cant set my external touch screen monitor as primary

By spurs_slamduncan ·
so i have a compaq laptop, connect the touch screen monitor, installed drivers and all.

i extended the display to the 2nd monitor so i can drag browsers and windows there. but when i touch on the 2nd monitor, the click will occur in the laptop screen.

i then checked the 'use this device as the primary monitor' for the external one but it frozed and displays No Input. so im stuck again with my laptop display..

i need to set the touch screen as primary cause i will be running some program that requires the touch function,

Then go back into display settings and extend the desktop again, this time the primary should be your external, and the secondary should be the notebook

Is that when you move the NB and try to use it without the External Monitor it will still be set to use the External Monitor as the Default One.

I do this often with Compaq/HP notebooks. The only issues are when people suspend and then undock, and even then it usually recovers
