After using Lenovo System Update and updating the Elan driver to v.22.4.9.2, the touchpad settings were all gone. I saw that someone had luck on another model laptop rolling back the driver. In device manager, under "Mice and other pointing devices" find the "ELAN pointing device". Open the properties for it and choose "roll back driver". It picked v19.4.11.2. Once I restarted I now have the touchpad settings in the system tray and can turn off the "tap to select" which I hate. I am on Windows 10 Pro version 1903. I don't know if the Windows May update had anything to do with it or not. It is not on Lenovo's list of issues.

Can anyone please help me figure out the solution to this? My Dell 14R 5437's touchpad isn't properly working lately. 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.

I have a problem in the touchpad, it doesn't work at all, (doesn't appear in device manager and the pointer disappears when i unplug the USB mouse) I tried all methods, the fn +f6, updated Bios, updated Drivers, re-installed Windows, even I made a test with a Linux live CD and everything worked except the touchpad. In BIOS there isn't any options regarding the touchpad as wellI was wondering if there is something needed to be enabled in firmware? I wonder. what can I do at this point, I am using an external USB mouse, but I need the touchpad to be working as well.* the laptop is new, there is no physical damage at all

Hi all, This is a pretty old and known problem for Lenovo laptops. My old one from 2011 had just the same problem as my new one. The issue is that touchpad behaves badly only from time to time, like for a minute every hour. If I leave it be for this period of time, next time I touch it, all is fine and movement of the cursor is usual.Does anybody know a ready solution for IdeaPad 510? Is it drivers? I have found just some mentioning of motherboard drivers, but updating them made no progress. Maybe there is a known set of drivers that were seen to fix the issue? Thanks for the help!

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron 1501, WinXP, and the touchpad is doing double and even triple clicks when I do a single click. The problem is intermittent. Sometimes it's fine, sometimes it's horrendous. This almost cripples the computer for doing any serious work (3 windows open instead of one, programs get closed by accident, windows pop up and down all over the place). I have reintstalled the touchpad driver from Dell several times, I have fiddled with all mouse settings in control panel, and I have replaced the actual touchpad hardware, the housing that includes the touchpad, so I don't think it's the physical button itself. However, an external mouse connected to the computer does not have this issue, so it could still be the hardware. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Aaron.

Hi, I am an Englishman living in Bulgaria. I am no spring chicken and more of a computer user than a technician so am limited in what I can do albiet, I can follow simple instructions, but I have most probably already tried every 'fix' I could find on the Internet and the Touchpad is completely unresponsive and yet, an external USB Mouse works just fine.

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.

using the keyboard to copy hangs and then once the computer "unfreezes" copy/paste with keyboard works fine
double clicking on a file that would launch a program hangs for a while then opens the program.
using the delete key hangs
Otherwise performance is normal everything runs fine while using all programs.

Running Adaware and AVG to determine if spyware/malware installed
using shellview to disable processes - no results

Correct. "Folder Options" refers to Windows Explorer. The "folders" within a program, like WLM, are under the control of the program. However I noticed that my version of WLM (2009) behaves the way you want without the "Reading" pane turned on. If I turn it on then a single click shows the email in the reading pane. If I turn it off, it takes a double click to open the email to view it. The reading pane is controlled via the "Layout" Viewing option.

It does this with both, a USB Logitech Track Man Wheel and with a wireless HID mouse.
I have tried adjusting the settings for the mouse but that doesn't seem to have any effect.
I have AVAST antivirus.  I have run Microsoft Security Essentials, Malewarebytes Anti-Malware, Spybot search and destroy, Super Anti-Spyware and Junkware Removal Tool.
I have updated all of my drivers and used Drive Booster 3.
When I click to close a window on Firefox it will double click and minimize the browser.
This problem is active in all of my programs that I run, not just the browser.
I have Windows Vista, 64 Bit on a Dell Inspiron laptop.
Does anyone have any suggestions.
I think this has to be a software problem, but I don't know how to correct it or which software is involved..

Hello,

I came up to a problem that I cannot solve. Using the Explorer (not IE but the plain explorer to organize folders and files) I cannot change the behaviour of an Active Desktop like in WinXP or others.

I am very used to this procedure: single click = mark an object / doubleclick = execute an object.

Unfortunately, the Explorer just uses the option single click = execute. I remembered the option in XP/Vista, that you can go to Extras -> folder options -> Select Elements and tick a radio button for the Active Desktop method or the classic method (execute via doubleclick). Just as described in the tutorial "Single-Click or Double-Click to Open an Item" within this forum.

I tried this, and now I'm getting nuts: The radio button is already put on the classic mode (execute by doubleclick, select by single click). The other option is grey, i.e. it cannot be selected.

I guess, there's some tick wrong in the registry or else, but I cannot find out which. Does anyone has an idea what can be done?

A:folder options / single-click or double-click

The checkbox/radio button option is under the View tab in the same dialog.

EDIT: Tried out another mouse, it doesn't click out of nowhere but is there a way to fix my old mouse? I can switch the buttons so right click acts as left click so it seems that specific button got practically destroyed

A:Mouse double clicks when I click once and click when I hold it.

Do you mean the other mouse works fine? As far as I know there's no way to fix a mouse other than making sure the trackball or optical lens is clean, whichever your has.

A repair would cost more than a new mouse I suspect. You can get an ordinary one for about $5 or so.

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?

It works when first booted, then stops. If you reboot it works again.

I tried changing the options such that you can open with a single click, and it didn't fix the problem.

Now when I log on my new profile, anything I double click on desktop items (folders or my computer) I get an error "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item" - If I right click and hit open, it works great...

Also - programs seem to open fine, just problems with folders and my computer. I also get the same error from the start menu.

I am unable to double click on any application icons. If I do, I get the RED error window letting me know that there is no associated file. I believe that I caught a virus causing this issue. I have ran multiple anti virus and scanning programs and have determined that I have cleaned the system. I just need to fix the issues, possibly with the registry. Anyone able to help? I am running a Sony Vaio Laptop Windows 7, Intel Core 2 Duo. I was just using the computer as is, but wife just bought me a Apple IPAD and I cannot install I-Tunes, and assume that this is a related issue.

[SOLVED] I insanely associated the .lnk extension with NotePad. Arggh!

RELEVANCY SCORE 57.2

I've got Windows XP Professional with SP3. About 3 weeks ago my computer started taking a single mouse click as a double click. I've gone into control panel/folder options and made sure it is set up correctly there ("double click to open item")

Any of suggestions??

I've got McAffee virus protection and it is up to date. I ran a full scan and nothing was detected. For Grins and Giggles I did a "CHKDSK /R" but this did not help either.

Thanks,
 

A:Solved: single click is double click

I just tried the obvious - BAD MOUSE was it.
