    Touchpad confuses cursor movement for a request to scroll (very sensitive scrolling)


    Hello,


    I have a Lenovo G50-45 80E3 running Windows 10. For background, every once in a while, my two-finger scrolling stops working out of the blue and will not respond to toggling off/on in the mouse advanced settings, etc. A restart always fixes this. Recently the two-finger scrolling stopped working as described; it came back when I restarted the computer, but with one unwelcome addition. Currently, the two-finger scrolling is VERY sensitive.


    It will read most of my normal finger movements -- and these are one-finger movements! -- as requests to scroll and will not release the cursor. Instead, it just continues to scroll unless I click and swipe a lot in order to get it to release. Half the time it picks it right back up again, and when scrolling isn't an option (ie on a single-page document) the cursor won't move at all because it's still trying to scroll! It's highly frustrating. (It's also not specific to any program or anything like that; everything is affected.)


    I eventually turned scrolling off all together, bringing me back to square one. I manually updated the drivers using Lenovo's website, have played around in multiple ways with the control panel's "mouse" section (varying pressure sensitivities, different mouse icons, horizontal vs. vertical scrolling, and so on), checked device manager and the settings menu, etc. etc. Nothing seems to fix the problem and make two-finger scrolling work the way it's meant to.


    Any ideas?


    TO RECAP: sudden bizarre scrolling sensitivity refuses to let cursor work like normal, reading even one-finger maneuvers as a request to scroll and sometimes preventing the cursor from moving. Multiple attempts to fix the problem through control panel and driver updates have been unsuccessful.

    :)

    • Do you receive any error message?
    • Have you enabled two finger scrolling?
    I suggest you to follow the methods below:

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to enable two finger scrolling and check. Please follow the steps below:

    1. Press or tap “Windows key + X”, click on "Control Panel." Navigate to "Mouse," under "Hardware and sound".

    2. Select the "Touchpad" tab in the "Mouse" window. This tab will also list the touchpad manufacturer.

    3. Select "Properties," "Settings," "Advanced".

    4. Click the box next to "Enable scrolling" if this option is available.

    5. Click the arrow to the right of "Scrolling" to open the scrolling list and select two-finger scrolling to access the specific features.

    6. Click to enable for two-finger scrolling feature, then select "Adjust scrolling region" or the similar option, if available.

    7. Drag the scrolling region to cover a larger portion of the touchpad if you want to ensure you can scroll easily.

    8. Click "Ok" to apply any changes and close the options windows. Keep clicking "Ok" until all of the windows with this option are closed.

    9. Restart your computer if prompted. Your scrolling feature should be enabled.
