I own a Thinkpad X1 Yoga (1st Gen) (model 20FQCTO1WW). Despite that I have owned it for 18 months, I have a stupid question:
Is the plastic film that overlays the touchscreen just something protective that can / should be removed? Or - since this is a touchscreen - is it integral to the operation of the display (so peeling it off would damage the display)?
On mine it is trimmed right to the black plastic bezel with greater precision than any temp / throw-away protective film that I have ever seen before, wihch makes me think that maybe it's supposed to be permanant. However, mine is also slowing turning milky / opaque. If I don't need it, I'd like to remove it. But, of course, I don't want to damage my $2k computer. I've trie to research this, but can't find anything on it.

The film is for temporary protection,, but keeping it doesn't hurt anything as long as the screen has enough sensitivity.

I know you have a x1 yoga and not a x1 carbon but look at post from the knowledge base. I dont think you are supposed to remove it. I dont like the "protector" either since it makes screen look milky.
