If you are running Windows 7 on a Touch enabled computer such as HP TouchSmart, then you should download the free Windows 7 Touch Pack. Microsoft announced the add on almost a year ago and it was only available to OEM’s to provide on select systems. As long as your computers monitor supports multi-touch, you can download it from Microsoft directly for free! More from CNET:
The Touch Pack offers three games and three Microsoft Surface apps, all designed to show off the experience of moving, pinching, and twirling your fingers on a touch screen.
What’s in the Touch Pack? On the game side, Blackboard challenges you to solve a puzzle by creating your own unique machine on a blackboard. Garden Pond is a peaceful game that asks you to move an origami shape around a pond by touching the screen to create tiny ripples. And Rebound prompts you to use your fingertips to move Tesla balls (which respond to touch with an electrical light show) and try to catapult a game ball into your opponent’s goal.

More about Windows Touch: Instead of pointing and clicking, you just touch and tap. Pan the screen to scroll through Web pages and lists and tap to launch programs and open documents. Sort and resize photos more naturally. With Windows 7 and a touch-enabled monitor, virtually any program that works with Windows now responds to your touch.
Windows 7 is touch-friendly throughout. For instance, the Start menu, Windows Taskbar, and Windows Explorer all have bigger icons that are easier to select with your finger. You can use your ginger to arrange the pictures in a photo album or scroll through and select recorded TV in Windows Media Center.
