    How to Enable or Disable Touch Screen in Windows 10


    A touchscreen, or touch screen, is an input device that enables you to interact directly with what is displayed, rather than using a mouse, touchpad, or other such devices (other than a stylus, which is optional for most modern touchscreens).

    If your device has a touch screen, you may want to disable and enable it as needed.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the touch screen in Windows 10.

    *note You must be signed in as an administrator to enable or disable the touch screen in Device Manager.

    Enable/Disable Touch Screen Windows 10 Laptop

    There is no Pen and Touch option on my Lenovo 3-1480. I can double boot and it comes back. It is never on after sleep or shutdown. It is more of a problem since installation of Office 365.
