  1. Left Click & double tap not working in windows 10!


    Hello, I use a HP laptop & since the last few days I am not able to open any files or click on something since the left (main) key & double tap on the mouse pad are not working! Although I am able to move the cursor/pointer over the touch pad & the right click is working fine as well! I searched the entire internet & nothing seem to work! Could anyone help me please ? The last thing I remember doing that might have caused this problem (earlier everything was working fine but sometimes touchpad used to get stuck) is hitting the fn+f5 button that I read in this thread Touchpad not working for windows 10. - Page 3 - Windows 10 Forums Thanks!

    :)

  2. N800 Mouse-over functionality?

    bump.

    The single tap does seem to activate the mouse-over, but it also activates a left-click which defeats the purpose of the mouse-over.

    Is there someway to change the default stylus functions: single-tap, tap-and-hold, or double-tap?

    If Single-tap, send a mouse-over

    If tap-and-hold, send a right-click

    If double tap, send a left-click

    That was solve my problems I think.

    Hi, can you check you don't have Clicklock on? (see Control Panel, Mouse). How does a wired mouse behave?

    Look in Device Manager and check when your touchpad driver was last updated. Check it's not the date your problem started.

  5. Hello, don't have a wired mouse with me, but a wireless is working absolutely fine! And how do I check when was the driver last updated? Have attached the SS..Problem started around 8-10 days back!

    .. it's the Events tab you need- sorry, should have said..

    Ok, so it's a touchpad issue. That's useful clarification.

    Check the Synaptics 'Device Settings' tab, Tapping, and check Tapping is enabled. (Or equiv)
    Also check it's enabled (which presumably it is) - just noting your hotkey above.

    (Mine shows disabled if I use the function key to disable it- surprise..*Smile)

  7. Thanks, attaching the SS. Not able to find the Tapping tab though! Although everything important is enabled here.

    Touchpads have always been a problem. I use a Logitech Trackball now for my laptop. Helps for not getting finger cramps.

    Actually it is better for you. Carpal Tunnel and joint problems come with using a touchpad all of the time.

    The GUI does vary. No idea why.
    Note you've had a touchpad driver update very recently. You could try rolling it back. Disconnect your internet to prevent update while trying it.

    Humans should be re-engineered to be able to use touchpads.

    (Memories of androids extending digits with compatible interfaces).
    I once tried a program that moved the cursor following head movement. Stupid idea... (trying it, + the software).

    Incorrect. Touchpads have always been the worst thing ever designed. Not only bad for your hand, arm, wrist and shoulder. Also never work half of the time.

    I use a wrist rest that sits on the arm of my couch and use the trackball a lot better then I could with a mouse.

    I had to chabge, because I have shoulder issues.

    Actually you just gave to go in and turn off to not let Windows update drivers.

    = I agree with you... i.e. it's a sardonic comment.
    Compare 'Touchpads need to be re-engineered to match humans'
    Ever tried using one with wet fingers? + selecting a precise region of text can be a real pain.
    That said I do use them sometimes.

    (Sorry ayeitsashish- nothing to do with your post!)
