  1. Touchpad Buttons/Taps do not work when a key is pressed


    So, I used to have the cursor not working when a key is pressed but I fixed that problem by registry in another form.
    But then I am having that the taps/buttons are not working. I need it for gaming. Is there any way to fix this problem? It is annoying.

    I have a Lenovo G50-80 laptop and I'm using Windows 10 Pro, my touchpad drivers/Windows 10 is up to date, my touchpad driver is Synaptics Pointing Device.

    :)

    Lenovo T400 touchpad tapping and buttons fail

    I recently made a mistake. I loaded the latest Synaptic touchpad to this T400 attempting to fix 'zoom' capability. Only afterwards I noticed T400 is not on the approved list. So I rolled back (also redownloaded, also reapplied old driver). The current situation is the cursor works fine but tapping and buttons do not work. Also note that USB mouse via HID compliant driver works fine.

    I don't think it is related to the Windows version (currently on 1903) since I booted from Kyhi's 1703 rescue disk and the problem persists. What suggestions can this forum provide?

    Thanks in advance

    Touchpad tap configured as "mouse back button" not working in Explorer

    I have a ThinkPad T480 laptop, using a Synaptics touchpad. I use the built-in Windows 10 touchpad settings to configure the tap functionality.

    I configured the touchpad to function as a "mouse back button" when I tap it with three fingers. It works fine in Firefox but it does not work at all in Windows Explorer (i.e., browsing files on my computer.)

    Touch pad scrolling works fine, even in Windows Explorer.

    Interestingly, I can get it to work as long as Explorer isn't focused. So, for example, if I click an empty part of the taskbar and then put the cursor over an Explorer window - without clicking it - then I do a three-finger tap, Explorer successfully goes back.

    One other interesting observation: if I set three-finger tap to something else (say, Action Center), it does work in Explorer. This suggests that the problem is not Explorer failing to recognize any taps - just SPECIFICALLY back-button tap functionality.

    Also, I tried setting two- and four-finger taps as mouse back button functionality but it doesn't work for those either, meaning the problem is not specific to three-finger taps.

    Any ideas?
