Recommendations for using capacitive touchscreen in wet conditions

June 2017

Recommendations for using the capacitive touchscreen in wet conditions are as follows.

 

  • Load the Wet touch profile using the Touchscreen Profiles utility.
  • Switch to using a finger or soft-tipped capacitive stylus rather than fine hard-tipped stylus.
  • On Mesa 2, load BIOS UEFI 22 or higher.
  • Keep screen tilted at 30 degrees angle or more (so water droplets will not accumulate and pool on the display).

 

Those recommendations should be sufficient in the majority of situations. If needing more, some less common suggestions are as follows.

 

  • Apply a hydrophobic coating such as Rain-X.
  • Remove screen protector sheet than Restart system. Screen protector should not be required on capacitive touchscreen as much as on resistive touchscreen, but if still desired than ulta-clear or anti-glare reportedly work better than polarized.
  • Purchase and use a more conductive passive or even Active capacitive stylus.
