Windows 7: Can we run a touchscreen alongside a standard monitor?

Can we run a touchscreen alongside a standard monitor?

This question is a bit foggy, so I'll word it 2 different ways...

I plan on running my standard dual monitor setup + a small touchscreen for a total of 3.

The touchscreen will be used as a lunchpad of sorts, holding icons for my most used programs \ files, touch, launch, back to old school monitors.

It occurred to me that since the visible pointer would be on another screen, Windows might have to pull the pointer to the touchscreen to click, or might not know to pull it at all.

When running a touch screen next to a regular LCD, can I "click" an icon (via touch) without affecting the pointer on my other screen?

I foresee problems trying to run a touchscreen alongside a standard monitor.
Anyone have experience with this?
