Two Touchscreen Monitors and One PC, how would I do multiple touches RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 


    Just a little bit about my set-up. 


    I have two 60inch sharp touchscreen boards that are connect via two separate HDMI's into two separate HDMI ports in graphics card. 

    My issue arises here, I am unable to touch both monitors (when it works, sharp drivers are shaky) simultaneously. 

    Is windows 7 capable of doing two separate mices, via one computer? (in this case, its not mice its touches).. 


    Thanks in advance!!!

    You can now control the PC from either screen (but you can't take input from both screens at exactly the same time, if you do, it'll recognise input from the primary)
