Key points

Alternative to mouse input on supported devices (tablets, some laptops and many all-in-one PCs).
All games on the Windows Store are built to be touch-friendly.
Most PC games aren't suited to touch input due to expecting the greater precision of a mouse cursor.
Some games have a touchscreen mode that has to be enabled first while others are inherently touch-friendly.

Touchscreen mode[edit]

Some games have a touchscreen mode; enabling this changes right click behaviour and some game elements to be more convenient.

Inherently touch-friendly[edit]

Some games are designed for mobile platforms or are otherwise suited to touch input without any further changes.
