Hi! How can I turn off the touchscreen on my Acer Aspire S7?

 

I tried to go into control panel/ touch input, but there are no options for me to do it.

 

Thanks!

Good day

 

As far as I recall, I think one could only do this in the Customer Preview Version. I havent tried this on the released version. But you can try as suggested here on this link: http://techmell.com/how-to/tutorial-enable-disable-touchscreen-windows-8/

No other ways? Thanks for your suggestion, but that doesn't work. No such option....

All,

 

I went to the Control Panel, found the "Pen and Touch" section, went there and found nothing about turning off the touch screen.  Normally i want it on but occasionally it woudl be be better to have it off when I'm comparing the position of things on a piece of pater to what's on the screen.

 

Has anybody found a way to turn off the touch screen function?  If so, please post.

 

BTW, you can turn off the touch pad with Fn+T.  That keeps you from bumping it when your typing (very irritating).

 

Otherwise execpt for the poor battery life, I love this thing!

Thanks.  It worked.  The HID device was the 5th one down (not the 2nd) but persistance paid off.

 

Thanks again.

anson_ljh,

 

I didn't have to ID any of the stuff you ask about.  I just went to the Device Manager and chose the 5th "HID-compliant device" down on the list of "Human Interface Devices," disabled it and VOILA! it turned off the touch screen function.  Chosing "disable" from the right click was the key (not "properties").

 

If you look at the Youtube video you suggested, it didn't work exactly the way the guy describle because I'm running Start Menu 8 (I dislike Metro), so I went thru the Control Panel and got there that way.

 

Again, thanks!

PS, I'd post a screen shot but can't figure out how.

It was the 4th HID device for me. I already tried the Control Panel suggestion of "Pen and...". Didn't work. Funny thing is that after diabling, "Pen and..." no longer show up in Control Panel.
