Windows 10: Touchscreen disabled for some period of time after stylus use.

  1.    01 Jul 2016 #1

    Touchscreen disabled for some period of time after stylus use.

    I own a thinkpad yoga 14 with the active pen digitizer. One really annoying thing that seems to have popped up when I switched to 10 makes it nearly impossible to use the pen.

    Essentially, the pen itself works, however attempts to use the touchscreen simply do not work for some undefined amount of time. When in laptop mode the time is approximately half a second.

    When in tablet mode it ranges from 5 to 15 seconds.

    Makes it really hard to use one note properly since you can't just use the pen.

    Any ideas as to why this may be happening?

    IDK if we're allowed to bump threads but... bump?

    You can do a System Restore to a time before this happened.
    Go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc, right click the devmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager, scroll down to Human Interface Devices Is there a yellow flag or Red X next to HID-compliant touch screen. If a red x, it is disabled, right click and Enable it.
