Several months ago I installed Planar PCT2265 touchscreen monitors on our courtroom benches. The computers already had dual monitors and the only way I could get the Planar touch to work properly was to make it the main monitor. If it was the second monitor, wherever you touched on the monitor would move the pointer on the other (non-touch) monitor.
Now one of our judges wants both monitors on his bench to be touchscreen so that he doesn't have to use the mouse at all. Based on the issue I just mentioned I'm not sure it is going to work.
Any suggestions on how to get dual touchscreen monitors working?
I haven't done it myself but I heard it's possible, but a little tricky. I believe the key is to go into the "Pen and Tablet" mode settings and run the setup to identify each display and which are touch and which aren't.
what Jenner said, it's actually Tablet PC settings in control panel , you then click on the setup option. it then has you cycle through the screens with enter, and tap on it when the option is on the actual screen. it then maps the control to the correct screen. I haven't done it yet with multiple screens, but it should work fine, it's just like plugging in another mouse.
(I remoted into a PC to show the option, so it's greyed out because I don't have a touchscreen when remoted in)
I've done it with different brands of displays - Windows pen and tablet settings, otherwise I'd look for a tool from Planar.
I had a really strange one off years ago, I can't even remember the brand anymore. I had to dig into a tool that came with the driver, and set the touch area there to apply it to one/multiple monitors. Windows (7), in this specific instance, had a way of not allowing a size greater than the drivers/installed utility allows.
I looked, though, and Planar offers no specific drivers or tools on the product page.
So, Windows 10 did not help with the issue. With two of the Planar monitors attached, touch only works on monitor "1". In Tablet PC settings whichever monitor is "2" says no pen or touch input is available. Even if I physically swap the monitors, touch will not work on monitor "2". Any ideas?
