Chrome Browser: How to emulate a touch screen

The Chrome Browser integrates a nice feature to simulate multiple mobile devices or a touch screen.

First of all you have to enable the "Emulation" view in the console drawer. Open the Developer Tools and click the settings icon:

Chrome Developer Tools

Next, switch to the "General" panel and enable "Show emulation view in console drawer"

Now close the settings and press the ESC (Escape Key) and switch to the "Emulation" Panel (2). The "Sensors" menu (3) let's you enable the "Emulate touch screen" (4) checkbox. That's it!

On the end if you can't find "console drawer", just hit "Esc" key and then select the Emulation panel. ;)
