    How to Activate Touchscreen for Surface-3 to Dell S2340T

    I have a new Dell S2340T touchscreen monitor (quite splendid so far as I can tell) that I connected to my Surface Pro 3 (Love It) using a DisplayPort cable. The screen mirrors and extends to the Dell with no problem. However, the touch isn't working on the Dell (it is on the S3). I assume that it should, but am not even certain of that.

    What I've tried:
    • Reboot the S3
    • Download and install S2340T driver from Dell, then reboot
    • Read the monitor manual
    • Searched the web and this site - all no luck


    Any ideas on how to get it working would be appreciated.

    Can't say if the same applies to your setup but the few Touchscreen monitors I've seen including my own HP L2105tm required both the VGA or DVI connection plus a USB connection to the computers. The USB was required to enable the touch function.

    I did look up the monitor and didn't find a reference to what I mentioned but seeing there's USB ports on the monitor does suggest they are as useful as a USB Hub which does require a USB cable to the computer. And get the proper cable, the ports were listed as USB 3.0.

    That did the trick. Problem solved. I sure didn't see it in the documentation, but it works well.
    Thanks
