Go to Control Panel, then select Mouse/Touch pad Icon. You will see there the MOUSE POINTER OPTION. Just adjust your desired settings for the mouse and pointer settings.

Gateway the touch pad not function why?


Adjusting the touchpad sensitivity on a Gateway laptop lets you fix and prevent annoying touchpad problems.
Often the touchpad is accidentally brushed while typing, which causes the cursor to move out of place.
Or you may find yourself having to tap too hard or too often on the touchpad to open windows and programs.
These problems can be fixed by simply adjusting the touchpad's sensitivity settings.
Click the "Start" button and double-click "Control Panel."
Double-click "Hardware & Sound" and choose "Mouse" to open the mouse properties box.

Choose the "Device Settings" tab. Highlight "Synaptic Touchpad" in the Devices box by clicking on it. Click the "Settings" button underneath the Devices box.
Choose "Sensitivity" in the properties settings box.
Click "PalmCheck" to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad to accidental brushes against the pad while typing, which causes the cursor to move.
Click and hold the pointer to adjust the setting on the sensitivity scale.

Click "Touch Sensitivity" to adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad to tapping.
Click and hold the pointer to adjust the setting on the sensitivity scale.
A higher rating on the scale means less tapping pressure will be needed.

Click "OK" to save your touchpad settings.

Touchpad dragging


Greetings,
You can refer to a few Mouse settings as mentioned below

  1. Right-click on the desktop and select Personalize > Mouse Pointers . The Mouse Properties settings window will open. Alternately, click Start and type Mouse in the Search field, and select Mouse when it becomes available in the program list. The Mouse Properties settings window will open.
  2. Verify that the Device Settings tab is present in the Mouse Properties window.
  3. If this tab is not present, you will need to obtain the Synaptics TouchPad software.

Touchpad


my laptop uses a Synaptics touchpad. In Control Panel, go to Printers and other hardware, then select mouse. Your touchpad device should be listed in one of the tabs at the top. For bigearlb: click settings, then my menu items list Tapping as one of the settings, and when I open it and on the right side is a check box next to Enable Tapping. Uncheck it and you should be good. For tmbc: Under device settings for your touchpad, click on Disable. that should do it.

Do not check the check box as leaving the touchpad enabled while using an external mouse will not cause any harm.
