of my hand, i.e. touch).

    With the new Consumer Preview, they've changed the settings so that it is "easier" for the consumer.  Now I can't figure out how to reproduce prior functionality.  Is there anyway to disable touch and use the pen as input only?

    I checked the settings section from the Metro and Control Panel (Pen and Touch).  Is there a registry hack? WMI? PowerShell script? anything?
