HOW TO ACTIVATE TOUCH SCREEN ON HP ENVY X360

HP Envy X360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

How do I turn on the touchscreen option on my laptop? The other forums that describe to press the windows button + X does not work. Also under device manager the settings button is not highlighted therefore I cannot change settings. I would like to turn on the touch screen on my computer.

 

Thanks

HOW TO ACTIVATE TOUCH SCREEN ON HP ENVY X360

Hi @Madi47

 

Welcome to the HP Forums!

 

I appreciate you taking the time to share your concern and thank you for using this forum, it is a great place to find answers.

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to know how to enable touchscreen on your computer.

 

I’d love to help!

 

Follow the below steps to enable/disable touchscreen on your computer.

 

To enable the touch screen in Windows 10, press Windows+X on your keyboard to access the Power User menu, then select “Device Manager”.

01_selecting_device_manager

 

 

In the Device Manager, click on the right arrow to the left of Human Interface Devices to expand the list.

 

02_expand_human_interface_devices_orig

 

Simply right-click on the “HID-compliant touch screen” item under Human Interface Devices in the Device Manager and select “Enable” from the popup menu.

 

06_enabling_touch_screen

 

There is also a special tablet mode that makes use of the touch screen to interact with Windows. The Windows desktop is disabled when Tablet Mode is enabled and the Start screen is used exclusively.

 

Let me know how it works and you have a good day ahead.

 

To simply say thanks, please click the "Thumbs Up" button to give me a Kudos to appreciate my efforts to help. If this helps, please mark this as “Accepted Solution” as it will help several others with the same issue to get it resolved without hassles. Take care now and have a splendid week ahead.

 

Take care!
