Question [Q] best way to disable touch screen on Vivotab RT?

I tried to post this already but it disappeared... kind of strange... sorry if there are two but its not under my name in my dashboard...
(my first post had back story but I guess its not needed LOL)


Anyway short story I have a VivoTab RT with a broken glass. The digitizer on said glass is acting up clicking randomly on the screen. I will be ordering new glass, but until then Id like to still use my VivoTab... is there anyway to turn off the touch screen? I tried to disable a few different drivers to no help... also I thought there was a setting in control panel to turn it off but maybe they took it out or moved in in Windows RT 8.1? I want this to be temporary since I will be fixing it ASAP just want to keep on using it till then... thank you...

Question REALLY?!?!?

So there is no way to disable it? All the ways I've found on Google is with Windows 8.1 pro not RT so please let me know even a link... something... I would keep disabling things on the drivers menu but Id get screwed if I disable the keyboard and then it wouldn't work anymore... Id have to restore... I can't believe there is not a quick option to just turn off touch...

Sure there is. You just need to go into the device manager, expand Humand Interface Devices and need to disable "HID-complaint Touchscreen". That's it. I tried it on my Vivo Tab RT.
