The monitor is touch-sensitive thanks to its touch-sensitive screen. A touch screen is an input device just like a mouse or a keyboard, and the user’s fingers transmit position information via the touch screen to the computer. With this technology, you only need to touch the pictures or words on the computer display lightly with your finger, and the computer will react.
Basic Hand Gestures 1. Single Click / Double Click For the item selected on the touch screen, with one finger touch it one or two times, to perform a single click or double click operation. This is similar to the action performed by clicking the mouse left button.
3. Dragging Movement First touch your finger on the desired item on the screen and hold it there, then make a dragging movement. This is similar to the click and drag movement you can make with a mouse. 4. Rolling Movement When you move your finger one time vertically (or horizontally) on the touch screen, this is called a Rolling Operation.
5. Zoom Operation Touch two fingers lightly on the desired item on the touch screen, then keeping both fingers on the screen, change the distance between them. By increasing (or decreasing) the distance, you can perform a zoom in (or zoom out) operation.
Related Touch Screen Settings • Select Hardware and Sound → Pen and Touch from the Settings charm. • Select touch actions which you wish to adjust. By clicking on “Settings”, you can adjust the “Speed” and “Spatial tolerance” parameters, to match the user’s natural way of double-clicking. You can double-click on the lower right corner of the icon to test this.
Precautions when using the Touch Screen 1. When using the touch screen, be careful not to tear the surface with any sharp objects. 2. To ensure normal use of the touch screen, ensure that both the screen surface and your fingers are clean and dry. 3.
9. Avoid using the computer in sunlight, which will affect the function of the touch screen. Note: The touch screen will not affect other computer processes when used normally. 10. Recognition of touch gestures can be influenced by the following: • Touching the correct place on the screen.
