Turning off pen feedback cursor in Windows 7

A few days ago I was trying to find out how to turn off the "splash" cursor ring you get when you use a Wacom pen in Windows 7. Well, I found out, so you don't have to.

1. Open Local Group Policy Editor. Press windows key+R and type gpedit.msc at the command prompt.

2. Go to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components - Tablet PC > Cursor.

3. Enable "turn off pen feedback" setting.

4. For goodness' sake, be careful.

You can thank me buy buying something from my shop! Or just by typing "thank you".

Thank you!
I could return the favour by telling you how to check the size of your document in the new MS Word, but I'm not going to spoil the fun of hunting for this rarely* used function. Hint: it's buried deep in a random menu group.
*rarely used by a vast majority of customers, ie folks who use Word to write "hi Mom" and print it out.
