I'm trying to find a way to enable touch style input in Windows 8. Specifically, I want to have the touch friendly user interface.

I'm looking at doing an experiment where I use a Wiimote for input, and I think the touch friendly user interface would make the experience much smoother.

I looked in my Control Panel, but I don't have the Pen and Touch thing, which makes me think I may need to add a fake input device of some kind to get Windows to do as I want.

have you tried installing a tablet driver, like one that would be used with, say, a wacom pen tablet? i assume your knowledge or programming is very great, so it shouldnt be that hard to modify a a driver there to work with a wiimote. – Ben Franchuk May 5 '13 at 18:10
What are your hardware specs? Make and model? – mcandre May 7 '13 at 19:32

You have to connect it to a touch screen or something like that, so once the drivers are installed the touch input will start to work

You can try to buy a cheap tablet or test it with a touch screen :)
