Windows Extended Desktop - Configuring Touch Control to the Panel in Extended Desktop
print icon

You may have your computer configured for Extended Desktop connected to the SimplicityTouch Interactive Flat Panel and would like to make the panel the extended display with touch enabled. If so then follow these instructions.


These instructions are meant to be used in Windows 10, however, the configuration is very similar for Windows 7 and Windows 8.


Configuring the SimplicityTouch as an extended display does not allow one person to control the SimplicityTouch display and one person to control the laptop/main display simultaneously. Only one may be controlled at a time.


Configuring Touch in Extended desktop

  1. Type Control Panel in the search box, and open the Control Panel in Windows.

  2. Click "Tablet PC Settings".

  3. In the Tablet PC Settings window, underneath the "Display" tab, click the "Setup..." button.

  4. Choose "Touch Input".

  5. If the Laptop or Main Display is not a touchscreen, then press the "Enter" key twice. If the Laptop or Main Display is a touchscreen, then tap the screen once and press "Enter".
  6. You will now be prompted to do the same thing on the SimplicityTouch display. Tap the SimplicityTouch display once and press the "Enter" key.
  7. The SimplicityTouch's touch output should now control its own display instead of controlling the main display. Attempt this process a few times if it does not initially work.
  8. If windows will not recognize the displays properly, then we suggest updating Windows and the display driver the latest versions available.
