    share


    Hello
    I have tried to share many times with my desktop and the response is that share cannot be done form the desktop.
    Does that mean a touch screen only can share or am I not performing this properly.

    What are your trying to share to what machine and from what machine?

    I think your question answered mine. I don't have a touch machine; I have a desktop and wondered what type of circumstance would warrant the share feature. Is that it can only be done with touch screens?

    OK, I'm glad it's figured out.

    My reply was a guess and not an answer but I see the guess was accurate?

    Glad it was accurate. How did you find out it was accurate?

    Share did not want to work with the desktop and I began to wonder why it was there. It was therefore, a wild guess.
