Windows 10 Creators Update comes with a new Virtual Touchpad feature. When enabled, it allows you to control your device with a virtual touchpad which will be displayed on the touch screen (your device’s primary screen) if a second display is connected to your tablet or laptop.
The Virtual Touchpad feature is only supported on any PC, tablet or laptop that has a touchscreen. Once you connect to another monitor, PC, or TV, Virtual Touchpad will become available. You will need to activate it manually. A touchpad icon will appear in the notification area, and tapping on it will bring it up the virtual touchpad.
