    I was going through my files and accidently clicked on ink because I was curious. Now I have an ink pane on my system preference. Can you please tell me how to remove it. Please also check out my video to see what I am talking about;

    Deleting it from the pane would not completely delete it? right?

    It'll delete the preference pane from System Preferences

    Solution

    You can remove the Ink item by opening it, and turning handwriting recognition on, then off again. Then next time you open your system preferences, it will be gone. If you have a pen icon in your top toolbar, you can remove it also by command-dragging it off the toolbar.

    This did not work for me. I've looked for this darned Preference in both /Library/PreferencePane and ~/Library/preferencePane. doesn't exits. Couldn't find it in the preferences folders either.

    OK, I found it in the /Systems/PreferencePane folder. should have figured that out, because it was listed in the Hardware section in system preferences.
