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.)

Hey guys, today I've got my new Thinkpad Yoga and it's really nice but I don't know if it's the driver or the touchpad it self. I can't push the right mouse button. Whether I use the double tab nor the right corner (at the top or bottom), nothing happens. left click works fine, but only if I activate the on tab option. Already tried to uninstall the driver and reinstallt the new version from the website nothing changed. And sometimes the touchpad and the trackpoint don't work at all. I'm using Windows 8.1 x64. Thanks for your help! lg

A:thinkpad yoga touchpad right click does not work

I've recognized something. Sometimes when I use a "click" function of the touchpad a small touchpad icon appears on the notification area. But you can see it only a short time. I think it is definitely a driver issue. Am I the only one?

I got a ThinkPad T430 yesterday and have been enjoying setting everything up, installing all of my software, and tweaking every last setting to my personal preference. I've got almost everything set up the way I like it, but there's one big problem left. I cannot for the life of me find the option to enable right-click or middle-click using the touchpad. In my experience, when using standard laptop touchpads, you're generally able to right-click and middle-click using a two finger tap or three finger tap. Neither of these options work on my laptop. I have downloaded the Lenovo System Update software, which in turn updated all of my drivers. This includes my touchpad driver, so everything seems to be in order in that regard. However, I've gone through every option in the touchpad settings and can't seem to find what I'm looking for. I've included a screenshot of the touchpad settings, so if any of you can point me towards which option I'll need to explore in order to enable right-click and middle-click taps, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

When I input something with my keyboard, the touchpad/trackpoint doesn't accept any clicking for about ~0.5 seconds. Its a small delay but it is driving me insane. T460 laptop, Synaptics Clickpad V1.1 Things I've tried:-  Reinstalling drivers, and restarting laptop. Nothing changed.-  Turned palm rejection to minimum. This fixes an earlier problem where the mouse would stop moving with keyboard presses, but it doesn't affect the clicking delay.-  Went into the registry editor, found 'synaptics' under 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE' but couldn't find any variables that indicate a delay after keyboard presses. I'd really appreciate any help with this. ~3 hours of googling isn't helping me.

It's right-click button and double-tap to right click function isn't working as intended; the left-click button and single-tap to left click function is working ok. When plugging an external mouse, however, I can right click as normal.
I tried reinstalling the driver from the Dell website and it's still not working properly. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi
Running Win10 on an Acer E5-511-C46Y.
I have an Elantech touchpad which every so often (maybe weekly) decides it's no longer going to do tap to click (my preferred setting) and is going to behave as though I am clicking and dragging the whole time. So I have to click instead of tap. It's mighty annoying.
I have done all the obvious things - driver up to date, BIOS version is the latest, settings are fine and disabling/enabling has no impact. The only cure seems to be turning the computer off and on again (who knew?!)
Acer say reset, but suspect that's the recommendation for every unsolved issue.
Is there a way to restart touchpad and reload all the drivers (essentially, to do what the laptop would do when rebooting) but without restarting?
Many thanks in advance...

Is there a way to enable a key or something to right click using the touchpad, sorta like a mac? It could be a keyboard key, 2 fingers idc.

A:Right Click with Synapsis touchpad?

There are probably programs out there that can substitute a key such as Alt to perform right click functions, but I've never heard of them.

As far as the multi-touch functionality goes, unless your touchpad has multi-touch, there's no way to enable it. It's not entirely a software function, it also relies on hardware. This is why you can use multi-touch with some touchpads and not with others. It's also why a Macbook Pro's touchpad has more multi-touch features on the OS X side than on the Windows 7 side.

Got my first x64 laptop this week and noticed a few hiccups with it. Anytime I run certain 32 applications, I can't use the touchpad to perform clicks. I can still move the pointer around but the tap-to-click stops working. Going into stand by and coming out usually fixes the problem, but in some cases I had to reboot. I tried a couple versions of the 64 bit drivers (synaptics , from their website and the ones from gateway). I still see the same issue.

Anyone else experience this?

I've received a shiny new ThinkPad T470 today, a much needed upgrade from my T410. Should the bottom left & right corners of the touchpad actually physically "click" when pressed, or is it purely a tap-sensitive device? The touchpad seems to be lower by 1-2mm at the bottom end than at the top end, it doesn't sit flush at the bottom whereas it's level with the main chassis at the top.

I bought a brand new Windows 10 ACER Aspire E5 series laptop computer back in February. I have not had any issues at all with it. But today I have this very annoying issue. When I lightly tap my touchpad on links instead of opening the link like it had been doing previously all it does is highlight the link and drag it all over the screen. The same issue happens when I try to switch tabs. It locks onto the tab and I have to click again for it to release. This is very annoying when all I'm wanting to do is switch tabs.

My touchpad is one of those multigester ones and I have turned off the following options
Allow double-tab and dragUse a two finger tab for right clickUse a two finger drag to scrollUse a two finger pinch to zoom

I don't know why it started doing this today. I also have clicklock turned off under additional mouse options.

This is not the "tap to click" feature - I have already turned that off.
How do I turn off the click in the main touchpad area?

Basic story is that I bought my lenovo laptop about a year ago. I was excited when I received it, however, I quickly realized that the right mouse click button did not work correctly. You have to press it very hard and it regularly fails to work. As far as I can tell from reading around, the synaptics version of the pad had issues that were resolved by a driver update. Has there been any sort of fix for the ELAN version? I've tried both uninstalling and reinstalling the latest drivers available (as far as I can tell) to no benefit. Would really love to get this fixed so that I can use this laptop as intended.

My single-surface touchpad is exasperating and I would never buy this model if I knew... Much of the time, a right-click behaves simply as a left click. For instance, a multiple hits Google search page disappears and becomes simply the one selection I'd intended to "open in new tab" from the customary drop-open submenu, which fails to appear upon right-clicking a hit.
Also, right-clicking a highlighted block of text often simply removes the highlighting instead of providing a drop-open submenu for "copy" or "cut" or the like. 
I'm trying to get in the habit of substituting two-finger taps for right clicks, but that choice is unreliable and fails rather often.
Dell ought to be all over this, but improved drivers haven't been offered.  Short of resigning myself to using an external mouse on a table top (not exactly why we wanted a laptop with touchpad in the first place), is there anything I can do to improve this temperamental touchpad's performance?  I've done my best with settings; nothing corrects the performance problem described here.

The right and left click on my Yoga 3 11 touchpad has always been a bit flakey but now it very rarely works at all. Other than that everything else seems to work fine. Scrolling, 2 finger scrolling, tap and double tap are good but the physical clicking makes a sound but doesn't activate. I've done a complete restore to factory Windows 8.1 and just upgraded to Windows 10 Anniversary but still the same problem both for 8.1 and 10. I've looked for a replacement trackpad but can't find one specific to the Yoga 3 11. Does anyone know if another model eg Yoga 2 11 would work or where I could get one?  I also have a Miix 700 which is a tremendous piece of kit but sadly the Yoga 3 11 has been terrible with the CPU throttling and the dodgy trackpad. Any help or advice gratefully accepted. Thanks

It's symptomatic of a failing battery -- if the battery is swelling, the first place you'll notice is with the touchpad (which is right above it).
See here:

(meanwhile, remove the base cover and check the battery -- if it's swelling, get it out of the system immediately and out of your home or office -- this IS a safety issue).

So I recently purchased a new laptop that has Windows 10 installed (Acer Aspire E5-573G) and I would like to change the way the touchpad taps work. Specifically, I would like a middle click from a three finger tap. It's an ELAN touchpad, if that makes any difference, and I have installed the latest drivers.
Everything I looked up on google said to either use some program from ELAN, or to edit the registry. There currently is no program installed on here from ELAN, and all the google results I could conjure up while looking for a download for the program are people wanting to get rid of it. The only thing in my programs and features from ELAN is what I believe is the driver - "ELAN HIDI2C Filter Driver X64 13.6.3.1_WHQL"
The suggested registry edit also isn't available for me. That is to say, the path "HKEY_CURRENT_USER > SOFTWARE > Elantech" does not exist.
I'm not sure what the correct way I should be going about this is. Everything else regarding the touchpad works as intended, but I have no way of customizing it beyond the settings in windows. And since I have zero interest in having Cortana or action center being on my computer let alone as mouse commands, those settings are completely worthless to me.

Hi. I have a Sony Vaio VGN-CS215J laptop. My laptop's touch pad mouse has been really buggy lately. Sometimes, the touchpad is working fine, but suddenly the touchpad wouldn't allow me to click with either the touchpad or the left clicker. Weirdly enough, even if this does happen, my right clicker on my touchpad usually works fine. It causes my scrolling to buggy sometimes too. I reinstalled my Synaptics driver for the touchpad and its still giving me the same troubles. My usb mouse works fine as far as I can tell. Is the problem most likely physical (ie. Do I have to physically clean out my laptop?).
 

A:Laptop Touchpad sometimes doesn't click

It probably is a damaged left click switch, and it could be something that has fallen in behind the button. To clean or replace it likely won't be easy, expect an hour or two of dis-assembly to be able to remove the touchpad and if its broken you may have to source a new one from somewhere to replace it. I'd probably recommend just using a mouse with it.

Just recently observed that the right-click button on my touchpad is not working. This just happened today. I have a Sony Vaio VGN-NR280E laptop and am using Vista. I've checked the device manger, drivers are up to date, no yellow exclamation marks.

Here is what I've tried:

- reinstalled Original Alps Driver and restarted
- reinstalled Original Alps Driver a second time using Windows Back up and Recover
- made sure the mouse settings in Control Panel were correct

I think it could possibly be a hardware issue as pressing the right click key is not responding or opening any options, however, I haven't spilled anything on it or dropped it. My last option is to ship it off to Sony but my warranty expired a few months ago, and I looked at the price list and it is crazy expensive.
