I use the touch screen of Windows 8, and after that I use it, my mouse pointer disappears

My problem is similar to other positions, but not exact.

When I use the touch screen of my computer in windows 8, the mouse disappears and does not come up until I restart the computer.  After the restart, if I use the touch screen, even once, the needle does not again.


Hi Tony,.

This problem is caused due to conflicts of device, you will not be able to use the touch cursor when a mouse is connected. You will be able to tap on the touch keyboard, but when you scroll or drag the mouse cursor disappears. I suggest you to disable one of the device and check if it helps.

To disable the touch screen, refer to the following steps:

a. click the Start button and click Control Panel.

b. access the material and audio.

c. click Pen and Touch.

d. click on the contact tab.

(e) uncheck the box use the finder as input, this disables touch and stylus.

Otherwise, you will need to disconnect the mouse.

Please reply with the status of the issue so that we can better help you.

  • Is there a Windows API that I can use to turn off the touch screen of WIndows 8?

    It makes sense for a Tablet have a touchscreen. A valve system, I would like to live without a touchscreen.

    I would like to disable the touchscreen disabled if a machine is not in tablet mode. However, I can't find any API to do it on Windows 8. in Windows Mobile, there are APIs such as DisableTouch and EnableTouch. I wish I had such somethings on Windows 8 Pro. When the touch screen is disabled, the OS will never be aware of activity on the touch screen.

    Is anyway to do this?

    Thank you



    It seems that you want to disable the touch screen on a Tablet using the C++ programming language. I suggest that you post your question in the MSDN forums. The community on these forums is more experienced to answer questions related to the programming language.

    This solution does not work for me because I don't have the option "Use your finger as input device."

    Go to the sounds and then hardware and Control Panel.

    Select the Pen and Touch and go to the contact tab.

    At the top is "Use your finger as input device."  Uncheck the box.

    Click apply and then click OK.

    Is there another solution?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, I have a HP TouchSmart 320-1030, so it can work on your TouchSmart:

    1. Press Windows + X logo.
    2. Select Device Manager from the list.
    3. Click on the small arrow next to Interface devices to expand the list.
    4. Click the touchscreen driver (in my case, Voltron NextWindow touch screen).
    5. Right click and select disable from the list.
    6. Click Yes in the dialog box that asks you if you are sure you want to disable the touch screen driver.

    When you want your touchscreen to work again, follow the above procedure, EXCEPT when right-clicking on the touch screen driver, select enable.

    When I move my finger on the touch screen on my new T440s Windows 8 machine, a thin dark line about an inch long follows my finger - as much as I move it. Someone at - it ideas?

    Thanks a lot for the answers. Yes, it looks like the tail after the finger in the videos. But I followed the advice sub - turn off 'Visual Show' in the box of Pen and Touch, and it worked. No more of the tail. Great fix and easy. I arrived at the right screen by writing just Pen and Touch in the search function of Windows 8.

    Thanks again.

  • Firefox works with the touch screen technology windows 8?

    Plan to buy all-in-one touch screen pc and want to know if Firefox browser works well with this technology.

    Yes it is on the right. as the article linked in my response earlier said that the touch interface is currently available in early development builds, which are mainly for the developers and users very advanced and not recommended for daily use. Firefox 26 will come on the aurora in mid channel one to beat late October - these build would give you the opportunity to test and to discover the new format in a more stable form (provided that the calendar holds).

  • How to activate the touch screen HP Pavilion Touch Smart (10-e010nr)

    The list of features on the HP website says that this laptop has a touchscreen, but the first time that I booted up (new with box), it doesn't seem to work.  I have run Windows Update and installed all security and optional updates.  I also installed all video updates from the HP support page.  What can I do else?  It has touch screen or not?  It had pre-installed Windows 8.1.  Thank you!

    Last night I did the reset complete back to factory settings... erase all files and reinstall Windows 8.1.  It took several hours.  It did not touch screen feature.  I also tried pressing F2 at startup and running the diagnostics on all of the touch screen.  He failed and gave me an error code.  As the computer is still under warranty (I don't have possession for another week yet), I talked to HP technical support on live chat and gave him the error code.  He said he must be sent to HP for service.  Since I live on a military base that, he told me that I must call their number of military sales to the United States.  When I called them, they were closed.  I won't and I'll try to return it to the base exchange where I bought it.  Thanks for trying to help me solve this problem.  I guess that's just DOA.
