Windows 10 Touch Screen Left Click

Hello,

I have created an HMI that is running on a Windows 10 touchscreen. There are many buttons on this HMI that are meant for an operator to hold down.

I have disabled the touch and hold right-click.

I have replicated this problem outside of the HMI, so it is definitely on the Windows side.

With the disabled right-click when you hold down on the screen Windows 10 clicks once upon release. I would like it to left-click and hold it down as long as they are touching the screen. Is there an older touch screen driver that I could use to fix this issue? Is there a way to completely get rid of the touch and hold gesture? Is there even a fix for this?

Thanks,

Hi,

Sorry that I need more details from you

I have disabled the touch and hold right-click.

Could you please explain right-click? I think you disabled the right-click function of the mouse. And as touch has been disabled so your Win 10 can only be controlled by the HMI.

Could you please elaborate the problem? Based on my understanding, you are trying to achieve a function instead of solving an issue.

I haven't owned a touchscreen myself so it's really confusing to me. When you talk about right-click and left-click, you are talking about the mouse, right? I think when you hold down the screen, for example, you are holding down the exit on the screen, it will take effect and you exit. What's the meaning of left-click and hold it down as long as they are touching the screen?

I would like it to left-click

If you'd like to change between right or left click of mouse, you can refer to Change Mouse Primary Button to Left or Right in Windows 10.

Is there an older touch screen driver

Usually we don't recommend using older drivers for they might be incompatible with Windows 10.

Is there a way to completely get rid of the touch and hold gesture?

If you want to disable touchscreen, please refer to this link Enable and disable your touchscreen in Windows 10

hi

When you hold your finger on a touchscreen it turns it into a right click when you release your finger. So picture you're playing a car game and you need to hold down the accelerator with your finger. When you release your finger a pop up appears, interrupting your game, as if you just right clicked with your mouse. At everytime you release the accelerator..

At the moment I'm trying to play piano on screen and in musical scores sometimes you need to play a long note. So pressing the key does nothing, when I release it thinks I want to right click. I disabled right clicking via long press but now when I click on the piano key... Nothing. On release it plays the note. You can imagine that in a musical sense it's just a nightmare not having a sound come out the moment you press on a piano key.

When pressing the key I need a left click. Holding down this key should keep playing the musical note until I release the key. So left click should stay left click and hold down left click until I release left click... This is not happening.

Is there a fix yet?

Thank you
