A virtual keyboard is available for text input while using a touchscreen. To open the virtual keyboard, tap the screen
and then tap the Input Panel tab that appears on the left edge of the screen. When you open the virtual keyboard,
it will appear on top of any open windows. You may move it to a convenient position on the screen.
You can customize the virtual keyboard settings by selecting Start > Control Panel > Tablet PC Settings
and in the Other tab select Go to Input Panel Settings.
Calibrating your screen
You may find that you need to recalibrate the screen if it does not react properly
to a tap. To do this select Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Tablet
PC Settings. On the Display tab, select Calibrate.... Follow the instructions to
calibrate the screen.
Additional configuration options are available in Start > Control Panel under
Tablet PC settings and Pen and Touch.
Note: Certain touchscreens have a thin layer of air between layers of glass
and resistive touch film. Occasionally, a series of concentric shapes, called
Newton's Rings, may appear due to the reflection of light between two
surfaces with different temperatures and pressures. This is normal and the
rings will disappear after a few minutes of use.
Cleaning the touchscreen
Touchscreens are delicate and no cleaning products should be used when cleaning the surface. Please follow the
advice given in Cleaning your Computer on page 4.
