Is there anyone who has managed to get Touch Screen work propertly in Windows Media Center?
I do NOT have any Multi Touch, but i do have a usual Touch Screen. But i guess this should be working with Media Center anyway? Like the drag and slide function, or is this function limited to Multi Touch?

Is there some feature, option or setup that is related to Touch Screen that could be swithed on?


To make the touch screen work properly in Windows Media Center, especially if you don't have multi-touch capabilities, you can follow these steps:

1. Check Compatibility: Ensure that your touch screen device is compatible with Windows Media Center. If it's a standard touch screen without multi-touch, it should still work with Media Center.

2. Calibrate Touch Screen: Sometimes, calibrating the touch screen can resolve any responsiveness issues. To calibrate your touch screen in Windows, go to Control Panel > Tablet PC Settings, and then follow the on-screen instructions for calibration.

3. Touch Screen Settings: Windows might have specific touch screen settings that you can check to optimize your touch screen experience. To access and adjust these settings, you can go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Pen and Touch.

4. Enable Touch Screen in Media Center: Windows Media Center should support touch interaction even without multi-touch capabilities. However, you can ensure that touch functionality is enabled within Media Center by checking the settings within the application.

5. Install Updates: Make sure your Windows installation is up to date with all the latest updates. Sometimes, updates can improve touch screen functionality and compatibility with different applications.

6. Third-Party Software: If the basic settings do not work, you might consider third-party software that offers touch screen customization for Windows Media Center.

Remember that while touch functionality should work in Windows Media Center with a standard touch screen, some advanced gestures and features may be limited without true multi-touch capabilities. For basic interactions like dragging and sliding, a standard touch screen should suffice.

If you encounter any specific issues or need further assistance, feel free to provide more details about your touch screen device or any error messages you might be receiving.
