Question about Acer Computers & Internet

When using my touch pad on my Acer Aspire laptop, i can usually just tap it to click on icons. But i accidentally changed some settings which means I have to click the touch pad button in order to click on icons. How can I find the settings to change it back to how it was before?

    Jumping letters on acer laptop when I type

    You need to disable the touch pad while typing. During typing your palm can accidentally touch the touch pad causing the cursor to 'jump' randomly resulting in the problem.

    You have not mentioned the model but on Acer laptops there's a key in the upper row with a 'pad and finger' figure on it. If the figure is in blue, press Fn together with the figure key to disable the touch pad and then again to enable it.
