Venue 8 Pro Touch problems in desktop mode

I use Amazon cloud player, and it is nearly impossible to click on a individual song or album using the touch screen.  Why is this and does a mouse help this?  I feel i shouldn't need a mouse to click on a song or album to play.  Any help would be great!

PS-This is my first post so sorry if it has been asked before?

I was just able to log in to Amazon and play a song out of my cloud storage using IE (without the Amazon client).

I have found that using pure IE allows resizing of the screen using the fingers.

Not all apps allow for this, including Chrome.

Maybe this will help.

Thanks Jay for the idea, 

I'm going to try to reinstall it after I updated all the dell software/firmware updates.  Hopefully this will help.  I love the cloud player app and I really hope Amazon release one in the windows marketplace.  I was wondering if a stylus might help with pinpointing the song or album.  Anyone else have an idea?

Install this.  I got the tip from another forum and it is awesome for clicking and dragging tiny things on normal pc desktop program.  I use it in "float" mode and have it on my taskbar next to the keyboard icon.

Love the Touch Mouse Pointer software.  The latest version works great with the Venue 8 Pro and makes the teeny desktop objects manageable.  I ordered the Dell active stylus for note taking.

I also have a stylus, which I purchase for OneNote.  I have found myself using it more for pointing and clicking.

THANK YOU for sharing this!  The "touch mouse pointer" is quite a nice enhancement!  

I have physical touchpads on all my laptops and wireless keyboards.  This is beautiful.
