X1 Extreme trackpoint left click button.

Q: X1 Extreme trackpoint left click button.

The left click above the track pad doesn't seem to properly register my click unless I press hard or at a certain spot or angle. Is this something that can be fixed without an RMA? Where is the closest repair centre in Toronto?

Got a T440s Touch. Trackpad looks fine but the left side is slightly tilted compared to the right. Clicking the buttons at the bottom work and the right TrackPoint button at the top of the tochpad works, as does the centre scroll button, but the left one doesn't. The left button doesn't seem to click - can this be fixed easily? Have tried playing around with drivers, blowing compressed air into the trackpad, updating BIOS, enabling/disabling TrackPoint in the BIOS but all to no avail. Any ideas? If the worst comes to the worst I have an L540 - can I swap the trackpads over?

I have upgraded my old T410i with some extra RAM and an SSD. The system works great and fast. There is one problem. I have noticed that although my trackpoint and right and middle button (above trackpad) work like the should the left button (above trackpad) doesn't. I thought this has to work like the left mouse button or the left button under the trackpad but it doesn't. I have the latest bios version 1.45 installed and the latest drivers. I have also tried to detach the keyboard and attached it again. After that I tried to disable the trackpoint in the bios and enable it again. This doesn't help either. Maybe it is a defective key because all the other functions and keys do work. Is there something overlook?

I've had this problem before and had a replacement, but in the replaced machine the problem came back. Especially when pressing the button all the way on the left side it is sometimes unresponsive even though it makes a clicking noise. But sometimes it works, so maybe it is caused by dust? Is anyone else having this problem?

I have a user that has a 2nd Generation X1 Carbon (the type with virtual buttons on the Synaptics TrackPoint/TrackPad.   The user is complaining that a context sensitivie menu (of the type that a right click would initiate) intermittently is shown when she left clicks.  She normaly uses the TrackPad but does use the TrackPoint on ocassion.  Here's what I've done so far: 1) I initially thought it was the TrackPad and had Lenovo Support replace it.  The problem was reduced but is still occurs. 2) I've installed current UltraNav drivers and updated all other drivers to current levels.  The WIndows 10 is also updated to current patches.  I would try setting the UltraNave to "Click Anywhere" but that disables the TrackPoint feature that is ocassionally used.  Has anyone seen this happen before and know a fix for this?

I find my mouse click often not registering and I need to click multiple times for the action to execute.This isn't a matter of lag because I tried waiting a while and the action never executes unless if I click it multiple times.This is really frustrating. My old T420s never had this issue.  It might be worth mentioning that I also have a problem with the trackpoint scrolling which if I scroll in the vertical direction, it first registers as a horizontal scroll icon and doesn't change to vertical unless if I press down hard and the page ends up jumping from the pressure. I can't gradually scroll. Several other people mentioned this issue in a separate thread but no fix was ever proposed.  I'm wondering if the two are related in that they could be some I/O communication issue between the trackpoint and some controller.

Currently my TrackPoint middle button does scrolling as desired but when I release it, it pops up a right-click menu.  I can't figure out how to turn off the right-click functionality.  Any ideas? I believe I have fully explored the entire Mouse properties dialog from Control Panel, including the advanced one with the special TrackPoint options.  I tried any option that looked even vaguely related, and nothing helped. Thanks in advance!

Even while typing the subject line of this thread, I had to retype it a couple of times as the left button triggered unknown clicks on the web page loading another while my left thumb unintentionally and inevitably rested on it. Happening quite frequently with random cliks being registered. Adjusting sensitivity of the trackpoint or touchpad does not have any effect. I don't see any other settings. Did anyone ever face this? Is there perhaps a firmware/software approach to fix such things? I jut bought this Yoga in November, did not start to really use it since a few days ago and is why I just noticed this way after the return period, and I don't want to go to the hassle of warranty claim if there's a software workaround.

Man this feels weird. I'm usually the one giving help, not asking for it lol.

Computer:

HP Pavilion dv7
Win7 Professional x64

This problem started after I left my computer on sleep for a couple hours. When I woke it up, the touchpad taps and left mouse button clicks brought up the right-click context menu and nothing on the taskbar responded to the cursor hovering over it. Also for some reason pressing the Windows key on the keyboard wouldn't bring up the Start menu. The only way I've found to correct this is to plug in a USB mouse and press the right MB on it. I also was able to fix it one time by uninstalling the Synaptics drivers and letting Windows restart and find the mouse, but after trying to reinstall the Synaptics drivers then uninstalling them again after the problem reappeared this method no longer works. In either case left click functionality is restored but there is no right click functionality period on the touchpad/buttons. However the USB mouse that I plug in works normally. Also after left click is restored, everything on the taskbar and elsewhere responds as it should with the exception of not being able to right click on anything (which sucks in W7). I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Synaptics drivers to see if that would fix it but after reinstalling them and restarting, the problem came back. Another thing I've noticed is that even with the Synaptics drivers installed the vertical scroll area doesn't respond.... Read more

Hi Lenovo, Currently the Trackpoint's middle button can only do either scrolling or middle mouse button click in Windows. This behavior can be set in lenovo vantage or mouse settings. Could you provide option to enable both scrolling and middle mouse click functions at same time? In linux this is already supported out of the box for a long time. The only workaround in windows is by using third party software called TPMiddle, but this software only works with Synaptics trackpoint, it doesn't work with Elan or ALPS trackpoint.

I just received my X1 Carbon and am noticing something unusual about the left thumb mouse button (is that what it's called?)  Anyways I find myself often hitting the far-right edge of the left-button (practically touching the middle thumb button) and I'm finding that it does not register.  Similarly if I hit the far-left edge of that button, it doesn't register either... my thumb needs to depress the center of that button in order for it to work.  This issue doesn't happen with the right-button... I can hit the far-left and far-right edge of that and it will work fine. There is something weird about the left thumb button though... it is definitely higher in height than the right thumb button.  Seems like a fit & finish issue. Does anyone else have this problem? 

A:X1 carbon - left thumb click button

I found the following information for the X1 Carbon User Guide, I hope it is helpful! I believe the Left Click button is what you are referring to when you said the Left thumb mouse button, close enough; I knew what you were referring to and that's all that really matters

Using the TrackPoint pointing device
The TrackPoint pointing device consists of a pointing stick 1 on the keyboard and three click buttons at the bottom of the keyboard. To move the pointer 5 on the screen, you apply pressure to the nonslip cap on the pointing stick in any direction parallel to the keyboard; the pointing stick itself does not move. The speed at which the pointer moves depends on the pressure you apply to the pointing stick. The functions of the left 4 and right 2 click buttons correspond to those of the left and right mouse buttons on a conventional mouse. The TrackPoint center button 3 called the scroll bar, enables you to scroll Web pages or documents in any direction with no need to use the graphic scroll bars on the side of the window.
 
Try custominzing the settings to see if makes a difference for the for clicking the Left click button.
You can customize the TrackPoint pointing device and its buttons as follows:
? Switch the functions of the left and right buttons.
? Change the sensitivity of the TrackPoint pointing device.
? Enable the Press-to-Select function.
? Enable the TrackPoint Scrolling Tips.

I have a brand-new EliteBook 840 running Windows 10. The left touchpad button sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. It's like this: If I click a second time (or a third time) with the left button, without having moved the cursor (not double click, but two separated clicks), then the computer doesn't respond to the click. If I click by tapping on the touchpad area (instead of pressing the button) then everything is fine. But I don't like tapping! If I click with an external mouse connected via USB then everything is fine. If I move the cursor and then click, then it works. The problem is very annoying because each time the computer doesn't respond to the clicks, I have to move the cursor and then click again.

The left click button on the touchpad of my Acer Aspire One Netbook recently stopped working properly. It won't let me click ( except sometimes after pressing the button repeatedly), and when it does, it highlights everything on the page and drags the links I try to click. I can't get it out of drag mode, and trying to use the scroll bar is hell because it won't stop scrolling. I think the left click button is stuck.

I've had the computer for three years, and up until a few weeks ago, I'd never had this problem. I don't want to send it back to Acer or buy any new parts. Is there any solution to this problem?

Dell Inspiron 17R 5737: A few months ago the left click button of the touchpad got deflated from bottom left edge and the click got sticky, if I clicked on right top edge, it worked sometimes but mostly left click stayed pressed.
I opened the laptop and found that the small plastic attached to the button, which inflates it back is broken. I tried to fix it using glue but it didn't work. As it was part of the whole Palmrest thus I ordered a new palmrest. After receiving the new palmrest, I detached the buttons circuit and touchpad circuit from the old palmrest and attached it to the new palmrest.
Strangely now, the left click button is partially sticky, if I click on the left half of the button it sticks, if I click on the right half of the button it works properly 90% of the time. The button is no more deflated and it inflates and deflates properly on clicking, there is nothing broken in the new palmrest, the clicking sound is fine, there is just 1 button for left click then how it is working differently for left half and right half, that I am not able to understand.
Next step can be to order new buttons circuit but I am not sure if this will fix the problem.
This is my work laptop thus it is effecting my work and time quite badly, any help will be highly appreciated.

Win10 V.1511 and V.1607.
Example TaskBar Button - File Explorer

If you open an instance of File Explorer, then click the task bar button again, File explorer window minimizes. If you right click, a popup opens with Pinned, Frequent, and File Explorer. If you click on File Explorer, another instance of Explorer will open.

If you open an instance of File Explorer and then, hold down the "Shift" key and left click the File Explorer TaskBar button again, another instance of file explorer will open.

This works with most any application that can run in multiple instances. At some time in the past (i.e. probably Win7 era) I found a way to make individual Task bar buttons work as if the shift key was pressed (i.e. each Left Click would always open another instance of the app). After upgrading to Win10 and subsequently after loading the anniversary updates, I managed to lose that function. Since I've slept once or twice since setting this up, I no longer remember how I did it.

So to my question, Does anyone know of a setting or registry hack that will make a taskbar button function as if the shift key is pressed when it is left clicked?

I got my X1 Extreme sealed from my local distributors and I started it, applied all Windows updates and installed everything in Lenovo System UpdateBut the TrackPoint and its left/right mouse buttons don't work at all. I also don't have any options for customizing trackpoint or trackpad beyond windows' basic onesI noticed there are two versions of Symantec UltraNav - one for Windows 10 1803 and one for older versions.I installed the older version, and now I have the trackpoint/trackpad options, but trackpoint is grayed out, while trackpad can be edited. Reinstalling the 1803 (latest Win) drivers again causes the options for trackpoint/pad to disappearI checked bios and tried disabling and enabling all 4 combinations of trackpoint/trackpad, but it did not help.Any ideas what that might be? Since latest Synaptec UltraNav drivers don't display additional options in Mouse Options, I guess it's because they don't install properly (trying to manually click the two apps in C:\Drivers\UltraNav\XXX gives me an error -"Either you need a new certificate installed for this app package, or you need a new app package with trusted certificates."and it fails to install - though the official installer says it installed correctly).So it points to the latest X1 Extreme Symantec drivers being faulty

I recently purchased an X1 Extreme Gen 2, and I noticed that the TrackPoint is very choppy compared to an X1 Carbon Gen 7 I also recently purchased. The touchpad is smooth and operational, but the mouse movement using the TrackPoint is imprecise and not smooth. I removed the red cap from both laptops, and noticed that the two laptops' physical pointing sticks are different. I also noticed that the X1 Extreme has the "Synaptics Pointing Device" driver, while the X1 Carbon has the "ELAN TrackPoint Device" driver (although it is probably supposed to be like that). Anyone else experienced this problem or have a solution?Thanks!

Once I noticed when the trackpoint stopped working, it was actually disabled on the system somehow. Anyways I would love to fix this issue on my own because I bet Tech Support wont know about this issue and throw me in circles. I feel as though this wouldnt be happening on a Stock Brand new Laptop, so it must be one of the Windows Updates messing with it. Far as Specs it is a i7-8850h, 64mb Ram, 1 TB ssd, 4k Screen, Lets see if someone can help me =)

I've done some more general testing on this and 2 things I've noticed in the past few days:
 
1) When I leave my X1E lid CLOSED and leave World Community Grid Running (as is normal for me it drives the GPU and CPU to high workloads), in the AM the machine is very warm on and around the TPoint as well as the bottom of the machine beneath where the TP is positioned.  I have the machine sitting on a solid surface so not to impede normal air flow under the unit.  The ambient temp is about 75 degrees F.   For at least the first 30+ minutes the trackpoint is AWFUL on recalibrating itself.  It will just slide and slide across the screen.  
 
2) I've also noticed that when I'm resting my hands "heavily" on the X1E "palm" areas near / around the Touchpad, I noticed the cursor drift a few times on its own...expecially when I'm going from no hands on keyboard to full hands on keyboard.   It seems to do this more when it's very warm, say after #1 has been running all night.  
 
Next I'm going to try to leaving the setup running with the screen OPEN so the keyboard and trackpoint stay cooler.  
 
My gut says we may be onto something that the thiness and thermals are inpacting the TP stress sensors which makes like a good theory in my mind.   It would be great if some others would start watching for similar behaviors.  I have a IR thermometer around here somewhere I'll try to find it.&n...

A:X1 Extreme 20MF X1E1 - Trackpoint Drifting

Hi, Finally got back to measuring the keyboard/TP temps with my Fluke IR Thermometer after leaving the system ON and the lid closed.
 
Yes, I and many others continue having lots of trackpoint drift issues.  I have a 6 month old X1E (20MF Model) with all the latest FW/BIOS and Drivers installed from Lenovo's site.  It's so bad, I'm considering selling the machine and trying another one.  It's really marring what is otherwise a great machine, keyboard and Thinkpad brand. 
 
With the lid closed at night, the thermals are quite, quite high.  I still think this MAY be related to the drift.  I've also noticed that when I use the TP to scroll the bars by depressing the right mouse button and moving the cursor, the TP SEEMS to want to recalibrate more often and much more frequently.  I also have my TP set to 2 in the Windows 10 Mouse sensitivity settings b/c when I had it at 10 (most sensitive, which is how I've used every TP for the past many years, very light touch) it seems to recalibrate even MORE often.

Hi, My Trackpointer completely stops working afer the computer is turned on for about 20 minutes. The first 20-30 minutes it functions fine then it suddenly freezs and I have to reboot to get it working again. My Trackpad and any connected mouse works fine without any issues, it's only the pointer that freezes. All my drivers, Bios and Windows (10 Pro 64) are up to date. I have also tried uninstalling the device and reinstalling...nothing...still the same issue. Does anybody have the same problem and is there a solution? My Config is 4k Touch, 64GB RAM, 1Tb+ 512 SSD, Intel vpro  8750 Processor. Thanks.

I was recently given a brand new Thinkpad X1 Extreme. The problem is that the cursor is moving diagonally from the bottom left to the upper right corners  (or parallel lines of this one) while I am typing. The movement is clearly activated when I press keys around the trackpoint (G, H, B) and especially H. The cursos most of the times will stop moving if I press again H.  I need to solve this: 1. I tried TouchFreeze but this deactivates only the touchpad when typing.  2. Is it possible to just deactivate the red trackpoint without deactivating the two physical buttons? I need these buttons. 3. Is there some other software solution? I would appreciate any help.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L4550-S5976 running under Windows 7. When I start it up (and if I catch it at the right time), the touchpad buttons work fine for a few minutes. After the machine completely boots, the touchpad button problems start - the left button performs as the right button and the right button does nothing.

On a lark, I plugged in a USB mouse and rebooted. When I do that, the mouse works fine AND the touchpad buttons work properly. Carrying around a mouse isn't always convenient so I'd like to have the machine work as expected.

I tried updating the touchpad drivers - that did not fix the problem. I even reinstalled Windows 7 on the machine - that did not fix the problem either.

Any ideas what I could do next to fix this problem?

Thanks, Brian
 

A:Touchpad Left button does Right Button actions and Right Button does nothing

try in safe mode, that may work. if it does, remove programs that run on startup one by one until you find the one causing the issue

Try cleaning the whole touchpad, perhaps it may require recalibration. I previously had issues with the touchpad and removed the additional drivers that came with it
