Running the test

Before you run the test, complete the test setup as described in the test requirements: Windows Touch Testing Prerequisites.

Because touch capabilities must be consistent across all computers, a minimum number of supported touch points are required. Five-finger support allows for whole-hand interactions in addition to quick and efficient touch-screen typing.

This test presents a single scenario that asks you to briefly place five or more contacts on the screen. All contacts that are placed at the beginning of the test must continue to report for the full duration of the test.
