Windows 7: Touchpad settings

Check for changes and reload ALPS driver

I had the same condition occur. I was frustrated because I could not access any touchpad features. Upon further investigation, I found the Microsoft's PS2 mouse software had been installed inadvertently. So I when into the driver tab and changed the driver back to the ALPS. Restart... problem solved. Now by going to the Mouse configuration through the Control Panel, I was able to change the settings - uncheck the 'tapping' box. Problem solved... no more jumping around the screen and inadvertent text changes/deletions.

Just watched a YouTube video saying you should shut off TAPPING feature; as the tapping makes the touchpad sensitive. He's speaking about his Fujitsu T730 Tablet PC; yet it worked for my ASUS.

From my system tray I selected the icon that looks like the monitor; right clicked the PROPERTY OF TOUCH PAD; select ELAN tab; OPTIONS tab; ONE FINGER tab; TAPPING tab; and remove the checkmarks.

Made a world of difference.

Looks like it,
Mouse properties should show a section for your touchpad settings,

Open it and all the settings will be listed,

Thanks Thrash Zone. I don't have those options in Windows 7. I have the ELAN TAB vs your DEVICE SETTINGS! Silly that Windows 7 doesn't provide TOUCHPAD settings. Remarkable difference removing the TAPPING feature!

Stupid Touchpads

I was just given a Toshiba Satellite Pro C650 (I'm a laptop noob).

It took stupid amounts of time to install Windows, as I could not get the Windows installer disc to correctly partition the SSD.

I couldn't determine if the version of GParted on my Ubuntu 10 disc supported "Advanced Format".
Linux Mint doesn't seem to have a useful GUI tool for disc partitioning (the default one is totally useless).
I would have used GParted, but my external HDD with LM17 + GParted was unavailable (as I was scanning it in an attempt to recover some deleted files).

It seems that the touchpad was interpreting my swipes as double taps (whenever it was most inconvenient for me).
Eventually the double taps resulted in Windows being installed on a tiny partition I had created for Linux.

Just to confirm the info in this thread:
It's impossible to adjust the touchpad settings without installing a driver, despite the fact that the touchpad is running without one at the moment?

win 7 - 64
sensitivity of mouse cursor

By sensitivity, do you mean when the cursor cross over the box, or hovers over the box, the action is taken like one has clicked on enter? Drives me crazy when the mouse rolls over a box and the PC takes that as an approval click. How can I fix this annoying 0problem?
