  2. Adjust Touchpad Sensitivity in Settings

    How to Adjust Touchpad Sensitivity in Windows 10


    If your Windows 10 PC (ex: laptop) has a built-in touchpad, you may need to adjust the touchpad sensitivity for your needs.

    Touchpad sensitivity is how much pressure must be applied on the touchpad before it responds.

    If your pointer is moving or clicking erratically or to easily, decreasing sensitivity may help.

    If you have to press too hard to operate the touchpad or the touchpad does not always respond to your taps, increasing the sensitivity may hay help.

    This tutorial will show you how to adjust the touchpad sensitivity for your account in Windows 10.

    Touchpad sensitivity settings will vary from one device and driver to another, so you may not have some settings available or some settings may be different than in this tutorial.

    If you have something different, then please post screenshots. I'll be happy to include it in the tutorial for others.

    touchpad sensitivity

    Hi Joobster,

    When you mean Touchpad sensitivity, are you referring to the pointer speed of your touchpad? Or are you referring to the touch/pressure sensitivity of your touchpad whenever to press your fingers on your touchpad?

    If you are referring to the pointer speed, you may follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + R on your keyboard.
    • Type "main.cpl" and hit enter.
    • Click Pointer Options.
    • Under Motion, select the pointer speed you wanted for your touchpad.

    Regarding the Touch/pressure sensitivity, then you will need to contact your PC manufacturer to assist you on installing the right drivers for your touchpad.

    Let us know how it goes.
