Turn off Touch Panning

Turn off Panning Turns off touch panning which allows users pan inside windows by touch. On a compatible PC with a touch digitizer by default users are able to scroll or pan inside a scrolling area by dragging up or down directly on the scrolling content. If you enable this setting the user will not be able to pan windows by touch. If you disable this setting the user can pan windows by touch. If you do not configure this setting Touch Panning is on by default. Note: Changes to this setting will not take effect until the user logs off.
