How to Get Rid of the Panning Hand

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.
