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 right is a way to say thanks!

 Great solution--thanks! I have an HP ENVY TouchSmart 17-j185nr Notebook with Windows 8.1. Here is what I did to shut off the onscreen keyboard:

 

  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.
  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.

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

I've looked thru the Device Manager and can't find a Touchscreen device. I have the HP Envy w/touchscreen. There's a dimple or something in upper middle of screen that keeps repositioning the mouse to it (and selecting any feature on any open window in that spot. What else might the device be called? This was a really nice computer, but now its just an expensive piece of junk!!!!

I went to "personalize" and typed in the search, "Touch Screen Driver." Under there I was able to turn off the right click.
