Put an end to accidental touches on your computer's touch screen simply by disabling this user interface.
If you have a modern computer, it likely has a display that supports touchscreen navigation. In some cases, especially if the device is a hybrid and can be used as a tablet, a touch interface makes perfect sense. It is generally sufficient to detach the screen when possible, or open it completely by sticking the back of the screen to the bottom of the laptop to use it this way.
However, some computers are equipped with a touch screen, but it can only be used as a regular one, as the hinge of the screen limits the opening of the latter. In this case, support for touchscreen navigation, which is less practical in this use, may be just anecdotal. In most cases, users prefer to use their devices in the traditional way, using the built-in trackpad or mouse, and eventually never use the touch interface. The only problem is that it is not uncommon to accidentally touch the screen and thus inadvertently tap certain areas of the screen.
To avoid this, you can easily disable the touch interface. The maneuver will take no more than a few seconds and does not require any particular technical knowledge.
