Disable/configure tapping on a touchpad without Synaptics software?

Q: Disable/configure tapping on a touchpad without Synaptics software?

Is it possible to configure a synaptics touch pad settings such as sensitivity, tapping, and type lock settings without the synaptics software?

When I upgraded my laptop to Vista, my touch pad became erratic randomly clicking both left and right buttons as well as being unresponsive and/or jumping to random locations. I discovered that the issue was caused by the synaptics software. When I uninstalled the software part of the driver, the touchpad worked fine, but I can't configure it. I've tried updating to the latest software/driver from the synaptics website as well as Compaq's recommended drivers for my laptop off their website and neither worked. I've also tried on several occasions to deal with Compaq chat tech support but was unable to come up with a solution.

If anyone knows if it can be configured in the registry, or if there is a config file that can be edited, or 3rd party software, please let me know if you have any ideas!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi,
I'm using a Synaptics Touchpad on my Acer V3-551 and when I follow the steps to turn off double tapping (go to the device settings in mouse and click settings and find tapping and disable) I can't seem to find the tapping option. The only options are Overview and Buttons. I have updated my driver to make sure it is fully up to date. This computer was once windows 8 but is now windows 7. Is there an option I need to turn off in order to see it? (full model is V3-551-8469)
Thanks!

In Windows 7 I downloaded the latest driver from Synaptics and it gave me the option to disable the touchpad. However nothing I do has allowed me to do the same thing in Windows 8. I never get the touchpad icon in the system tray. When I go to the Mouse device in device manager it shows the touchpad as another device but the "disable" button is grayed out.

I am using an Acer Aspire notebook.

 - I've got a new HP Spectre x360 - 13-4111tu - When I'm typing the mouse pointer can not be moved - This appears to be a deliberate thing.

Windows 7 laptop (Lenovo) 64 bit.

I want to stop all the extra features of the Synaptics touchpad on my computer but still be able to use the pad as mute. I mean, I don't want the pointer to grab onto objects and open links or do anything unless I click on that object. I don't like all these new features and don't know how to stop the pointer from opening links. It also opens and closes apps. I went into the mouse properties and disabled all the features but the mouse still has a mind of its own. Is there any alternatives? I don't want to only use an external mouse as I often use the laptop sitting on a couch and a mouse is not convenient.

No option to disable your Synaptics Touchpad when you plugin a USB mouse? The function is there but is disabled in the registry. Click the link and scroll down to message #9. Make the change, reboot and the auto disable works immediately if you have a USB mouse plugged in. Making the change in HKLM didn't work for me but HKCU did the trick. Navigate to the Synaptics settings page and the option to disable is now there. No credit due here, just passing it on to help others.

I feel silly for posting to ask this - but I have spent an hour trying to sort this out now and am at the point of banging my head against a wall!

How do I disable the touchpad click feature on my laptop mouse.

I have an Advent 5301 and the touchpad is synaptics.

In "Mouse Properties" there are no options regarding the touchpad at all. Please do not tell me to go there. I have been there and I have looked thoroughly through every part of it. There are no touchpad options.

I tried downloading a driver by going here: http://www.synaptics.com/resources/drivers - but that just stuck me with a program called Scrybe, which did not appear to do anything at all.
It took forever to download and install, so when it was finally done and after all that proved to be useless I uninstalled it out of rage, and now I just get errors if I try and install it again. I only try to do so as I am at a loss as to what else to do.

Could someone please find me a link to the driver for my laptop? I have looked but I'm drawing a blank right now.

Please help before I go insane!

HI
Anyone any idea how to get the " Auto Disable Synaptics Touchpad when USB Mouse is connected" feature active again.  I found an old entry in a forum that referenced changing a setting in Registry to Hex 33 and implied that this would make the OPTION become visible in the Mouse settings in Control Panel.  But  it appeared to simply disable the touchpad ALL the time.So I assume Synaptics have changed things since this 'fix' was posted in 2009 I think. .
I have W7  XPS,  and Driver version 15.3.22.0 for Synaptics Touchpad.  Cheers

A:Auto Disable Synaptics Touchpad when USB Mouse is connected

SOLVED SOLVED SOLVED!!!

All - I've read through this and many forums and have found no solution. I figured it out on my own, so I am happy to share with you!
This solution applies to those who do not have a touchpad disable button on an F key at the top of your keyboard and have the Synaptics driver that does not show the option to disable the touchpad when the external device is present. This also applies to those where the registry key update does not work (as it did not for me).
Here's the solution.

1. Go to the Dell website and get the latest driver for your touchpad. Install it.
2. Once installed, go to c:\program files\synaptics\syntp in your windows explorer.
3. Open the program called DellTpad.exe (there is also one called DellTouchpad.exe -- don't use this one)

4. Once open, click Device Settings.

5. And voila, the old checkbox is there at the bottom! Just click to make this active and it works like a charm.

Just got an X1 Yoga 2nd Gen.  Pretty great except I see that WmiPrvSE.exe is constantly using 1-4% CPU in task manager. After digging I discovered this is due to the following query being executed by SynTPEnh.exe when it starts up: SELECT * FROM __InstanceCreationEvent WITHIN 1 WHERE TargetInstance ISA 'Win32_Process' This query string can be seen in the SynTPEnh.exe binary file via SysInternals procexp or strings tools. The query executes once every second indefinitely.  This seems minor but bad for battery life, but also seems unnecessary for touchpad functionality. I took a look at the reference SynTPEnh.exe that comes from Synaptics own website.  It does not contain the query string and so presumably does not rely on WMI for any functionality.  However the software on Synaptics appears to be old, from August 2015, so it is unclear if Lenovo or Synaptics has added the query since. What's up with this?  I'd like to not have my CPU used every second always, but I would also like my touchpad to function correctly.

On my HP laptop, updating its Synaptics touchpad driver fixed that exact problem. Elantech may have a similar update. Check laptop mfg's site first, Elantech's site second.

(Note: it is possible that there is a driver update which addresses the issue but makes no mention of the fix in the description. Be sure to create a Restore Point before applying [any] update!)

After reinstalling the driver and updating the BIOS, I still have this problem: When I go into the Synaptics Clickpad settings, I want to set the click actions as follows: 1 finger left click, corner tap right click, and 3 finger middle click. The Configure buttons next to each option are grayed out, but I can still choose these from the dropdown menus. But when I click Apply and Ok, 3 finger tap brings up Start instead of middle click, and when I tap the corners nothing happens. So I changed 2 finger tap to be middle click instead of right click, and after I did that, it still interpreted 2 fingers as right click.  I tried to make 3 fingers the Back button, and it still gave me the Start menu.

Recently (i.e. Today) it has been giving me an error and shutting down a program called "Synaptics Touchpad Enhancements", which has the adverse effects of slowing down the touchpad's sensitivity, and making the scroll bar on the side of the pad useless. Restarting solves this problem, but it occurs again after perhaps thirty minutes or so. I've already tried redownloading the drivers for it, but it hasn't solved the problem. In addition, upon selecting the mouse via the Control Panel, I'm confronted with this error.This problem has me stumped. Can anyone shed some light on what I could do to solve this?

A:Synaptics Touchpad

Hi,The issue you have mentioned and the error you attached clearly state that there is an issue with the Synaptics Touchpad drivers on the system. To resolve the issue, I suggest you uninstall the Synaptics Touchpad drivers completely from the system through Control Panel, Add/Remote programs (Win XP) or Programs and Features (Win Vista). After complete uninstallation, please restart the system. Download the latest drivers from the following weblink and then install the software. This will definitely resolve the issue.http://www.synaptics.com/support/driversHope this information helps.Regards,Vidya

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron B130, yes old I know. Long story short, let a friend borrow it who prefers a regular mouse, they installed it. Now I cant get my touchpad to work AT ALL. I have gone through Dell website and downloaded driver, nothing is working. Under my Control Panel-Mouse- under hardware all I have is "HID compliant mouse" I do have a tab that has the Synaptics symbol and the word buttons, no option to enable it anywhere. If anybody can help me it would be greatly appreciated!!
 

A:Synaptics Touchpad not working at all

it maybe one of the functions keys - on Toshiba and HP I know the function Key F9 or F11 with FN key
so you hold the FN key down (on toshiba a drop down menu appears at the top of the screen ) and then press f9 or f11 or any key that has a symbol that may look correct
that will toggle between enable and disable the touch pad
