View Full Version : unwanted mouse pad behaviour

08-18-2013, 11:05 PM
whats the mouse pad setting to not have the pointer <enter> when it hover over a file name, etc?

i'm using the pad now vs a mouse and quite a few times unwanted behaviour such as moving files, del, etc has happened in windows explorer with using the pad. didn't happen with the mouse.

maybe its the double-click setting on synaptic dialog? beats me, i'll move it to "slow". let me know the setting if thats not it.

If necessary, you may want to tell us your notebook model, but normally you can tap on the touchpad once to left-click which can cause problems when it happens accidentally.

If you see a Synaptics tab under your mouse properties, you should be able to disable the left-click tap function there if you don't want to use it.

model= G75
Synaptics driver/app installed.

i'll try the "disable left-click" tap function. my thumb or hand is barely brushing up against it and i suppose 'clicks' something.

thanks, i'll give it a try
