Defines hardware and device settings


The hardware dialog is used to associate the pointer device with the monitor / desktop area that is controlled by the device. It also shows hardware port information.



Shows the desktop area handled by the pointer device.  In the example shown below the device ‘Quanta Computer, Dual’ is assigned to the desktop area displayed on Monitor 2:



The desktop area can be set to the following values:


Whole: This is normally set in a single monitor system. Whole actually indicates the Primary monitor.


Monitor N: In a multi-monitor environment this option is used to associate the device to a specific monitor. Important: See Configure All below. If using UPDD extended touch in a multi-monitor environment in Windows 7 or Windows 8 further configuration is required as described here.


Custom: A custom desktop area can also be defined to restrict the cursor movement to a specific area within the desktop. A full desktop calibration screen has a virtual co-ordinate size of 65535 x and y.  Custom calibration areas are based on these co-ordinate values.


Other: Used to specify non native desktop segments normally associated with graphics drivers used to extend the desktop across multiple monitors.


Configure All… Useful in multi monitor systems this will automatically assign the correct desktop for all touch monitors on the system rather than having to manually assign them one at a time.  A cross is displayed on each monitor in turn and if touched the desktop is automatically assigned to the touch device. Esc or no touch will cancel the function for a given monitor. Important note: This option is especially important in Windows 7 where in some instances the Monitor number seen in the Windows Display Properties does not correlate to the internal display reference (particularly when multiple graphics cards are configured in the system). E.g. we have a 3 monitor system with 3 x dual graphics cards where the display properties shows one of the monitors as Monitor 3 but the actual internal display name relates to Monitor 5!  In this case Monitor 5 needs to be selected and this would not be known by an end user.


See on-line multi-monitor documentation for more information.

Shows the port connected to the device.  In the case of USB, PS/2 and Bus connected devices this shows connection information.  In the case of serial this option can be used to configure serial port settings.

This option is used to add a device. Under UPDD 4.1.x only non USB devices are manually added. USB devices will be automatically added by the PnP manager.

Used to remove a device. Under UPDD 4.1.x only non USB (e.g. serial) or inactive (unplugged) USB devices are manually removed. Active USB devices cannot be removed.

If shown, this option invokes a controller firmware page to adjust firmware settings and / or test the controller.
