    combine small touchscreen monitor with larger viewing non-touchmonitor


    Is it possible to combine/setup a 15-inch multi-touch monitor with a 21-inch non-touch (main) monitor, so that main viewing can be done on 21-inch non-touch, but all/most the finger control done on the 15-inch touchscreen?

    Reason: after getting golfers elbow, I am now starting to have trouble with my right shoulder. So I am looking to ease the pressure on my right side by using touch instead of mouse.

    Or is there a better solution (graphic tablet, or)?

    :)

    Touchscreen monitor

    Hi, I'm looking into buying a touchscreen monitor for use with a Dell Inspiron 660 desktop pc rnning Windows 8 in order to fully utilise the touchscreen facilities of Windows 8.
    I'm preliminary looking at the Iiyama T2250MTS or T2452MTS touchscreen monitors. Anyone had experience of these, do they fully work under Windows 8?
    Any other suggestions of monitors in the £200-£350 range?
    Thanks

    Touchscreen as second monitor


    I have a laptop that has a touchscreen, and uses HDMI for an external monitor, plus a mini displayport for another external monitor (neither external monitor is a touchscreen). I use the external monitors for my main work, so have the primary display on one of these, and not the laptop screen. I also, in Win8.1, set the touch and tablet settings so that the touchscreen was identified as the laptop screen. Before the tablet setting was changed then using the laptop touchscreen effected the external monitor setup as the primary screen. Once the tablet setting was changed then it all worked brilliantly, with some small issues with screen resolution (3840x2160 laptop screen vs 1920x1080 external monitors).

    Now I have updated to Win10, then I think most of the small screen resolution issues have gone (some new ones seem to have appeared, but I'm sure they will iron out over the next few months), but it has reverted to the touchscreen only being for the primary display. So I touch the laptop screen, and it effects the external monitor set as primary display.

    Annoyingly I can't find the tablet setting that allowed you to state which display should be effected by the touchscreen. As Win10 is very new then I can't find documentation on how to change this.

    Does anyone know how to change these settings in Windows 10?

    Cheers

    combine small touchscreen monitor with larger viewing non-touchmonitor

    Screen size is larger than monitor

    Hello,

    Got a new monitor and the text is extremely small for me. ACER manufacturer recommends that settings for the size of text and apps be left at 100%, plus the Resolution at 1920 x 1080.

    Since my eyesight is not that good, I opted to increase the size of text just to 125% and then asked to reboot computer. After the restart, the text had considerably gotten better, but the desktop icons got larger, half of the size of the icons were off the
    screen on left-hand side. Lastly, the Start Menu button disappeared. Tried to get back the screen to normal, but still is larger than the monitor, also the Start Menu button disappeared. Checked for a magnifier on the screen and closed it.

    (I know I can get settings through the action center, but can not get other tiles like photos, games, etc.)

    Checked for drivers and they are all up-to-date.

    Again, these are the issues:

    1) Screen larger than monitor. Can not see anything on the left-hand side, having to snap each time to reduce their size has become a nuisance. Have tried different steps to reduce screen size to fit the monitor but it just is not working.

    2) Lost “Start Menu Button”, because screen is too large.

    3) Text is gone back to 100% and it's too small.

    4) Desktop icons on task bar are also extremely small.

    I would appreciate someone's help.

    Thank you.

    Ed
