How to Get Rid of the Panning Hand

By Suvro Banerji

A panning hand is a tool within the Internet Explorer Web browser on a tablet PC. You can use the panning hand tool to adjust the position of a page in your browser so you can view any part of the page. When you move a page position with the panning hand, it feels like moving a piece of paper on your desk or workspace. This applies to tablet PCs that have Windows Internet Explorer 7 and Windows Internet Explorer 8.

Step 1

Click the "Start" button on your tablet PC.

Step 2

Click "Internet Explorer" from the Start menu.

Step 3

Click the "Panning Hand" button to turn it off. You can locate this button below the address bar on your Internet Explorer Web browser.
