I have a Wacom Bamboo Tablet with pen, and every time I touch the pen down, the brush selection tool pops up instead of just drawing. I don't recall having this issue in Windows 7, but I was also using CS5 back then too.

How do I disable the brush selection tool on tap? I can't seem to find any options in PSE 11 or in the Wacom Drivers.

It sounds as if the Bamboo preferences are set incorrectly. You first might want to update the drivers by downloading the latest version from Then double check the preferences to ensure you don't have the Enter or Return key set to the stylus.
