Touch screen support is included with newer versions of Windows, but some amount of programming has to be done for it to actually be included in a game. From what I've heard, it's a lot of work. And it's completely separate from providing the essential touch screen support for Android or IOS. It might not be worth supporting it for a single visual novel, but Ren'Py is used in a ton of visual novels. If you write support for it once, every game anyone makes with it will have touch screen support.
I have carpal tunnel syndrome, so using touch screens is much easier for me. And I'm sure there's alot of people who would just rather lie in bed and play a visual novel on their touch screen than sit at their desktop computer. I have to admit that I don't know how much demand there is for this, and I don't know how hard it is to code.
If you want touch screen support for Windows in your Ren'Py games, post here to tell the developers that you support this suggestion. Or post here to tell them how much you hate touch screen support.

Which games in particular are you having difficulty with?

I had also tried Loren the Amazon Princess previously but had it crash and then just gave up. I tried it again today, and it also worked.
So... I guess just pretend I never said anything.
