How to Calibrate or Reset Screen for Pen or Touch in Windows 7 and Windows 8

information   Information
If you notice a touch by your finger or pen on the screen occurs next to the point touched and not at the point of touch, then you may need to either calibrate or reset calibration for the input screen.

You would calibrate to adjust how accurately your screen senses when you use a pen or finger.

You would reset calibration back to default if you had calibrated your touch and pen settings, and now say for example the charms don't appear when you swipe in on the right edge of your screen. It's possible that Windows isn't detecting the edge of your screen accurately because the screen boundary was reset during the calibration.


This tutorial will show you how to calibrate or reset calibration of the input screen for pen and touch in Windows 7 and Windows 8.
