How to disable Touch Screen.....

Hi,

 

I have a TouchSmart 600-1070a Desktop PC. Can someone please tell me how to disable the Touch Screen feature as every time a small bug hits the screen it disrupts whatever application I'm using......especially when a bug flies into an Enter or Submit on-screen button.....

 

Thanks

Use the link above and go to device manager in windows and pls list all the contents under the section HID (Human Interface Devices). One of those drivers there can be disabled to prevent touch from working.

Always provide product number (P/N) of PC or Monitor. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07555&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en

Re: How to disable Touch Screen.....

I found an option that seems to have turned off the "touch" on my touchsmart screen:

 

  1. Open Control Panel
  2. Select "Pen and Touch"
  3. Select the "Touch" tab
  4. Uncheck the checkbox that says "Use your finger as an input device"

This seems to have disabled all touch sensitivity on my screen without having to go in and change anything in with the drivers. This way I can easily turn it back on if I want to use it again.

This is so old, I hope you got it to disable, The Pen and Touch settings will did not disable mine, I didn't have that option, The "NextWindow 1950 Touch Screen" is what  you have to right click on and left click disable to disable it. It usually works right away. I just disabled mine. Smiley Happy

Hi 1topgun1. Are you looking to disable the touch capabilities of your TouchSmart?

 

If so you can take a look at this document for instructions to prevent your screen from responding to touch (look at Figure 1: HP Touch Screen Configuration window  under Step 5 of the first section) and select “Disable”)

http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01533440

 

Let me know if this works.
