A touchscreen desktop computer or any other touchscreen for that matter is a device in which the display screen and input device are the same, allowing the user to interact with the computer system using one’s fingers. The touchscreen monitor of the desktop, while looking similar to an ordinary display, actually includes several layers that render it sensitive to pressure. Interaction with the computer system occurs by touching areas of the display that are predetermined by the software or operating system.
Desktop PCs with touchscreen technology designed for Windows 10
Touchscreen technology is much older than many of us would normally presume, for it has been around long before the advent of smart phones, computers and game consoles to which we associate it with. Some historians might point out the origin of touch technology is related to the music industry, all the way back in 1948. Later, in 1965, the touch technology was put into application on screens with E.A. Johnson Touchscreen, in England’s Royal Radar Establishment.
This basic version was modified to be implemented later in the touchscreens of ATMs, customer-service kiosks, and other similar developments. However, the credit of developing the first widely-known and used touchscreen computer goes to the University of Illinois in 1972. An infrared touch panel was used by the students to answer questions. The multi-touch technology was introduced in 1982.
This concept was used in 1984 to control and operate computer graphics with fingers. Throughout the 80’s and 90’s, the technology continued to progress. Finally, in 2007, touchscreen technology in consumer devices was well-received with the Apple iPhone.

The inherent touch screen technology of the device determines the way in which the touch event is registered. The three types of touchscreen technology used mainly include:
Resistive: The thin metallic screen here is electrically conductive. They are resistive too, to outside factors like dust and water. The touch event initiates a change in the electrical current that is sent to the controller for processing.
- Very affordable
- Dust and water-proof
- Finger or stylus can be used
- Offers only 75% clarity
- Easily damaged by sharp objects
Surface Acoustic Wave: Ultrasonic waves pass over the touch screen panel. On touching the panel, portion of the wave there is absorbed. This change in the ultrasonic wave localizes and registers the touch and the information is sent to the controller for processing.
- Responds to finger or stylus
- Most advanced of all
- Damaged by dust or water
Capacitive: Here the screen is coated with electrically charged materials. On touching, a small amount of charge is drawn to the point of contact. This charge is measured by the circuits located at the corners of the panel. The information is sent to the controller for processing.
- Great clarity
- Unaffected by outside elements like dust, water etc.
- Only finger can be used
Here are the various ways to use the touch PC computer controls
- Single touch or tap
- Double-tap – to zoom in, for selection etc.
- Touch and hold
- Swipe – to scroll in a certain direction or change pages
- Drag – to pull objects to a different location
- Pinch – to zoom out
