Windows 7: Touch screen anyone using

Touch screen anyone using

Looking into using a touch screen monitor. I use Windows 7 Home Premium and I understand that Windows Touch is available on the version.

If I would get the monitor, do I need to find drivers or are they include with Win 7?

Is anyone using a touch screen monitor now?

Looking at Windows 8, I have been playing with the Consumer Preview copy and it looks like a touch screen would be useful with Win 8 if a person would decide to upgrade to that.

Thanks

Hello Jack, welcome to Sevenforums!

Touchscreen is useful, and fun. It is by no means neccessary, however. Windows has a standard driver, but for a touchscreen, you will want to look up the driver on the monitor's manufacturer's website. There are 2 different drivers - 64 and 32 bit. Make sure you get the right one according to your system.

If I were to use touchscreen, it would be because of application(s) that require it, or are easier to use because of it.

You're welcome. I had a good time using MS Paint on a touchscreen, kinda like finger painting without the mess

It can be a lot of fun, but sometimes they can be quite expensive. Good luck to you!
