I'm interested in using my laptop trackpad as a drawing tablet, i.e. Using absolute rather than relative coordinates, similar to Inklet for OSX. Use laptop trackpad as graphics tablet. Ask Question. You won't find a program doing this, because of these three types of touchpads the drivers tries to abstract to a single representation to.
I bought a Monoprice tablet some time ago and used it with my desktop computer. Now that I find myself further away from home, I thought my drawing tablet would marry just fine with my newly purchased laptop. However, once the drivers are downloaded, Windows 8 gestures become disabled and the touchpad driver does not seem to function (inertial scrolling, 2 finger tapping, ect).

Granted, the touchpad driver is not native to my system (Samsung Series 7 Elan Touchpad Drivers on a Gigabyte p34g v2 running windows 8). However I still expect the touchpad drivers to work since the drawing tablet is separate from my laptop.

Is there a way to download tablet drivers without affecting the computer's touchpad? Hi Andymintx, This issue might occur if the drivers are not compatible with Windows 8.1. You may try to install the driver in Windows 8 compatibility mode and check if this helps.
Compatibility mode runs the program using settings from a previous version of Windows. Follow these steps to install the drivers in compatibility mode and check if that helps. Download the driver from the manufacturer’s website.
Right-click on the driver setup file and click on ‘properties’. Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 8 operating system from the drop down menu. Refer to this article to know more.
