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