I'm looking to have the new 7" Raspberry official touch screen working on Windows 10 IoT.

Does anyone have ever tried it? It looks to work pretty well with LINUX but there is no such docs or samples on get it working on Win10 IoT.

    People on raspberry or microsoft can reply on whether a driver is around or with some workaround in order to get it working or someone from driver development maybe had tried something but it still a development question IMHO... – Gutemberg Ribeiro Dec 28 '15 at 0:31

the touchscreen made by the Raspberry Pi Foundation is not yet fully supported by Windows 10 IoT Core 10586. The display works but not the touch.


As an alternative, you might use this


  • Hey @Danvy, Looks like we have to wait... Sad :( We have some production scenario for both card payment scenarios and also car infotainment devices but both requires touch interfaces since both are headed devices... This is pretty basic and we should have it working at least on supported devices like PI2. Thanks anyway for the reply. – Gutemberg Ribeiro Dec 29 '15 at 20:35
  • @danvy, you say "The display works", how do you back up that statement? A post you read or have you gotten it to work? – Stefan Ahlm Dec 30 '15 at 20:24
  • Some internal tests – danvy Dec 30 '15 at 22:15
  • Thanks for the reply @danvy, would be nice to have it working... Many scenarios for IoT requires a touch interface and PI2 is one of the most used hardwares for development nowadays. The supported touch here ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/win10/SupportedInterfaces.htm is never on stock while PI Foundation one is widely accessible. I believe it is a matter of having drivers for the touch controller. Thanks – Gutemberg Ribeiro Jan 4 '16 at 9:53

    The screen is now supported on the Insider Preview build – Jeff Jun 21 '16 at 0:59

The screen now seems to be fully supported on the latest Insider Preview build (14342).


I use this https://www.adafruit.com/products/2407 screen and everything works (Touch / Display) fine

  • could you please describe how you got it working? The product description mention "We also noted it does not work with a Raspberry Pi + Windows 10 IOT yet.". Are you sure it worked on Windowd 10 IoT? Also, looks like it emulates a mouse and not a touch device... – Gutemberg Ribeiro Jan 12 '16 at 15:41
  • Hi - you install / setup it following this blog post blog.falafel.com/… -- you are right - it act's as a mouse - so you can use "normal" UI elements but zoom or other actions (multi touch) are not possible – ManniAT Jan 12 '16 at 19:06
  • I see. Thanks! This unit actually has a problem for our project due to the connectors which are on the left side. But thanks! – Gutemberg Ribeiro Jan 12 '16 at 19:17

The display is not supported by Windows 10 IoT (using Version 10.0.10586.0) yet. Microsoft needs to work on the drivers, because this display is already in use by Raspberry users.

To get around this limitation you can get an Adafruit TFP401 HDMI/DVI Decoder with Touch and connect the display with the HDMI and USB inputs of the Raspberry. See Setting up a 7-inch Touchscreen on a Pi 2 with Windows IoT Core Insider Preview by Carey Payette for detailed instructions.

  • yes, drivers are needed. This Adafruit is not a true touch device. It is a "mouse simulator". Gestures are not supported... – Gutemberg Ribeiro Jan 28 '16 at 17:58
