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.

Touchpad too sensitive


In the Windows Control Panel, select 'Mouse'. It allows you to change the speed at which the mouse responds to the touchpad. Lower the setting until the touchpad has the desired sensitivity.

My touchpad has lost sensitivity. How do I fix it?I have to use the right.left bars underneath once I make a selection.


It seems that the sensitivity for the touchpad has dipped. Hoping that you might be using Synaptic's touchpad.
See if this helps..
1.. Click Start then click Control Panel.

2.. Click Printers and Other Hardware then click Mouse.

3.. Select the Device Settings tab.

4.. Highlight Synaptics TouchPad in the list and click the Settings
button.

5.. Click the plus sign next to Sensitivity to change the sensitivity settings of the touchpad.

If you are not getting any positive result from changing the settings, you can uninstall and re-install the drivers for the same and then check it once again. If all fails, this leads to the result that the touchpad is itself damaged and you need to replace it.
Cheers!

How do I manage the mouse pad sensativity on my VIAO notebok computer


Hi,
You should be able to manage the touchpad (mouse pad) settings by going in to control panel --> Touchpad.(or "Dell Touchpad"). There you would find the touchpad settings where you could adjust the sensitivity for the touchpad.
Please let me know if you face issues finding the settings.
Thanks.

Touch pad too sensitive, it always messes me up when I'm typing


You could try adjust the touchpad settings. Sometimes there is a touchpad icon in the taskbar that you can right click on to adjust the properties. You can also disable the pad and use a USB mouse instead.

Touchpad too sensitive


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

Acer aspire touchpad over sensitive


Hi,
Your laptop should have software pre-installed for your touchpad. This should probably be in the Control Panel. Once you find the software there should be options to change the sensitivity. Hope I helped.
