How to disable the synaptic feature without effecting the mouse pad

I have access to the synapits and the mouse pad in the control panel. I'm afraid to disable it for fear of losing my mouse pad. I just want to get rid of the synapitic feature. Is there a way?

Hello posea. Welcome to the Forum.

I do not understand what you mean by "Synaptics Feature". Could you please describe the exact behavior/feature?

I bet you are talking about the "tap-to-click" feature which I personally hate with a passion. Is that the one?

Which laptop are we talking about?

It helps enormously if you post your full system specs as without them it's hard to point you in the right direction.

This extremely irritating Windows 'help' is discribed as such: At anytime, if I move the mouse directly vertical (only), three vertical boxes appear along with an arrow. If/when you touch the mouse the screen moves up or down (whichever it feels like doing). The only way to get rid of this "feature" is by moving the cursor horizontally, either left or right.
Hope this helps,

Library feature....I hate to disable?
Every time I save a document, video, etc. it automatically places it in the Library. Does MS think I'm so dumb I need this stuff saved in two different locations? Not to mention the space it eats/wastes. I can I disable this feature?
