How to turn off touchscreen in Windows 10

HP TouchSmart 610
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

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.

How to turn off touchscreen in Windows 10

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!

Cheers 🙂

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??
