    Did the app load OK? Hand icon in the notification area? I assume home button -> aero 3d works with win 8?

    OK, I went thru the Windows 8 thread and found that the home button is different.
    So scratch that for Win8.

    FYI, I posted a thread over here to explain how I was able to use this marvelous app with AutoHotKey to make the double-click functionality for the Samsung Series 7 Slate home button toggle touch sensitivity.

    In a nutshell, the AHK code is:

    Code:
    *#tab::^#tab
    ...missing that "*" was stumping me for the longest time. :p

    It was so annoying that I gave up this useful program. If you can fix it, that will be great.

    You know guys, there's a very simple solution this; just make the "orientation lock" switch (you know, that little switch near the keyboard button) on the top left BE the touchscreen toggle. That way, you won't interfere with Windows Flip3d. Why doesn't anyone see that as a simpler solution?

    Well for one it would interfere with rotating my screen :p
    I'm pretty sure someone has had that idea on these forums before but it's not simple because the action is built into the drivers or something as opposed to just being a combination of keypresses.

    Isn't this possible to create/modify driver for that keys?
    Changing behavior of those buttons would be very helpful for many people.

    Hi mst,

    Very interested in your ToggleTouch app. I'm currently getting by using TM2control (also a great tool) but would prefer to be using the home key.

    Unfortunately the download link for ToggleTouch doesn't seem to work anymore. I only get an error message: "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to hydrogen.saran.in.th".

    Is the software still available for download somewhere?

    Many thanks,

    aanon
