How to reduce the sensitivity of a laptop touchpad running windows 8


A touchpad is simply a mouse. Type "mouse" in the search box to bring up the mouse settings. The adjustment mouse and touchpad should be there. Another way is to go to "control panel" and find mouse there to change the settings. It may read "input devices".

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.

My acer aspire 5742Z touchpad is too sensitive or I don't really know how to use it. Every time I touch it something stupid happens on screen. Now it has turned my screen dispay side on and I have to use...


Definitely your touchpad is TOO SENSITIVE!
To modify the sensitivity just go
START > CONTROL PANEL > MOUSE/TOUCHPAD and adjust there the sensitivity by dragging the cursor to the LEFT until it reaches the middle.
In PROPERTIES just re-invert the functions of your touchpad to get rid of the mixed axes.

I am using T400 with XP Pro. while typing Touch pad is so sensitive that it jumps the cursor from writing one line to other. End up that you need to type all the items again and again. is there any way...


Hi,

Try this first

To do this, open Mouse Properties within the Control Panel, where on the Ultra Nav-Tab you find a button for touchpad settings. Click on this button and another window will open which has a tab for adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad. Moving the slider to the left (towards "higher" ) greatly improved my experience with the touchpad.

For me, setting it to the second highest "line" (i.e. second line from the left) works best, but you may be able to set it even higher as I have not yet encountered any negative effects when doing so.

I would be glad if some of you could try to verify my findings, I am very much looking forward to your experiences.

Step 2
Click on the link below and follow the instructions
Touchpad Sensitivity

Also try this step below if above steps does not solve

  • Right-click on 'My Computer' and then select 'Properties' in the context menu. This opens 'System Properties' dialog box.
  • Click on the 'Hardware' tab and then on the 'Device Manager'. Here you will ?nd an entry titled 'Mice and other pointing devices' in the 'Device Manager' window. When you double-click on this entry, it shows the touchpad as a PS/2 Compatible mouse.
  • Right-click on this entry to go to the properties of the touchpad, select 'Advanced Settings', and then click on 'Sample Rate'. You can reduce the degree of sensitivity here.
  • Follow this tip and you can solve the 'jumping cursor' problem easily.
Thank you for contacting FixYa

Test with external keyboard and mouse to see whether the touchpad is guilty.Even then, if seems so, try some live linux distribution (boot from CD) to eliminate any software-related issues.

Cursor arbitrarly jumps to wherever it may be sitting on the screen. makes typing very difficult


This is an issue with many laptop users because the touchpad is so sensitive that while typing the cursor can be moved when the hand comes into slight contact with the touchpad. You can go into the properties of the touchpad and try reducing the sensitivity and see if that helps or disable the touchpad in the device manager and use a usb mouse.

Touchpad too sensitive


You should find the settings are either under the mouse settings, or under the touchpad's own controls, in Control Panel.

My touchpad is too sensitive


1. Go to the "Control Panel" and double click on the "Mouse" item.
2. Go through the tabs in the "Mouse Properties" window & find the tab where you can set up your touchpad. This differs from laptop to another since it is based on the touchpad's drivers.
3. On that tab, find the "Sensitivity" setting. Try changing this setting to lower the sensitivity of the touch pad to the degree you find acceptable.
4. Click "Apply" to apply the changes, then close the "Mouse Properties" window.

Sensitive touch pad


Hi, click on start and control panel. go to mouse properties. Try to look for a tab that says either touch or touchpad. you can change the sensitivity settings there. however if this doesnt work, this could only mean that this is a physical problem with the toucpad. try to apply pressure on the outer side of the touchpad. if it moves, you're gonna need a replacement palmrest.
