Run Transactor on a tablet or touch screen PC

Transactor Desktop will run on tablets and touch-screen PCs if you choose the right operating system and then preferably set your Transactor Desktop user preferences Look & Feel to 'Touch tablet'.

Although the 'Touch Tablet' mode does make Transactor Desktop easier for touch screen use, if your tablet is going to be used for intensive entry of job information then consider also getting a compatible keyboard or a low-cost integrated desktop PC instead. There are some operations which may be faster using a separate keyboard rather than the tablet/touch screen's pop up screen keyboard.

We recommend downloading the free Transactor Desktop trial to get familiar with the different way of working with touch screens. See 'Working with touch screens' below.




Choosing your tablet


Most tablets come with Windows, Apple or Android operating systems.

Windows
Transactor Desktop will install directly on a Windows 10 Pro tablet (If you are not sure then check your tablet has the same Windows desktop that you're used to seeing on a Windows desktop PC). 

Apple / iPad
Currently there is no version of Transactor Desktop for iPads (iOS). Transactor Desktop will run fine on Mac desktop and laptops using virtualisation software. See I have an Apple Mac - Can I use Transactor?

Android
Currently there is no version of the Transactor Desktop application for Android.

Working with touch screens


Once you have installed Transactor Desktop, set the user preferences to the Touch Tablet Look & Feel.

  • From the Tools menu choose My Preferences
  • In the Look & Feel box, choose 'Touch Tablet'.
