HELP! Disable Touch Screen on Envy Touchsmart Ultrabook 4

Hi, i'm having trouble trying to disable the touch functionality of the screen of Envy Touchsmart Ultrabook 4 in Windows 8... I've been looking for an answer on how to do this but i haven't find anything. I tried the method of control panel>hardware and sound>pen and touch and then disabling the option "use your finger as an input device" but this option is not there for me! If someone knows how to do this i'd be very thankful. :smileyhappy:

Re: HELP! Disable Touch Screen on Envy Touchsmart Ultrabook 4

Hi,

 

I have a different type of TouchSmart, but this may work for you:

 

  1. Press the Windows logo key + X.
  2. Select Device Manager from the list.
  3. Click the little arrow next to Human Interface Devices to expand the list.
  4. Click the touch screen driver (in my case, NextWindow Voltron Touch Screen).
  5. Right-click, and select Disable from the list.
  6. Click Yes on the dialog box that asks if you are sure you want to disable the touch screen driver.

 

When you want your touch screen to work again, follow the process above, EXCEPT when right-clicking the touch screen driver, select Enable.

Clicking the white KUDOS THUMBS UP ThumbsUp.jpg on the left is a way to say thanks!

Does anyone know how to disable the touchpad on these machines?  I have a Envy TouchSmart 17-j130us.
