I have a windows 8 acer Iconia touchscreen tablet. I was tracing an image onto paper on it, but it kept sensing me and I couldn't complete the tracing without the screen changing. So, I was wondering if there is a way to temporarily disable it. How do I disable it so it doesn't sense my touches?

  • What kind of tablet? Why would you want to disable a touch screen on a primarily touch device? – New-To-IT Jan 30 '15 at 22:12
  • Please provide more detail. – ʇolɐǝz ǝɥʇ qoq Jan 30 '15 at 22:14

You can disable driver in Device Manager. Run devmgmt.msc, identify touch device and disable the driver.
