Right click with touch pad results in same action as left click - new Inspiron 11 3000

Q: Right click with touch pad results in same action as left click - new Inspiron 11 3000

Using a mouse the right click behaves as I would expect it. Using the touch pad, right and left click perform the same function.
I am new user to both lap tops and Win 10. Is there a problem with my new Inspiron 11 3000 or with me?

The left click and right click buttons on the laptop are not responding. The actual mouse pad is working and I'm able to move the pointer/cursor.

It is a Thinkpad t420s, running on Windows 10. This started happening after a windows update was performed.

I had planned to downgrade to windows 8.1 anyway so I went ahead and did that, thinking all issues would be resolved. They were not. The drivers are installed and says that they are working properly... but the problem still persists. Keep in mind that I do connect an external mouse and it works fine.

Please advise.

Turned my laptop on after being on holiday for 2 weeks was working fine then all of a sudden left click stopped working and double tap on the touch pad stopped working i can move the mouse with the touch pad and i can use right click but double tap and left click will just not work.

Tried system restore 3 times without victory, i then backed everything up and formatted my laptop also restoring the bios to default settings just incase something decided to change on its own.

Ive uninstalled and re installed the touch pad drivers with no victory also so now i am absolutly baffled on to why these few features arnt working so im presuming something is stopping them because if the touch pad was broken i would presume the right click and touch pad would stop completly also.

Incorrect assumption, stuff partially breaks all the time. The left click button/sensor is separate from the right click or the touchpad even though they are part of the same bigger component. If you've done a format & resinstall that would rule out software and point at a hardware failure. You can likely buy a new touchpad on ebay for fairly cheap.

Hey! I've got a Dell Inspiron 3000 series which just recovered from some boot problems--I had to reinstall a Windows 10 image from the Microsoft website; was having problems downloading the Dell factory image.
One thing is still bugging me; I'm convinced that before the troubles, I could tap with two fingers on the mouse touchpad to send a right click. I've grown very used to this and can't figure out how to get it back. I downloaded and installed the touchpad drivers listed for my service tag, and the touchpad is working just fine for basic operations, but I don't have any control panel options to customize the touchpad beyond what a generic mouse could do. Is there any way to get this option back? Thank you very much.

Hello,
I have a customer that has a Dell XPS 14z, randomly the left mouse click stops working on the touch pad. Right mouse click and the actual touch pad itself works fine. If you plug in a USB mouse the left click works fine on the USB mouse, however the left click on the touch pad continues to not work.
Below are the following actions I have taken however they hasn't resolved the issue.

I have gone into control panel > mouse settings > Synaptics tab > set to default.
I have downloaded and installed the latest driver on the Dell website which is version: V16.1.6 ,A01 (http://www.dell.com/support/home/uk/en/ukdhs1/product-support/product/xps-l412z/drivers?rvps=y)
I have tried to set the mouse settings to left handed and back to right handed.
I have checked device manager and event viewer and both report no issues with the touch pad drivers failing.

What is strange is that once you restart the laptop left click starts working again, however it will stop randomly and by randomly, I mean that it could stop working 3 weeks from now or 2 days from now.
I don't think it is hardware because if it was I would have thought that the button wouldn't start working after every restart.
So any thoughts or solutions would be grateful.

Windows 7 synaptics left click acts like right click after reboot and the right click doesn't work at all. I've downloaded the most recent driver & searched for a solution online but haven't found anyone who has fixed this issue. Did everyone just give up or am I not patient enough & haven't dug deep enough. If I use a USB mouse there are no problems it just seems to be with the built-in after I've used the USB mouse.

Not sure how else I can title this post!

I have a new Dell Inspiron 15r as of this Christmas, running Windows 8. I ran the upgrade to 8.1 but I still have a problem with my cursor wanting to "hover click" on links or browser tabs, as well as being stuck in the down position, when I'm not even pressing on the touchpad left button. I end up selecting an entire region of stuff while moving the cursor across the screen.

I can't figure out what to change or configure in Control Panel, or is it in the Dell Touchpad configuration utility?

In Control Panel/Ease of Access Center/Make Your Mouse Easier To Use I have unchecked "Activate a Window by hovering over it with a mouse." Still happens.

It's driving me mad - never had this problem with Win 7 or any desktop machine.

Anyone? Thank you.

A:Dell Inspriron Hover-Click and Left-Click Gets Stuck

If you go into Mouse in Control Panel, then click Device Settings Tab.. on the right there's a Settings Button. I turned off the ones that say swipe. I also disabled rapid app switching. To do that press Winkey-q click Settings on the top right. Type "swipe" in the box. You should see a box on the left about rapid app switching. Click it and you can then disable it.

This is my first laptop also. The mouse gestures drove me crazy. About all I kept was tap click. Also I bought a $5 optical USB mouse and a $.97 mouse pad. I keep these in my Laptop case. When I have time and room to set up the mouse pad I feel much better about using the machine.

Dell Latitude - XPsp3

This is a problem with the built in mouse pad. I left click something like the desktop and the options menu comes up as though it was a right click. It's not a software setting, as I've checked them all, and I've reinstalled XP.

The only (temporary) fix I can apply is to plug in a usb mouse. Then the touchpad mouse will act appropriately. But it reverts back to this issue upon reboot.

Should I update the BIOS?

Hello all, from a few days until now I have started experiencing what seems to be a recurrent problem in the P50 laptop touchpad drivers. When using the driver 19.3.4.16 for synaptics pointing device, the left button of the touchpad double clicks most of the times (about 70-80% of the time). If I decide to update my drivers to the latest version, 19.3.4.202, then something even worse happens: the left and right buttons are inverted (and I have checked that the box of inverting the buttons in control panel is unclicked). From what I have been reading this has been an issue that has happened before already, but I don't know if Lenovo fixed it, or it has just been unsolved until now. Maybe someone around here can help me with this?

A friend came by about 3 weeks ago and attempted to show me the proper way to use tabbing in IE8. After he left, I noticed a difference in the process to connect to links within web pages that I'd never experienced before. He lives overseas and is hard to contact.

When in my browser, I have always left-clicked to go to a linked site. That works just fine; however, when I am in a webpage with embedded links, I can sometimes left click to go to the site of some of those links, but find that for other embedded links, I must rigt click and choose "open link" or "open link in new tab" or "open link in new page".

I've never had to right click to go to a link within any web page.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Dear all:

New to the forum.  Thanks in advance to anyone able to help.  I have two issues that seem to be related.  Today at some point I could not longer use my right or left click buttons on my laptop.  The touchpad still works in the sense that I can move my cursor and if I tap once on the touchpad (not the left/right buttons) then it will select a link.  There is no right-clicking capabilities on the touchpad itself.
I "attempted" to reinstall the driver.  Not sure if I was successful doing that, but seeing as how half of the touchpad functionality works, I'm not positive it's a driver issue.
After restarting my laptop I tried again to click on the left/right buttons and became frustrated and wanted to see if they were stuck, so I pressed down hard.  My laptop proceeded to shut off immediately.  Frustrated, I disassembled my laptop and checked out the touchpad sensor to see if I could spot something wrong.  Everything appeared to be in tact.  I reassembled and the laptop powered on, yeahh!!
I once again tried to press the buttons and nothing happening.  Again I pressed harder than normal and the laptop shut down.  I was going to disassemble it again however I got halfway before trying to power it on and the laptop powered on again.
My first issue is:  Why is my laptop suddenly shutting off when pressing hard on those buttons?
My second issue is:  How can I fix those button... Read more

Started after I tried to put Norton on my computer. Kept getting all kinds of error messages, so I deleted Norton. Immediately after, LEFT click stopped opening anything (except on this site, oddly enough). On eBay, hotmail, Amazon....anything other than this site, I have to RIGHT click, then chose Open. I saw this addressed in a few places, but didn't understand the fix that was suggested. One said to go to #18 on the home page. That didn't make sense to me. Would really like to just be able to LEFT click to open something. Thanks, y'all.
 

A:Left click opens nothing. Having to right click.

Click Start > Settings > Control Panel > Mouse > Buttons > Button configuration > Untick the box.

I've been having this trouble for a couple of months and i just can't figure out what has caused it.
On regular intervals usually happens within every half an hour the buttons on my mouse stop responding and I have to press ctrl+alt+del to get a response out of them and when I do the left click becomes the right click (right click always remains as right click)
To fix it I left click to bring the right click menu bar up choose properties then while the properties window is up right click and choose properties again and that always resets it back to normal.
Also what happens every hour or so the right click menu bar opens up on screen without touching the mouse,
and the page every now and again goes back to a previous web page (like pressing "back" on the right click drop down menu) without me touching the mouse aswell.
I use google chrome and due to the left and right click problem chrome's drop down menu does not respond when clicked,
if I just press on the favourites tab it opens every single page I have set as a favourite and also when I click on a web page tab it shuts it down,
I found out through google that this happens when you middle click on the cross icon on the web page tab area and then you have to middle click it again to reset it back to normal so it seems my middle click button seems troublesome too
And also I think due to this problem when I use VLC player I can't use the players interface at all so I have to close the program dow... Read more

A:Left click switches to right click

Have you tried connecting a different mouse to see if your current mouse is the culprit?

On this new laptop the left and right click buttons are in the corners of the trackpad, unlike my old aspire where they were on a seperate pad just below. The problem with the new one is, the cursor moves when you press for left click, making it annoyingly hard to scroll down, stop, then scroll down again. Is there a fault on it, or can this over-sensitivity be adjusted?

We can't really figure that out if we don't know your computer model.



First, CALM DOWN and look at my profile picture. Calm? Now post your message. If I helped, a Kudos would be great! Marking as solution will help others as well, thank you!

I've had this machine about about a week, so far I really like it.  Can't say yet that I love it yet, but it does what I need it to and the price is better than a tablet with the same functions and already has a keyboard.  This machine is kept in a padded case when not used in my desk drawer it does not bounce around in my briefcase etc.  
This morning the left button on the touch pad does not work.  At first glance it sort of looks like it is caught on something or stuck, the right button works great a broken switch under the button is also possible but this thing doesn't move at all I'd think a switch would still move just not contact properly inside.  I need my machine and I've made a couple of upgrades like a SSD for the stock hard drive and a 8 gig ram chip, I am not thrilled about pulling those components in order to return for warranty replacement etc. as I'm pretty sure you won't be returning the same machine I sent in.  I'm considering pulling it apart to see if it is indeed stuck so it can be pushed back out from the inside but if this is a common issue with this machine I'd like to know that...  
Can I be sent a new touch pad component, I believe I saw this is a separate board that attaches to the motherboard with a ribbon cable?  I'm not afraid of this procedure myself as I've been building desktops since the 90's and this is a really simple hardware to work on from the looks o...

A:New week old Inspiron 11 3000 3558 (touch) stuck or broken button on touch pad--warranty parts replacement?

This is an fyi about the final resolution of this issue.  After a lot of arguing dell sent me what was supposed to be the touchpad but what I got was only the plastic palmrest no touchpad. Then because it's a "daughter card" I got more argument about the touchpad.  I got hot enough that I opened up the back, lifted out the battery, took out the two funky looking screws and the whole pad just fell right out of the machine.  The buttons seemed fine so I screwed it back down, put the battery back in and closed it up.  It's now great, the button was indeed hung up on the edge of the plastic palmrest.  This is a very well designed inside machine, it all screws down and all connections are with plugs or ribbon cables.  I wrote back to dell and told them they need to fire their tech manual writers because they're idiots, a monkey could have done this.  Apparently it is not easy to find only the mouse pad it's generally sold with the palmrest from what I can tell.  This whole machine is so well designed I scratch my head why the cpu isn't socketed unless they decided there was no room for a socket etc, which I can see that argument.  So if your mouse pad quits try popping it out first it may just be hung up.

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

Hey guys,

This issue is for my desktop using Window 7 Ultimate 64-bit and it's been bugging me for awhile and I can't seem to find a solution online for it. The issue is when I have something minimized on the taskbar whether it's pinned on the taskbar or not, a single window minimized or stacked, and I go and left click to bring the window back up I get a right click instead. If anyone has ever right clicked on a program on the taskbar (pinned or active for the time being) you get this menu of recently opened files that are related to the program, that's what I'm getting for a left click on several instances. It's an intermittent problem but one that really annoys. This also started to happen on my laptop which is using Window 7 Premium 32-bit. First I thought it was my mouse screwing up but now that my laptop is doing it I'm second guessing the mouse's fault. Any possible theories? Thanks in advance!

A:Left Click=Right click

On 2 separate computers? Did you use the same disk to install the OS, did you install the same program on each?

Something you did to both caused this.

For some reason, on my desktop, when I left click anywhere it acts as I have just right clicked and gives me a drop box (You know, arrange icons by, properties.. ect.)

Anyways, when I RIGHT click, nothing happens, not even when I have a browser open..

I checked my mouse settings in Printers/Other hardware, and nothing seemed out of the ordinary, I rebooted twice and it still does it. Anyways.. Thanks for any help in advance

A:Left Click = Right Click?

open your task manager and check the processes running.

if there is one that says reverse or something like that then end that process.

the same thing happened to me and this solved the problem permenantly

Hello. Using vb.net, I've been trying to figure out how to paste the clipboard into the window your mouse pointer is pointed.

If anyone has used unix you are familiar with what i am asking for; just to double right click or middle click and to paste the content of clipboard to the given window.

Can anyone offer any ideas for .net?

I would use double right click, or middle click, or single right click.

Please respond with your ideas~

Thanks

-Sandra

A couple of days ago I downloaded a media converter from CNET, editor's pick etc. Was slammed with toolbars and a search conduit something or other. I managed to get rid of it and all associated programs that I could see. I tried many different fixes and malware tools and don't even remember which ones any more. Although I no longer have any of the annoying stuff in my browser, my computer just would not react to my 1st, 2nd, and sometimes 3rd clicks. Whether it's clicking the "properties" of a photo on my hard drive, a tab in Chrome, a google result, sliding a scroll bar, buttons of any kind or clicking a text input area - result was all the same. Nothing. It wasn't a "delay" - just a big zero. It would work on the 3rd or 4th time. So I used system restore to an earlier time prior to all this, and it hasn't helped.

Any input appreciated.
