small tech question( laptop)
« on: October 27, 2014, 09:07:57 PM »
is there a way to cut off the sensitivity on the cursor arrow?  it picks objects not intended without clicking when I drift around the screen,  Mainly it's Left Coast supplies. 
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

Maybe in your mouse settings or in your mouse software.

I just wadded through that this morning and removed the "tap" from my touchpad; Control Panel, mouse, Synaptics, device setings, and unclick the "tap".  Apply and OK and the bothersome touchpad tap is gone.   ;D

Thanks, I just checked it, it is off,,, it's not my normal one, mine needs another battery, this is my son's, a loner if you will, he always complained about it through school, now I know why, its like it has a mind of its own.  I'll get by with it, just a pain at times.

those touch pads can be a pain. i always use a mouse if i can. they are usually too sensitive for me.

Yea, I am not using a mouse, just the touch pad and the two clicker buttons below the pad.  It just picks up  on certain items, mainly adds, but I'm not clicking it at all just an automatic feature.  I'll keep looking, there has to be a way to do it.. thanks
