Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello
I would like to reactivate the touch screen of my machine that I had disconnected in the device manager under W7. I am currently using W10 which has upgraded all the drivers (generic for the most part) and the device manager mentions HID compatible controllers, screens and pens. These are well activated. But no effect even after uninstalling and installing them. What do you think about it ?
Thank you for your insights.

@MIKE_44 -- is there a two-key combination, such as "hold-down the FN key, and tap the F10 key", to enable/disable the touch-screen?

 

HP Recommended

Yes indeed there is the key combination type Fn F9 which should do the job under W7 but since W10 the keyboard drivers have been migrated to the generic Microsoft versions and the specific Fn are inactive (for example the screen brightness ...)

Have you searched the web-site of the manufacturer of the keyboard for a specific device-driver to supersede the "generic" device-driver? 

 

I wonder if the "generic" device-drivers in Windows 11 will include the support for those functions?
