Hi,
I have a Windows 10 desktop and Windows 8.1 AIO PC with touch screen enabled. I use AIO display for my desktop vial HDMI in port.
With a HDMI and KVM switch I use both computers, one at a time. Since desktop is connected to AIO  touch screen monitor, is there a way to enable touch screen functionality on desktop? The desktop NVidia control panel shows AIO display as primary(there is no secondary). But Windows Device manger shows it as generic monitor.

AIO display for my desktop vial HDMI in port. you have to use the dvi port
David is correct that HDMI will not support touchscreen, in fact it may be that a USB connection will be required. It does not appear that your configuration will support touch.

upon further thinking there is no way to enable touch screen from the All in One pc on another computer .. If it was a separate monitor then it is possible

It seems HDMI is supported, but you are right about USB connection.

"We connected the display via HDMI, and our test PC recognized it automatically as a Windows touchscreen device, booting directly into its native resolution without issue. "
Can you clarify why HDMI cannot be supported?

Thanks, for pointing me in right direction. However, it does seem which way you connect your monitor, all you need is USB feedback to computer.
There are such kits available on eBay.
