Preferred Solution: Tablet PC Settings not showing in Control Panel Although Tablet PC Components enabled in Programs & Features

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I have a Tablet drawing monitor, and today the pen stopped working, I fiddled with it for a while, I tried uninstalling the drivers for the Hardware and reinstalling, but then I noticed that the Tablet Settings and Calibration Options you normally see in Control Panel are mysteriously gone. After maybe 2 hrs of googling I've given up,. there's very little on google, and now im considering doing a "Rest This PC." Any help would be appreciated.

I installed (and reinstalled couple of times) Windows Home Premium to my tablet (HP TX1000) and can't find the Tablet PC Settings under Control Panel.

I also tried Windows Update and hoped that it gets to install this setting but after the last update, i still can't find the settings.

Also, I found a forum where they suggested that I look for a setting where I can enable (unhide) the Tablet PC Settings. I don't remember the website but they provided screenshots on how to get there, and so i did get there but the checkbox for Tablet PC Settings is missing in my configuration. So I guess that the settings were not installed on my tablet.

I already checked the different versions of Vista and verified that Vista Home Premium includes Tablet PC Settings, and I'm sure that it does not have any sub types (like Vista Home Premium with Tablet PC, or Vista Home Premium without tablet PC) or am I wrong?

oh I did not get any error and such during the installation of vista home premium (retail), and under device manager, there are no yellow/red icons on the devices aside from the webcam cause i haven't found the driver for it yet.

can you guys help me out?

I have a bamboo fun tablet pc input device. So Fun so usefull Great tool. When I installed vista I didnt have it so i didnt enable the features. When I got It i enabled them via controll panel programs and features. The sticky Notes and Journal work but The tablet pc input panel is not working correctly.
I enable the toolbar but i dont auite know how it works? When I first bought my pc vista was already installed so these features where all enabled. The input panel would show at the left of the screen. Not the whole thing just a little of the window and when you clicked it it would slide out and you could write there. Now when i enable the toolbar nothing shows anywhere. I can click the toolbar a million times and nothing will show.
some thing that may be causing this is Object Desktop? I have Object Desktop and windows blinds running. although when I unload windows blinds restart my pc and have windows default theme applied still nothing. Destop X is part of object desktop and I have gadgets opened. Even if Close the gadgets nothing? I dont think that it had to do with object desktop but I just though that i would include this info for better feedback
I can use windows journal to do the same thing but I would rather use the input panel. and even if I dont use It I want it to be working because i like everything that I pay for to work? Ya know. LOL Anyways I have no clue what to do and I would greatly appreciate help with this. thanks so much

I was just checking my graphics card update in control panel programs and features when I noticed that the total used was 126gb. 125gb was allocated to The Complete National Geographic. Looking in computer the total of the six National Geographic dvd's came to 43.42gb. My C drive is 233gb total of which 75.1gb is used. Any idea's why?

A:Programs and features in control panel

I don't understand what you are asking.

Since you state that your drive is 233GB total with 75.1 GB used, there cannot be 126 GB of software installed.

Have you installed to another drive?

Can you provide a screen shot of Programs and Features?

A:Question about Windows 7 Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features

The Programs and Features listing is shown to you by the Explorer app. Each time that you open/close the Windows (file) Explorer while viewing a folder (or a special view/list like the Programs and Features listing), Explorer tries to write info to the registry about how Explorer was showing you that folder. Windows (file) Explorer tries to write this "how to display a folder" info at other times besides just closing an Explorer window, but I'll not go into all of that.

Microsoft has not solved the problem that happens when these places in the registry get too big. When this happens, you may see the problem that you are experiencing - that of no longer being able to store the layout/view/column width/column selection/... info in the registry.

Below is video that I made showing registry keys being made. (I'm not suggesting that you mess with the registry.) Notice that new keys are made when visiting the folder named Temp. Deleting this Temp folder does not remove those registry keys. If you close Windows (file) Explorer while viewing a compressed folder (a ZIP file), the Explorer app tries to make keys so that it can remember how it last showed you that folder. If you delete or move that ZIP folder to another location, the original registry keys remain. So you can see how this area of the registry can fill up.

edit: I had to make this video again. I hope that I covered all of the original points.

One solution is to remove all of the entries/keys in the areas of ... Read more

Hi guys, hope you can help me with this please because I don?t really know what to do to solve it.

I have a Vaio running Windows 8.1. but coming with Windows 8 preinstalled. I have recently noticed that most of the programs and apps (Adobe, Realtek, Sony folder, Intel, Avast, Java, Bluetooth?) on Programs and Features (Uninstall a Program) have vanished without knowing how. Only Microsoft apps are displayed there for some reason.

First, I run sfc /scannow and found some corrupted files that could not be fixed, so I decided to perform a full recovery (through Vaio Care that makes use of the Recovery partition) that restores the system to factory settings. After recovery, all programs and apps were in Programs and Features as expected. However, after removing either the preinstalled version of MS Office 2013 or the preinstalled games, most programs and apps disappeared again. I run again sfc /scannow, Avast and Malwarebytes and they found no issues at all. I also tried System Restore, but it did not fix anything. Only MS Office 2013, Avast and Malwarebytes are currently installed on the drive, along with Windows automatic updates (including Windows 8.1), and I have not used any ?cleaner? or ?optimizer? tools.

I found a potential cause for this. Apparently, the uninstaller for a program can incorrectly remove registry entries that are used by Windows and the Add/Remove Programs tool (Add/Remove Programs tool displays installed programs incorrectly), but I am not sure whether... Read more

This section of my win 7 professional (x64) computer appears to have files that are out of date, near duplicates and possible useless files (x32 versions and I use x64 OS). For example, the addition of a MS programs do not delete the out of date ones (I have 2010, and other versions of Virtual Studio express!).

A:Can I cleanup Control Panel>programs and features entries

Hello frvaughan2 and welcome to Seven Forums.

Some programs do not delete previous versions. Each new version builds upon a previous version so deleting an older version could cause the program to stop working. Other programs may install a 32-bit and a 64-bit version for backward compatibility purposes. This article explains why Windows 7 comes with a 32-bit and 64-bit version of Internet Explorer. The same concepts would apply to other programs.

Should I Use the 32- or 64-bit Version of Internet Explorer? | PCWorld

If you post a screenshot of your Programs and Features the Forum experts might be better able to advise you if any can be removed.

Found a lot of other posts all over the internet, suggesting malware scans, SFC/Scannow, even chkdsk
But none of these people got their issue resolved, and all ended up reinstalling the OS.
My programs work fine, but they are not listed in Control Panel/ Programs and features
I can even uninstall them by manually browsing to c:\program files\<name of software>\uninst000.exe (or whatever the name of the uninstaller is)
Then after uninstalling the above way, if I reinstall the same software again, the name of the software shows up in my Control Panel/ Programs and features.
I have about 200 programs installed, and Control Panel/ Programs and features lists only 98 now (it was listing even less, but I got a few back after manually uninstalling/ reinstalling, don't have the patience to reinstall all the 200+ programs I have).
Short of performing a factory reset (F11 at startup and then launch HP Complete Recovery, or booting up from the recovery disks I created when I got the computer), is there something that can be done to fix this issue??
The computer I'm using is HP Envy K204TX (touchscreen version), and it's running Windows 8.1 Home (64 bit).

When installing applications they appear to install correctly. An icon is created on the desktop and I can access the program.

In control panel under programs and features... the application is not showing up. I cannot uninstall the programs, because they aren't showing in programs and features to uninstall.

Yes, workarounds can be used to delete the program, but there is something wrong. The programs are not installing properly.

I ran sfc/ scannow as admin no problems indicated
After a couple hours messing with this:

Thought I should add this... When I right click on the installer/setup exe file and select to run as administrator the installer works and does show up in programs and features... Also, I can delete the program as well from programs and features.

I have never had to do this before even though I am admin...(in name mostly) unless I am willing to allow more vulnerability to my system by turning on all the time. Still having to run as admin does seem a bit much for installing programs. The worst part...the installer will run, installs the program, yet leaves off the ability to uninstall or change in the programs and features page of control panel

Hi, all

This is a very frustrating issue that I'm having. I need to go into Nvidia control panel to change some options but I only am able to mess with sterescopic 3d settings...

this is what it looks like

This seems to be a common issue but every other suggestion online does not fix it for me. I only have 1 monitor (people suggested disconnection dual monitors) I have updated my drivers, I replugged my only monitor, I ended the process and tried again, but still nothing.

Can anyone help me?

A:NVIDIA Control Panel only showing stereoscopic 3d settings

As most people online suggest/say, the problem is not a problem at all. Your computer (Almost 100% sure of it) runs on an integrated graphics card. The card itself handles all the problems so there is no need for any extra options or anything of the sort.

Then again, you can try going into device manager and "restart" your drives. (In other words Enable + Re-enable). If that doesn't work you can reinstall the drives, followed by an update.

I just got a Wacom Bamboo tablet for my Windows Vista Inspiron 1525 Laptop.

After research,

I found that there were programs that you could use with your tablet. (Ex: Windows Journal, and that program that recognizes your Handwriting)

I don't have these (or possibly, any) tablet components.

Yes, I searched for it in the Start menu, but nothing came up.

I even went to Control Panel>Programs> Turn Windows Features On or Off, and the Tablet PC folder didn't even show up.

I also saw that there is a tablet feature on Microsoft Word, and I don't see that, either.

Why? How do I get these components?

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum section, but I needed help with my computer tablet functions.

I recently purchased a Wacom tablet, but when I got home, I realized that I could do any inking. The Tablet PC Input Panel would load, and it would show that Windows Journal is installed (since I enabled the Tablet PC Optional Components), but it won't let me write on the Input Panel. Windows Journal will not load either, as it says "Windows Journal cannot start. There was an error initializing inking components." I have tried removing and then installing the Tablet Optional Components, but nothing has gotten better.

If anyone can help me out with this issue, it is highly appreciated =)

Thanks in advance! (And happy holidays =P)

Hi larryjr88. . .

Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - Vista Support!

I would use CCleaner found HERE. Simply download CCleaner, install, Right-click on the CCleaner icon, Select "Run as Administrator", select "Tools" (left side - center), and a list of installed programs should appear.

Typically, CCleaner lists more installed programs than Windows Uninstall Programs does.

Good Luck to you.

I had installed Yahoo messenger a few days ago. I had went into Control Panel shortly after the installation and uninstalled Yahoo Toolbar, which I didn't want. I then decided that I didn't want messenger installed either so went back into Control Panel only to find that it was not listed there. I also noticed that most programs normally found listed in there, such as MSN messenger, NHL07 & Spysweeper just to name a few, are also no longer in Control Panel yet each program works just fine. There are only very few items still remaining in there. And again this happened immediately after uninstalling Yahoo Toolbar. My question is how did this happen, and how can i get Control Panel to list these installed programs again?

If it is still under warranty, call Lenovo. IF you tried to reset to factory defaults, and it is still failing, then you have something else that is going bad. My suspicion would be memory as that is what happened to me although it was on a desktop. Something to check...good luck.

I have upgraded my X201 Tablet to Windows 10 32bit. As far as I can tell, everything is working, including the WACOM drivers and touchscreen.  Wireless has worked perfectly so far, not sure about Bluetooth as I don't use it. My only issue is that the buttons on the display do not work. The power button located on the display does work. I tried installing the Tablet Button Driver II and it will go through the install but the buttons do not work.  This is the download link:http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds027627 The document claims Windows 10 compatability and was Last Updated :08 Jun 2015. On inspection, all the files extracted are dated from 2012 and when trying to manually run the software Windows throws up an error that the software is not supported on this PC.   I removed and reinstalled and noted that the driver information page when running the installer does NOT have Windows 10 listed as a supported system. My assumption is that the driver that they have linked on the download page is NOT the most current driver and is infact the driver for Windows 7 from 2012. Does anyone know how to contact Lenovo to get the correct driver posted to the page, or know of an alternate source to try and find it?

Hi all,

First post here. I've been using, or should I say tweaking win 8 for a few day now and there are a few quirks that I can't seem to wrestle down. I prefer my OS very plain, no effects, animations etc.

The two (or three) features that I'm having problems with right now is

1) Delete confirmation dialog is enabled even though it is unchecked in recycle bin's settings.

2) Aero Peek is enabled even though I have disabled it in Performace Options. If I rightclick at the right far end of the taskbar, peek at desktop is greyed out. If I rightclick the taskbar, and select properties "use peek..." is unchecked.
DisablePreviewWindow in registry is set to 0.
In Group Policy Editor there is no "Desktop" folder.
I ran the bat-file at Peek at Desktop - Turn On or Off in Windows 8, but now I get a tooltip on top of the preview
Since gpedit.msc is not included in this win 8 version I installed it according to this guide: Windows Cannot find Gpedit.msc Windows 7/8/8.1 - Fixed
What am I missing!?

3) Tooltips can't be disabled in this OS either

A:Enabled features despite changed settings and regkeys

Do a bing search for 'God Mode for Windows 8', and create a desktop link. It will allow you to change a multitude of system settings, without having to search for the right menu or do all the right clicking and experimenting to find where to do them.

A couple days ago the Tablet PC Input Panel became unmovable. I can't slide it up and down the left edge when it's minimized and also, once it is expanded, it can't be moved around the screen. Can anyone help with this?

edit: just discovered that it's a problem with my Wacom Bamboo graphics tablet driver, because I can move the panel using the touchpad of the laptop. So, I will try uninstalling and reinstalling the Wacom driver. I won't need any advice now, thanks.

A:Tablet PC Input Panel has become unmovable

Me too, noticed it a few days ago. Has some MS update hit us? can move the panel using a plugged-in keyboard-center stick and with a USB mouse. The Windows Touch Pointer, however, will move any other window but not the Touch Keyboard or Touch Input Panel. When I touch the top bar of the TK or TIP, the pointer seems different and does not "pick up" the TK or TIP. Right-click does nothing. But elsewhere on every other window I try, it works fine.

Have you fixed it, shokan2, and if so, explaining exactly how would be greatly appreciated! I have not discovered anything on Microsoft Support yet. Thanks for sharing 8-)

ps Acer Iconia Tab W501 and I accept all automatic MS updates.

When I try to write anything in the the Tablet PC Input Panel thing, it just doesn't seem to realize I'm trying to write in it. I have a Wacom Graphire4 tablet that I tried to write in it with, but nothing at all shows up. I thought it was a problem with my tablet, but it doesn't show up when I try to use the normal mouse on my laptop either.

The thing is, I would have thought this was just a problem with the Tablet PC Input Panel, except I think it might be something more because even when I try to draw in the handwriting tab in MSN Messenger, nothing shows up there either.

Both of these things used to work, I'm not really sure what happened. It's frustrating and I have no idea how to fix it.

Any help anyone could give would be very much appreciated!

This is a minor problem but irritating nonetheless. My tablet PC Input panel seems to have lost its formatting - so instead of looking like the standard TIP, it looks like a very basic version without colour and with very basic graphics. The keys are smaller too making it harder to select the correct key in keyboard mode. I don't recall when it happened exactly as I don't always use the input panel. It may have been after I installed Avira, but maybe not. I'd be very grateful for any advice on how to fix this.

I am currently having a problem with my Tablet PC input panel, I am running vista business on 32-bit on a HP compaq 2510 laptop, now when I am using the input panel I cant access any of the drop menus ( tools, help and language ) when I try to click on one of the menus it opens for like a split secon then closes.

I have tried searching for solutions but alas have not found any. I couldn't even find a way to reinstall the software.

Any solution would be apreciated as I would hate to restore the system to factory settings.

A:Tablet PC Input Panel problem

I had the exact same problem, solved it by pressing shift + alt to change keyboard language (using my actual keyboard, not the on-screen one). Can't really explain why that worked though. You might not still have the problem, in that case maybe there's someone else out there with the same problem who can try this.
