Acer Touch Tools2

Acer Touch Tools provide touch-optimized utilities for working efficiently -- without a physical keyboard or mouse.



When using a touchscreen to work on detailed files like Excel sheets, fingers can be a bit too big. AccuFinger solves that problem! With this tool you can use your finger to select tiny items and place them in precise insertion points on a touchscreen. AccuFinger also makes it easy to drag small bars or columns, resize windows and open pop-up menus with the tip of your finger.

Acer Screen Grasp3

Whether you're using a desktop app or a Windows Store app, Screen Grasp makes it easy to capture, edit and share screenshots with the convenience of touch.


Multi-select allows you to perform tasks faster by selecting multiple things at the same time on the touchscreen. Simply tap the multi-select icon once to start selecting and tap it again to stop.

ESC simulation

The escape key on a keyboard provides useful functions in many programs and Windows 8. You can take advantage of all these functions without a keyboard by tapping the ESC icon in Acer Touch Tools.

Touch Tools settings

Settings for all the tools are just a touch away. Quickly modify the pointer size and timeout for AccuFinger, or select either right- or left-hand operation to optimize pointer orientation for the selected mode.

Windows Store Apps
