    Action Center opens at every second click & other touchpad problems


    Hello Action Center opens at every second click & other touchpad problems :)

    My primary problem is that the Action Center opens at every second click. I think the problem migth be with some touchpad settings, but I haven't been able to identify them.

    The touchpad started acting all weird all of a sudden. I have tried to restart the pc of course. That didn't help. I also ran a virus check, but at least nothing was identified. I have also tried to update the touchpad driver with no improvement.

    Besides the Action Center appearing all the time, the touchpad stopped responding to taps (the way I usually click).
    I was able to borrow an external mouse. I had no problems with the mouse, but the problems remained with the touchpad. After disabling the touchpad and using the mouse for a while, the problems disappeared. However, there was still some weird behavior with the touchpad (some settings had changed, for example ClickLock had been turned on). The touchpad does not work the way the settings indicate in Settings > Devices > Mouse and touchpad > Additional mouse options > (Dell Touchpad >) Click to change DellTouchpad Settings.

    Now the problems from before borrowing the mouse have reappeared, and I can't get access to a mouse at the moment.

    My pc is a Dell XPS 13.

    Any advice will be much appreciated Action Center opens at every second click & other touchpad problems :)

    :)

  2. Left Click Causes Action Center to Open

    After upgrading to Windows 10, every time I left-click with my touchpad the action center pops open, or if it is already open it closes. The click actually works and brings focus to the area that I clicked on, but I then have to click again to close the
    action center and continue what I was doing. This also makes the double-click unusable as the focus changes every time I click.

    Fortunately I have a touch screen laptop, and tapping on the touchscreen does not cause the action center to popup, so I at least have that option. I've seen a couple of posts about updating/reinstalling the mousepad driver software, but that has not fixed
    the problem.

    Does anyone no what I can do to stop the action center from popping open? I have an HP Envy TouchSmart.

  3. Touchpad installation

    I was recently experiencing a problem where every time i clicked anything on my laptop, the notification action center would pop up. To fix it I uninstalled my Dell Touchpad driver and restarted my laptop. The action center problem was fixed but now i can't
    reinstall the touchpad driver. It says it downloaded but when i go to my settings to activate it, it is nowhere to be found and it isnt on my list of apps and features. Please help
