    Touch screen being disabled, since Windows 8


    My touch screen randomly won't work, only to find that it's disabled in Device Manager. "USB Input Device" is what it shows up as. I believe it's a software I have installed that may be interfering. Help would be very much appreciated!

    :)

  3. Why is the action center in windows 10 keep opening.

    I found that my problem was due to my Touch Screen being faulty. Once I was able to disable the Touch Screen the problem went away.

    Click on the search button and type Control. This will give you the desktop (classic) version of Control Panel. Click to open it. Click View as Large icons to see all controls rather than groups. Click on Programs and Features. Let it finish loading and then examine the list carefully. You should be able to identify any utility relative to the touch screen. Uninstall it and see if your screen works now.

    Your problem probably arises since there is a conflict between the utility trying to enable the touch feature and Windows own method for that.

    The problem occurs far less, but still exists. There really weren't any programs related to the touch screen so it might have been an update that fixed this up. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

    Don't have any other suggestions. Probably Windows Update replaced the problematic driver with a newer working driver. Good news!
