    Problem with touch screen with recently reinstalled W.8.1


    I recently re-installed Windows 8.1, dual booted with W.10. I have a touch screen & something is happening that never happened before the re-installation. When I touch an opened app the screen magnifies. I don't have 'Magnifier' activated. I have to double tap the screen to reduce the size to normal. Any suggestion welcomed! Thanks!

    I have faced the similar situation a month ago even the 10 finger touch was not working as it used to be and also the touch gesture features were not working.
    After surfing around I found one solution, it was about to update Graphic Driver from HP Support Assistance software as I have HP laptop so so you should try updating Graphic driver using your particular brand Assistance software

    Thanks for that advice MirnaDorris. I went to Lenovo & downloaded the latest graphics driver & that has solved my problem. I love this forum!!
