At some point you may want to disable the touch screen to strictly use your Windows 8 tablet/laptop as a PC with the classic mouse and keyboard combo.

There's no built-in option to turn off the touch screen, but Into Windows has a quick workaround.

Here are the steps:

  1. First, go to the device the manager by opening the "Charm Menu" and search for "Device Manager." If you don't see it, change the search filter to "Settings."
  2. Once in the Device Manager, expand "Tab." Then find "Human Interface Devices" and expand it.
  3. You should see several "HID-compliant device" listings. Some PCs will call it an HID-Compliant Touch Screen, but yours may vary—if you don't have a touch screen option, you may have to try each HID Compliant ____ until one works. When asked if you want to disable the device, select "yes." That's it! The touch screen on your Windows 8 device should be disabled.

To enable it again, just follow the same steps, but select "enable" instead. One important thing to remember: Once the touch is disabled, you'll need a keyboard and mouse paired with the device to undo it
