If Windows Ink Workspace isn't a feature you need, this guide will walk you through the steps to disable the experience on your Windows 10 PC.

Windows Ink is a new pen experience that Microsoft is introducing with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. At the core of Windows Ink, there is the same pen support that the operating system has included for years, but there are a number of new improvements.
