    Dual Touchscreens Possible?

    I have Win 8 Release Preview (64-bit) installed in its own partition with dual-boot to Win 7. I also have two Dell touchscreens installed but I can only use one for finger gestures. Even Win 7 lets me use touch on both monitors! Is there a way to use touch on both monitors with Win 8? TIA!

    Try to see if Dell has a beta driver for the touchscreens for Windows 8, that might be able to help.

    Doubtful Coke Robot. I talked to Dell yesterday (Tech Support) and THEY haven't even got a copy of Windows 8 WHAT-SO-EVER in their shop. I gave the rep a link to download Win8 RP, and our forums URL here, so that tech agent can see the tips, and solutions that WE came up with so-far. Told that rep to also download Brink's tips & tricks so they can add/create a Win8 notation in their Tech Support database. I was there looking for native drivers, and a way to put back the support partition that Windows 8 erased. I was S.O.L.

    I highly doubt that the Dell Hell support people are even aware of Windows 8. Even still, I wouldn't expect them support 8 as it's not even a retail product that has support yet.
