I have a client who has a laptop that has had a defective digitizer on her touch screen and it's been that way almost since shortly after she bought it. Since she never uses, nor intended to use the touch screen, we decided to disable it so that she could use her computer without being driven crazy by activations of the touch screen seemingly "by ghosts." It was interesting to watch, as it looked almost like rain was hitting the touch screen and the "ripples" of each drop showed on the screen where it thought it had been touched.
When she updated to Version 1803 it reenabled the touch screen, which threw things into chaos again.
It struck me that many here might have chosen to disable their touch screens way back when and be encountering their unexpected revival after installing Version 1803. Since I had to put together a set of step-by-step instructions for her, with screenshots, I thought I'd share those here in case anyone needs (or just wants) to disable theirs. The screenshots have alternative text as well to describe them for anyone who's blind or low-vision and wants to know what's being presented by those screenshots.
I've run out of attachment space on BC itself, but you can download these instructions from my Google Drive by activating the following click-through link: Disabling the Touch Screen. The file is in MS-Word format and was created using MS-Word 2010, so it's a .docx file.
