    Since my SP2 screen got broken it was working fine with the mouse and touchpad, but now its giving me issues , the mouse at times automatically get stuck at a place from where the screen was broken. is there someway to stop the touch screen from working like we can sttop the trackpad so is there someway we can do the same with the touch screen so i can easily work with my typecover.

    Id venture to guess since its a touch device there isn't a way to disable the digitizer.

    M just of the thought maybe there is some hidden way of temporarily disabling the digitizer.

    Go into Device Manager, find Human Interface Devices and disable those labeled I2C HID.

    Just try disabling / re-enabling them one at a time. FYI - It might not be labeled touch screen. The touch screen on my Dell XPS 27 stopped working and it ended up being just a generic USB HID device.

    It is the one labelled with "touch scren" in this case.

    I think you can use "art dock" and there is a button/shortcut to disable touch...

    Not sure if that would do what you want
