I am not sure if you're asking about how to change the settings to make a single tap on the touchpad function like double click. You can go to control panel>mice or touchpad.

If you're just asking how to do double click on the touchpad, by default, it's set to tapping the touchpad twice. You can change change the speed settings in control panel too.

Mousepad on laptop too sensitive, jumps and opens links all the time


Hi I also have OS Vista, try this:-
go to the bottom left corner of the screen to the windows button and single click it, move the cursor to "control panel", leave it there and a whole new list of stuff will appear, move the cursor to "personalization" and click it once. This will open a box on the screen. Single click on "mouse pointers", this will open another smaller box with 8 tabs inside. You can click on any of these tabs and adjust your mouse actions to your own preferences, eg; how the pointer looks, how fast you double click, how fast the pointer moves on the screen, anything you like :)
Once you have made all your adjustments, click "apply" in the bottom right corner of the box and this will save the changes you've made.
I hope this helps.

Double click on mouse not workin


Does single click work? if so, the problem is the amount of time between the first click and second click, if the delay is too long, the computer will only register it as 2 single clicks.

Double click settings are change in control panel > mouse

Cursor jumps all over the place. My husband is ready to throw the computer away.


See if you are using Enhance pointer precision,if so try and turn it off. Click Start, click Run, type control mouse, and then click OK. Click the Pointer Options tab, click to clear the "Enhance pointer precision" check box,click Apply and OK. If you are using a wireless mouse try changing the battery.You can also go to the mouse control in the control panel.Uncheck the options to "automatically move pointer to default button". Also check the sesitivity of your touch pad , if it set to a high sensitivity and you barely touch it , it could register as a double click.

My laptop is Hp TouchSmart tx2,the problm is :-The pointer moves unwnted icon it click by it self.


The problem is very simple. The sensitivity of the mouse pad is too high in your laptop i guess. Try adjusting the sensitivity of the mouse. Go to control panel-> mouse options->mouse sensitivity. Try changing the double clicking speed, mouse sensitivity etc and check your mouse operation now.

When typing an email the keys skip back to the


When I have seen this happen, the touch pad was set overly sensitive. When you are typing, your palm may be moving the cursor. If this happens at other times, then this can be corrected in the control panel. Go there and click on touch pad. It will have settings to set the sensitivity for the mouse pad, speed, double click/single, etc. You can change the settings to be more suited to your hands.

FYI: Older laptops were more susceptible to touchpad errors and I have even seen the area on either side of the touchpad to cause the mouse cursor to move and jump.

Good Luck

I've had the acer one for 2 weeks. While using it today, the single and double click functions of the touchpad stopped working. The touchpad still moves the arrow around the screen and the left and right...


Hello cskpuels,

It sounds like the touchpad is working ok but probably needs some setting(s) adjusted. The touchpad settings can be accessed through the windows control panel. But before going to the control panel it's useful to review the touchpad basics for single and double clicking. They are as follows:
•Tap once on the main touchpad for single click.
•Tap twice for double click.
•The lighter the touch, the better the response.
•Tapping harder will not increase the touchpad's responsiveness.

•Opening the Control Panel
The Windows Control Panel can be opened by:
Selecting *Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista)
- OR -
Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)
*The Enter key may be used on the keyboard in place of touchpad clicking*

In the Control Panel, do the following:
•Select Mouse [Enter] (Brings up the touchpad properties sheet)
•Look at the Buttons tab in the touchpad properties sheet.
•Adjust the settings and test the touchpad until you get the response you desire.

Have a great day,
