Screen Shoot: Device Manager – Windows 8

At some point you may want to disable the touch screen on your Windows 8 laptop/desktop to strictly use the conventional mouse and keyboard. Whenever that need come, Windows 8 has no built-in option to turn off the touch screen; however, there is a quick turnaround.

Simply follow these steps to disable your windows 8 touch screen feature:

  1. First, go to the device the manager by opening the “Charm Menu” and search for “Device Manager.”
  2. Once in the Device Manager, expand “Tab” and find “Human Interface Devices”.
  3. Expand the “Human Interface Devices” to display several “HID-compliant device” listings.
  4. Now Select the “HID-Compliant Touch Screen” and “Right-Click” then Select “Disable”. When asked if you want to disable the device, select “Yes.” The touch screen on your Windows 8 device should now be disabled.

Note: Depending on your device, some PCs will call it an HID-Compliant Touch Screen, while others may vary—in the event you don’t have a touch screen option listed, you may have to try each HID Compliant until one works.

Follow the same steps to enable the Touch Screen again selecting “enable” instead.
