    Man, I really needed this per monitor DPI stuff two years ago. I had a Vaio Z which had a full 1080p 13" screen, about 170DPI effectively, but I frequently used it on a regular 23" 1080p external monitor. The result was that I was constantly changing the DPI setting (which meant logging out and back in) based on what monitor I was primarily working on at any one time.

    I'm really, really happy this support has finally been added to Windows. Props, guys!

    Is there any document about "Precision TouchPad"? Samples codes or SDK? I tried to install Windows 8.1 in SurfacePro, but seems no same experience like yours in demo. I also implemented WM_POINTER and DirectManipulation but that is only for mouse/touch, but not touchpad.

    Thanks. Alex
