Use Win 8 tablet as touch interface?

I was uncertain where to post this question, apologies if it is in the wrong forum.

My question is, can I use a Windows 8.1 based tablet as a touch screen controller interface to control character movement on the PC running UE4 on Windows 7 pro?

UE4 supports touchscreens. However, if you’re asking if you can use a separate touch PC to control another, that’s not a typical type of thing. The only way to get that to work would be to make a networked game where you run a version of the game on the touch PC and it connects over the network to the other PC and sends commands that way.

Thanks for the very helpful reply darthviper107. I guess I just need to get a touch screen monitor.
