What version of Windows 10 did he install, i.e. 1709 or 1803? There are a lot of complaints about the touchscreen not working in 1803.

Was the Windows 10 install an upgrade from another OS like Windows 8.1?

if you paid for a repair and it's not functioning then return it and make him fix it.  but it sounds like he didn't install the touchscreen drivers.

look in the device manager and see if anything has a yellow exclamation point on it.  those are devices the drivers didn't get installed.

One can always initially try going into Device Manager and hitting the button noted in the screenshot below:




as the first thing to try to see if it solves the issue.  It's difficult to know what version of Win10 is involved without having run the winver command since we're right at the cusp of a new version and we don't know when this work was done.


It would also be most helpful if you were to publish a Speccy system snapshot and provide the web address for it in your next reply.  Here are downloadable step-by-step instructions for doing this:
