There are many options and features on these devices to suit the needs of various users, including multiple user interfaces. However, this aspect also makes it difficult and confusing for users sometimes to enable or disable a particular feature. It might also pose a challenge to the users to navigate effectively across the device and explore the plethora of options available to perform various functions and complete different tasks.

The instructions to turn off the Touch Screen are given stepwise below:

- Right-click on the touch screen item of the HID branch, and select the Disable device option to complete the action.
- When you see the dialogue box popping up on your screen, click on the “Yes” option.
After you complete all these steps in order, the touch screen will be disabled, and the device will no longer respond to touch gestures.
