Fixing Wacom Tablet in Windows 11

Windows 11 like all microsoft products including lockdowns and vaccines is a nightmare. And photoshop is no better. All of them are memory hogs and try to force you to do things you don’t want to do and in ways you don’t want to do them. To get the new version of photoshop to work correctly with a wacom pen and windows 11 takes a real effort. First go into the wacom tablet software and for every program besides photoshop disable windows ink. Good riddance! This won’t work for photoshop however because you need pressure sensitivity. So leave it on for that program specifically.

Now if you are still using Photoshop 2022 in the directory C:\Users\[your-windows-username]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2022\Adobe Photoshop 2022 Settings add a text file named “PSUserConfig.txt” and insert these two lines of text into the file…

# Use WinTab
UseSystemStylus 0

Or use the directory… C:\Users\[your-windows-username]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2023\Adobe Photoshop 2023 Settings

if you are using the latest Photoshop which is 2023.

Save the file and restart photoshop. Smash the technocracy. Their products all suck. They are not safe and they are not effective.
