  1. Windows 10 Asus touchpad - Can't open folders/icons using double tap


    Hello guys, this is my first ever post on this forum. Thank you very much for taking your time to support me.

    So I've been using this Asus K401L with Windows 10 installed for over 3 weeks and it's been working perfectly. Yesterday, my touchpad started to act strange and I was unable to double tap to open folders/icons. It is very strange because, I can double tap and move the touchpad and select all, and even single tap works. It's just that, I can't double tap and open folders. I plugged in my external mouse and I had no issues.
    I tried repairing Asus Smart gestures, playing around with mouse properties, but nothing seems to work and I still can't open anything that requires double tap. I can even double tap on an icon and drag in anywhere using touchpad. Double tap to launch/open isn't working and that's the problem.

    NOTE: My laptop doesn't have Elan Settings in mouse options.

    Things I did yesterday : Using Eclipse, Changed "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\System Settings" and changed what closing the lid does to "nothing" and after some time I reverted it back to "sleep" and I installed COD Ghosts, which took almost 2 hours to archive.

    Hope you guys will help me to fix this issues. Thank you very much *Smile

    :)

  2. Triple touchpad tap doesn't work

    I have asus N552VW laptop, it has win10 installed. I can't use triple touchpad tap to e.g. select the whole textbox text. It simply ignores triple taps, I can double tap to select word but triple click
    does nothing inside textbox on any site/app. I have the latest driver installed (according to Win10 check). Does anybody know if it's win 10 feature/asus feature/ bug?

    How to switch single tap for a single click to a double tap for a single click???

    Right - there is a difference between single tap and single click and double tap and double click

    when i "single tap" on the touchpad - i tap it (rather than click the pad down) and that would perform the task of a single click - i find this function very annoying as it makes me inadvertently open folders and files i am not looking to open - so i went
    to touchpad settings and turned off the "single tap to single click" function

    I would, however, like to change this so a double TAP performs the function of a single click. Can a Dell XPS with windows 10 do this or is apple the only company to offer a useful function like this?

    thanks

    Windows 10 Asus touchpad - Can't open folders/icons using double tap

    Hey just saw your post! If you're still having issues, go to the windows mouse settings via start -> control panel -> mouse, and lower the slider on the double click speed setting. I have mine set to around 3/5th and works absolutely fine for me!

    Had the same issue and thought I'd google it before taking a look myself! Found your post but saw no response. Had a quick fiddle around, solved the issue and thought the polite thing to do would be to let you know! *Smile
