Touchpad settings

My touchpad is a bit too sensitive, is there a way to change the settings? I have a Toshiba a305-6916.

Go into mouse settings, they are in there.

The settings do not have anything for the touchpad, just the mouse.

Turn down mouse sensitivity, it works for touchpad too.

I have exactly the same issue (Samsung Notebook NP-R70) . . the touchapad is soooo sensitive its driving me bonkers.

Apologies for being completely dim, but where is the mouse sensitivity adjustment ?
Under HARDWARE, MOUSE, I've a dialogue with adjustments for BUTTON, POINTERS, WHEEL and a tab for HARDWARE, but I don't see any dialogue for sensitivity adjustment.

It appears Win7 has configured the Touchpad as a PS2 mouse. When not on the move I use a USB wireless mouse rather than the Touchpad, but of course all you have to do is look at the Touchpad and it sends the mouse out of sight.

I tried typing in "Touchpad sensitivity" into MS Help . . .and provided MS with feedback on the usefulness of what the search returns ;-/

Much appreciate your thoughts

VCator, it should just be either sensitivity settings, or acceleration settings. The option should be under Pointer options I believe.

Hi there
on a laptop you can DISABLE the touchpad completely on boot -- I'm not a great fan of touchpads - and on my laptop if I don't disable the touchpad I get the cursor randomly jumping all over the place making data entry almost impossible.

What you do is to download the generic SYNAPTICS touch pad driver - this will work on pretty well on all laptops.

On install you get settings such as display options on boot where you can alter the options for that session etc etc. including disabling the wretched thing completely.

You can also set it so you don't see the options at start up as well.

Drivers | Synaptics

cheers

Jimbo, the Synaptics driver works perfectly, and sensitivity can be adjusted :-)
Whew . . .you saved me from going completely bonkers.

Thank you for your help

Hi there
That's what we're here for.

I had horrible problems myself with this stuff too - by passing on info it makes it easier for everyone else too.
