    I've been using my SP3 as my main PC. I have a Samsung all-in-one PC that has a touch capable display. I connect the SP3 to the Samsung and use the Samsung as an extended display. The display works fine. However, the touch capability doesn't work on the Samsung.

    I connect via HDMI to the Samsung. I also connected a USB cable to both - thinking that might send the necessary drivers. But no luck. Any suggestions?

    That would work if you had a Touch Enabled Monitor. Your Samsung AiO has an HDMI pass-through but only for Video. I have a Lenovo Touch enabled Monitor that works using HDMI and a USB Cable.

    The Samsung is touch enabled.

    But it is an AiO and the Touchscreen input is attached internally to the PC BUS and is not externally accessible, video pass-through not touch pass-through. Touch enabled Monitors have a pig-tail that has the USB Adapter with the HDMI usually via a cable split.
