I have a HP TouchSmart 610. Since upgrading to Windows 10 I cannot turn off the touchscreen. I have disabled it through Device Manager and turned off tablet mode. In Windows 8 I could turn it off and it would stay off no matter how many times I restarted the computer. Sounds silly but even a bug landing on the screen activates stuff. Could someone please advise a solution? A little frustrated. Thanks.

Hello, @Traceyl - Greetings!
Thanks for joining HP Forums. I would like to help 🙂
Try the steps below to disable the touch screen in Windows 10.
- Go to the device manager.
- Click the little arrow next to “Human Interface Devices” to expand the list.
- Click the touch screen driver (in my case, NextWindow Voltron Touch Screen).
- Right-click, and select “Disable” from the list.
- Click “Yes” on the dialog box that asks if you are sure you want to disable the touch screen driver.
Let me know if that helps. Thank you!

Your directions didn't work ("enable" wasn't activated). None of the other internet suggestions worked either. I can not abide by this; it drives me nutty! Any other suggestions? If my laptop wasn't relatively new, I'd just get a new one and make sure the touch pad was permanently turned off before I walk out the door!

Oh, wait another minute - I don't want to turn off the touch screen (although I did it accidentally) while trying to disable my mouse touchpad - I want to disable the pad, not the screen! Any help with that please??
