Why is a touch screen an input device?
Jan 24, 2019

     Any computer device (including a touch screen) that takes input from the person operating the device is considered an input device. When you touch your finger on a touch screen to interact with an icon, text, or another object that is considered input because you're telling the computer what you'd like for it to do. Your finger is the same as using a computer mouse on a desktop computer, which is also another type of input device.

     Note: Technically speaking a touch screen is an input/output device. Because not only is it capable of accepting input, it also displays the output from the computer.
