  • We have split the product into minimal purchases for those who do no want all aspects of Tablet Pro. We respect that inspite of great these products are or how far the author of this tutorial can throw a football (hint – over those mountains), you should not feel pressured to purchase products you don’t need regardless of the high likelihood of impulse buy them at a later date at a higher price.

    purchase screen

  • You will be presented with a screen like the one above. This is the Tablet Pro activation screen. Click any of the four icons in the center. Each one is linked to exactly the same file so it doesn’t matter which one you click. (we may make the whole section click as one unit in the future)

    auto download

    Click “Save File”

  • I recommend saving to your desktop. By default the file will be saved in Downloads.

    Double click the file.

    Start by installing the Touchzoomdesktop component

    install touchzoomdesktop

  • Follow the prompts.

    install next

    install agree

    install sign out touchzoomdesktop

    Do not sign out yet. No harm will come of you or you’re loved ones should you accidentally click “yes”. It is quicker to wait till the full process is done

  • Follow the prompts.

    Now install the Touchmousepointer component of Tablet Pro.

    install tablet pro

  • Installing this component will look nearly identical to the installation for the Touchzoomdesktop component. There is one exception. Administrator privileges are required for the TouchMousePointer component.

    touchmousepointer install

  • You will be asked to sign out. If you say “Yes”, nothing will happen. I recommend you click “Yes” instead.

    You computer will now log you out.

    Once you have returned to your desktop you will likely see the TouchMousePointer icon on your taskbar near the battery indicator.

  • If you’re icon does not look the same as the one above don’t panic. If your icon looks like the image below,

    taskbar icon

  • right click menupanic
    There are two options for the taskbar icon. The above is not one of them.
    Right click the taskbar icon.The right click menu has many important aspects to it.
    For now we will simply finish the upgrade process.If you don’t see the icon on the taskbar,
    you may need to enable its appearance by right clicking in any empty space on the taskbar.
    Go to “Toolbars”
    Enable TouchZoomDesktop and TouchMousePointer, If “Upgrade” is not present you have finished the install

  • If “Upgrade” is present please continue below.
