Windows 7: cursor auto click

01 Jan 2011   #11

Win xp 32 bit
acer aspire auto clicks

I had the same problem with my acer aspire running XP. It's not a W7 issue. The synaptics touchpad is the issue. To correct it, this is what I did:
control Panel
Device Settings
highlight the Synaptics touchpad
click settings
in the drop downs on the left, select tapping
click on tap zone (may have to expand the selection by clicking on the plus sign to see it)
click the enable tap zones choice (this is counter-intuitive)
expand tap zones on the left folder tree by clicking the plus sign
set each corner tap zone to "No zone"
click Apply after you do each one individually
after all are done, click OK
this should do it.
good luck, and this enabling automatically is a stupid idea that acer had

Thank you rvmatt
I have a Toshiba Satellite L775D. It was very annoying to have mouse-hover always opening up separate windows. This fixed it, although I set each tapping zone Action (Bottom Left, Bottom Right, Top Left, and Top Right) to No Zone and after which I only had to click Apply once for all of them.

No more telling my laptop it is stupid.

Auto-hide cursor?
Is there a way to auto-hide the cursor after the mouse/trackpad hasn't been touched after (x) seconds? Maybe a registry tweak or a program that is Windows 7 friendly?
