    Can't move cursor on touchpad while typing, please help


    Hi, I recently received a new Lenovo laptop, and I've noticed I can't move the cursor at all while holding down any key. This is really irritating, especially as a gamer, so could somebody please help, thanks.

    (I'm running on Windows 10)
    My touchpad is a Synaptics TouchPad V8.1 on PS/2 Port

    I've also looked at other posts similar to this one, and I've tried to change my Palm Tracking but I can't edit it at all

    Touchpad: elminating tap-to-click

    I still really need help with this problem. Even the lightest brush against the touchpad results in switching windows, or switching lines while I'm in the process of typing. It's becoming a major problem for when I tutor online (via typing).

    I've tried reducing the sensitivity of the touchpad, but although that makes it harder to use the touchpad to move the cursor around, it doesn't help at all with preventing unintended clicks.

    It's a constant problem, and a serious one. Please help.

  3. Slider greyed in PalmCheck setting

    As long as the Synaptics touchpad is enabled, you should be able to use the touchpad and keyboard at the same time. Changing the sensibility helps avoid moving the mouse cursor accidentally while typing.

    Should you need further assistance, feel free to post your query anytime.

  4. Can't move cursor on touchpad while typing, please help

    Welcome to the TenForums.

    I think you will find the V8.1 is your firmware. I have older firmware but a very recent driver, V19. I have more tabs and options and I would think your device, being newer should be better. I can move touchpad with select keys depressed.

    If you go into your device manager and look at driver I think, and I could be wrong, that you will see a different version number. With this in hand you can see if Lenovo has a newer driver or if Synaptics has a new driver. Watch compatibility, lots of different touchpads. Before updating driver I recommend you create a restore point and maybe even a image using Macrium Reflect. Always good to be able to reverse.
