  • Need to do Windows 8 Demo, Need to Activate pointer,


    Hello, I want to attach my Slate to a projector (easy bit), but i have seen in demos people have activated a feature which shows a circle where they are touching the device. How can I do that ?

  • Hey Angel_Nights,


    Try enabling the Optimize visual feedback for projection... option in the Pen and Touch section of Control Panel. You can do this by:

    • Enter the Start screen
    • Click Control Panel
    • Click More settings in the left column
    • Open Pen and Touch
    • Click the Touch tab
    • Check the boxes for Show visual feedback when touching the screen and Optimize visual feedback for projection to an external monitor
    • Click OK


    Hope that helps.

  • Angel_Nights,

    The application that you are referring to is not included in the release of the Windows Developer Preview.
