    Question Use android tablet as touchscreen for windows 8 installed on pc

    I have a new idea.
    Eveybody knows that we can setup a vnc software or use remote desktop in windows 8 to access it on any android tablet with a vnc software.
    I have installed windows 8 on my pc and I do not have a touchscreen.
    I have a 10.1 inch android tablet. I have setup remote desktop on windows 8 and can access my pc's display on my tablet. But it can be used only with the mouse pointer given on screen. When I try to slide my finger on the screen for example, to navigate in the new start screen, instead of scrolling, the display of the screen moves and the blank space appears. This is because the vnc app is designed to work with a pc os that requires mouse. But since this is windows 8, optimised for touchscreens, I want to use my tablet as the touchscreen for windows 8 to use it as a tablet. I will keep my pc on and use it on my tablet.
    Is this possible?

    You are too desperate to "touch" windows 8!
    I don't have a tablet so, can't replicate what you want to do.

    But it would be nice if we can do so!

    the released consumer preview is only for X86 , not ARM. so you can't do it just yet. but i really doubt if M$ will release any preview for ARM as you can easily screw up your tablet trying to flash or install the new OS.

    What he's trying to say is that for you to use the touchscreen as a UI for windows 8, you will need to have the windows installed on the tablet itself.
    To do what you desire to do VNC has to support that. Please see the documentation of VNC.
