Can I turn off the three dots at the top of my iPad screen?

Unfortunately, no.

In the upgrade to iPadOS 15, Apple completely redesigned Multitasking, the feature which enables the use of two or more apps, side-by-side.

There is now a ... on the top of every app window and unfortunately, Apple has not yet provided a way to disable it.

To avoid accidentally tapping the three dots, for now, we recommend shifting the Annotation toolbar away from the top position, by tapping and holding the double line icon.

Then drag and place it on the Left or Right of the screen.
