    Touch Screen


    I am going to have a desk top built with Windows 8 on it. My question is will Windows 8 allow me to use touch screen with a touch screen monitor, or does the computer have to have another program on it to use the touch screen?

    If your monitor supports touch, then touch will work. You must have long arms though.

    any program in Windows will allow you to use touch. even the old desktop programs. heck, Plants versus Zombies is one of the best uses of a touchscreen even though it was designed way before touch screens were popular. much better than clicking a zillion times. I swear, PvZ must've destroyed a lot of mice.
