Windows 7 Touch Issues

Issue: Touch does not work on SMART Board- except when touching a SMART related software (i.e. Notebook, SMART Ink etc.) Only a problem when using Windows 7.

When in Notebook, touch works fine in the work space, but you must hold a pen to select anything in the toolbars or sidetabs. When outside of SMART Notebook software, no touch is interactive except for SMART Ink (with a pen). You need to change your “Tablet PC” settings.
