Hello there, recently I installed Win 7 and the double click on the touch-pad is not responding. I have to use the left button. I re-installed the the drivers various times but the issue is still persisting. I'm using A300. When I go to Device manager settings everything looks like normally - device working properly. Is there any "connection" among Win 7 - VAP - Synaptic? At least I have a wireless mouse and it's working just fine :). Any idea?!

Answer:Satellite A300: Win 7 touchpad double click is not responding

Hi

You have to check if the ?double click, double touch? is enabled in touchpad properties!
Please go to control panel -> mouse -> device settings -> settings (or properties???)
There you will get many options related to the touchpad.
There you should find the option related to ?double click?

Bye

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.

Hi.

My sons Satellite L350 touchpad is not working and he has told me he has messed about inside with a friend.

The ribbon is chewed up. I can not find a touchpad to motherboard ribbon anywhere apart from one from a L450..are they compatible and if not ,where can i buy one for a L350.Many thanks..!

Answer:Need new touchpad ribbon for Satellite L350

Unfortunately I cannot say for sure if both models use the same touchpad.
Maybe you should ask nearest Toshiba service. If the guys confirm this, you can order it.

Do you want to exchange it alone?

I have a toshiba laptop Satellite L350 with Vista 32 bit, and my problem is NOT working FN keys.
I've installed allready Synoptics Touch Pad V6.3 from Toshiba website, but it didnt help.

I've searched for other mentioned software posted on this forum, but i couldnt find.

The biggest problem ist that my touchpad is blocked, and not-working FN+F9 made

Me use just keyboard - which is difficult and annoying :(
I would be really greatefull if somebody can help me :(

hugs,

Answer:Satellite L350 - touchpad FN and F9 key is not working

So did you install Windows yourself using a generic street copy?

You will need to install the drivers from the Toshiba website.

I think the Value Added Package installs Fn key support, along with other important functions.

Hi guys, been a while. I hope you can help!

I have a Satellite L350-210, it is about a year old and running Vista HP.

Out of the blue, the touchpad stopped responding. I have tried enabling/disabling it using the FN + F9 key, updated the drivers, nothing. So then I uninstalled the drivers altogether, and reinstalled them using the ones listed on the official synaptics site, and the one on the toshiba site, nothing. Uninstalled again, and let the laptop find the drivers. Nada.

I went to the device list and the Synaptics device isn't even listed under mouse and pointers where it usually is. The only evidence it even exists is it still seems that it is listed as a startup program and when going to the mouse menu in the control panel, there is a seperate tab with the synaptics logo on it, although nothing in the tab is clickable. Everything is grayed out no mention of touchpad at all.

Does anyone have a clue? I would be most grateful for any help!
 

Answer:Satellite L350-210 touchpad not recognized

You could try, in device manager, right-click on 'Mice and other pointing devices', choose 'uninstall'. Then re-boot. Windows should discover the touchpad again. I was asked to look at an Acer Aspire which had the same problem. I think I would lift up the keyboard, see if it's possible to find the plug from the touchpad to the motherboard. Unplug it. Re-boot windows. Shut down. Plug it back in, re-boot Laptop and if all is well it should force windows to find it again and install the drivers.

Answer:Re: Touchpad has stopped working on my Satellite L350-171

Please check at first if the touchpad is enabled or disabled.
Use FN+F9 key combination and be sure touchpad is enabled.

Check also device manager and entry for ?Mice and other pointing devices?. Is touchpad listed there?

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.

I have just changed from a Satellite M70 and the performance of the touchpad is far superior. Is it possible to install the M70 touchpad driver on the L350? Anyone see any problems?

The Satellite L350 driver lets the pointer jump all over the screen. Before you say "change the settings" - I have - for about an hour.
The Satellite M70 driver has far more stability and more features - like each corner can have a function - copy and paste for instance.

Any technophobe at Toshiba got any ideas before I screw up the main interface on my new L350.

Answer:Satellite L350-277 - Can I install touchpad driver from another model?

Hi

I can?t imagine that the jumping will be caused due the driver. Make sure that you are not touching the touchpad if you type something. Alternative you can disable the touchpad due writing if you press FN+F9.
Check this!!!

And before you install a driver from another notebook you should test the newest driver for your notebook. Please check the Toshiba website for an update of L350 driver first:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

By the way: What OS is installed at the moment? Do you use preinstalled OS from Toshiba?

Hi Just wondering if that is possible? It should be if somebody knows the path (command line prompt to that function) which is then pasted to the 2 finger double tab configure section of the ultranav menu.On the side note, the latest update for the thinkpad ultranav finally made the gesturing and the movement of the touchpad more responsive. I used to have the 2 finger double tap for the windows aero flipping but after the update it was lost and that post i originally made regarding this seems to have been lost in the hundreds of posting on this forum....(Maybe we should have a reference sheet of all the command line shortcuts for simple functions such as right clicking, going to the desktop, switching between applications etc in a list so people can configure their 2 finger double tap or the 3 finger press in the ultranav since all thinkpads these days have the multitouch capibility) Thanks

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.

My son has just purchased a Satellite P850 laptop to use for school work and gaming and has noticed a problem with the behaviour of the touchpad.

When using the touchpad, if you have one finger in the area of the touchpad used for mouse movement, and then try to click the right hand mouse button, the laptop behaves as if you clicked the left mouse button. If you click the right hand mouse button when you are not touching the mouse movement area, it behaves correctly.

We have tried changing various touchpad settings but have not been able to correct this problem. We have also updated the drivers for the touchpad to the latest version from the Synaptics website, but the problem still exists.

Is there a particular driver or setting that gives the correct behaviour of the right hand mouse button whilst still touching the touchpad with the other finger?

> When using the touchpad, if you have one finger in the area of the touchpad used for mouse >movement, and then try to click the right hand mouse button, the laptop behaves as if you clicked >the left mouse button
Sorry but I use touchpad too but in moment when I use one of the touchpad buttons I don?t touch touchpad area at this moment. I have two Toshiba notebooks and I tried to test this on both of them but none of them react on the way described in your posting.

As far as I know such behaviour can be result of ?confused? touchpad.
>... when you are not touching the mouse movement area, it behaves correctly.
In my opinion it is the right way to use touchpad correctly. I don?t think you can change anything using some other touchpad driver. Preinstalled driver is tested and I think the right one.

Answer:Satellite Pro L305D-S5934 - Keypad will not execute a double click

Hi!

Do you mean the left mouse button before the touchpad or the ?Tapping? function on the touchpad?

The Tapping function must be enabled first. This is the same as clicking the left TouchPad ?mouse? button.
Navigate to control panel > Mouse > Device Settings > Settings > Tapping. There you can check if the function is enabled or not.

Dear Support,
I have a Dell VOSTRO 3560 laptop that has an Elan Tech SmartPad touchpad. I like its responsiveness very much.
Unfortunately, I recently spilled a bit of coffee and some of that went under the touch pad left and right buttons. The buttons stopped functioning but the touch pad itself is still very good.
Even before the spill I rarely used the buttons. I always used the touch pad to tap to click and two finger tap to right-click.Strangely though, after the spill when the hardware buttons stopped working, the tapping on the touch pad also stopped working. I made sure that the touch pad still can do tap clicking by uninstalling the Dell TouchPad driver and reverting to the Microsoft Mouse PS2 driver. In that case I can use the tap to click feature but only for 1 finger tap. I do not get any other feature as the driver is the simple generic MS one.
My question is would it be possible to still use the Elan tech provided (Dell TouchPad) driver and somehow configure it to accept the tap to click and two finger tap to right-click? This in addition to all the remaining scrolling and gesture support that the driver implements? I tried all the Dell Touchpad settings applet but nothing changed. Perhaps a registry value setting in the section for the elantech?
What seems to be happening now is that the driver is doing some hardware diagnostics, determining that the hardware buttons left and right are not working, and consequently completely disabling left and right click comm... Read more

Answer:X1 Carbon touchpad requires a hard touchpad press and click for click to register

Hi, vtjiggy
 
Does this apply to the entire TrackPad? Do both left and right-clicking require a great deal of force? You could also try installing the latest Synapatics driver and see if that helps at all. Synaptics is the company that develops UltraNav, which is installed on all ThinkPad systems by default. The latest driver can be found here.
 
Good luck. Let me know how it goes,
Adam

Hello all

Is there any way to turn the click function off on the touchpad as it clicks things whilst I?m moving my finger across the touchpad and it is really annoying me seriously and there is no setting that I can find to resolve this issue!?

Answer:How to disable touchpad click on my Satellite C50D-B-11N?

To be honest such issue is not known to me and I heard it for the first time now. Usually if something should be ?opened? you must use tapping option.
With other words, so long you have permanent contact with touchpad surface nothing should be open and click option cannot be active.

Anyway, check please if you can find tapping option in mouse properties and disable it just to see if problem persists.

Hello,

I have a new U920t-102 which I am very happy with, but I have this issue with the mousepad's right click (meaning the 'button' the user is able to press on the bottom-right side of the mousepad): sometimes it actually works as a right click, sometimes it works as a left click.
This is annoying especially during web navigation: I'm used to right click on links and open them in a new tab, but when the right click acts as left, I loose the current web page.

I tried to figure out what this behaviour depends on, looking at the animated synaptic icon in windows' tray bar while playing with the left and right click; if I continuosly press the right click button on the mousepad, after some repetitions it will consistely and correctly work as right click, but if press the left click once or more than once, the right click button works as left click for some pressures, and then 'corrects' itself and start again to work correctly.

Any idea/suggestion? is it a hardware problem?

Marco

Answer:Satellite U920t-102 touchpad right click issue

Usually the touchpad right / left click can be configured in the Synaptics settings.
Right click on Synaptics icon in tray and point to devices properties.
In buttons tab you will be able to choose right handed scheme or left handed.
Here you could choose the scheme appropriate for you.

You can also try to uninstall the Synaptics touchpad driver and could test the touchpad functionality without the usage of additional touchpad software.

But if this doesn’t help, your might have hardware problem

Answer:How to disable touchpad click sound on Satellite L

Hi

Usually the touchpad does not create any sounds.
I assume you have installed an USB mouse and the sound appears due to the usage of this mouse.

I have no clue what mouse software this is but I think you should check the settings inside this tool.
Otherwise you have to check the control panel -> mouse
There are some options which are available to mouse and touchpad.

Answer:Satellite U400-15h - touchpad key makes a click noise

Hi

It looks like a mechanical touchpad button issue.
I think in your case only a touchpad button replacement would be a real option ?

What do you think about this opinion?

I think the ASP help is needed and therefore you should contact the ASP in your country for a touchpad test?

But is this issue really so annoying? I mean the technician would replace this but you will have to send the notebook and should wait a time until this issue could be fixed.

Hi,

The left click on my touchpad has stopped working. It works *very* occasionally but mostly it doesn't. It also freezes the screen if I try to click it too often (in a fit of temper usually ;) )

A USB mouse works fine, which is okay when I'm working on my desk but means I can no longer use my laptop on my lap! The tap click does work, but I don't like using it.

I reinstalled the drivers and that hasn't solved it. I turned the laptop upside down and gave it a good shake to get rid of any crumbs etc under the mouse and that hasn't solved it either.


Any other ideas?

Answer:Satellite C650D - left click on touchpad does not work

Hi

Could be possible that there is a mechanical problem with the touchpad button?
Pressing the button too often might lead to the system freezing because of the CPU stress and load.

In my opinion the touchpad board or the single button (if possible) should be replaced.

Hi,

I've updated my Click Mini to Windows 10. I've encountered one problem where sometimes my touchpad isn't working correctly. Instead of making the pointer move up and down when instructed, the pointer will go left and right. When making the movement to make the pointer go left and right, it goes up and down. To avoid the problem I connect a mouse or use the touchscreen, however it's still quite annoying.

After booting up the click mini, this seems to be the case 50% of the time.. I suppose it's a software issue. Is there a fix? Is this a known issue?

Having just bought a ClickMini to replace my trusty Libretto 100 there are a couple of things that I hope other users or forum experts can help me with.

1) does anyone know how to TURN OFF tapping to click on the ALPS 'mouse pad'. Having been used to a 'nipple' and proper click bars this 'feature' does not work well for me, giving false activations more often than I would like. Note that I have looked at the pad properties in Control Panel and, it appears from this, that tapping either is not active (which it is) or that it cannot be changed. Note also that the ALPS driver is up-to-date having downloaded from the Toshibs website without effect on my problem.

2) how can I display the status of both the battery in the tablet section and that in the keyboard dock? Several folk refer to doing so, or seem to, in the threads below but I cannot find any way of doing so. Your help and advice will be valued.

Finally, although new to this forum and with a new machine, I am far from a Newbie in PC computing terms having bee using compurters in various guises since before the IBM PC was invented. So I am far from being inexperienced and unable to read between the lines of an instruction manual, indeed I have written many myself!

I think you will need to disable the option called Momentum.
This can be done in the Synaptics touchpad settings (control panel -> mouse -> Synaptics tab -> Settings button)

Expand the option called ?Pointing? and remove the mark from ?Momentum? point.

Just bought my Satellite P50-C-18k laptop yesterday - I do not like having tap to click as it seems to be over sensitive and accidentally selects various links as I move the cursor around.
So a simple task - how to disable tap to click on the touchpad - or seriously reduce the sensitivity.

I have of course gone to control panel and unchecked all of the various multiple finger options etc for the touchpad/Elan. I have also had a look at the mouse options but nothing obvious there. I downloaded the touchpad driver from the Toshiba website but that made no difference.

I noticed an earlier thread where people were messing around with the registry but on a different model so i dont really want to try that on my new laptop but if someone can confirm if thats suitable for use with Windows 10 (anniversary updated) 64 bit on the P50_C_18K I will give it a go.

The website is pretty frustrating - with Yoko offering tips that are not really helpful and no obvious way to make a quick phone call for support.

The right click behaves like a left click i.e. it does not open a menu.

The left click cannot drag and drop, this includes when using scroll bars.

I've reinstalled everything but nothing has changed. Is this a common problem? Is this likely to a problem with the hardware or software?

Answer:Touchpad right/left click is not working properly on Satellite L50

Hi

On this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there. Have you noticed this issue from he first day of usage?
I mean when you start your notebook for the first time it has original factory settings and everything should be OK.

If I understand you right there is some reaction when you use touchpad buttons so what you can try is to set all touchpad options to default settings.

Hi,

I have a problem with the left click of my Satellite Pro M40 (PSM46E). It has lost the 'click'.
Does anyone have some guidance for taking the top off to repair? What screws and how etc?

Many Thanks

Answer:Satellite Pro M40 - touchpad and left click repair guidance

Hi!

I think you will not get some guides because only an ASP (authorized service provider) has someone. These documents are not for the public.

I don?t know how to disassemble the notebook but this procedure is tricky. You must remove a lot of screws and parts like keyboard, LCD, upper cover and so far.

*You can try it and try but it?s your own risk*. I think this should do by a notebook technician.

By the way, I founded a maybe interesting article for you:

Hi,

I'm having trouble with my touchpad and I've tried everything I'd be gratefull if someone here helped me...

My problem is that I can't left click with my touchpad, the button doesn't work neither does taping, although the right button works.

I on the internet when suddently it starte failling and draging everything i clicked, then it just stoped working.

Also I went to the mouse options and switched to left handed touchpad, and when I click with the right button the left button works, but then the right click (that's now on the left) won't work neither does tapping.

Answer:Touchpad left click does not work on Satellite L650

So this means that touchpad hardware (touchpad buttons) are ok.
You should check if new touchpad software/driver installation would help you to get rid of this annoying issue.

In device manager you should firstly remove the touchpad device. Reboot the notebook and then install the touchpad driver once again.

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~

Hi guys,

Just purchased a new laptop and have noticed that the right click key is very loud and hard to press, the left click is normal, quiet and light to press.

This was the most expensive laptop in the store with the 4th gen i7...yet the right click sounds and feels like something from a laptop from 10 years ago. Anyone else have this issue ?

Think I might return it as I just don't enjoy using it.

Answer:Satellite P50T-AO1C - touchpad right click key is oud and hard to press

I agree... visit the notebook dealer, show him the button issue, test the button on another P50T unit and ask for replacement.

Hi,

Trying to be helpful, I emailed Toshiba to let them know of a broken link to the latest Elan Touchpad Driver 12.8.5.1 for the Click Mini. Obviously not trying to be so helpful, I received an automated email from Toshiba telling me I had to to post this on the forum instead. This doesn't give me a nice warm feeling regarding customer support levels, but hey ho....

The broken link is: http://support1.toshiba-tro.de/tedd-...0707101101.zip

Answer:Satellite Click Mini L9W-B - Elan Touchpad - Missing Driver Hyperlink

Obviously something went wrong during the upload...

But ELAN touchpad driver does not depend on the notebook model.
You can use the ELAN touchpad driver released for other notebook series.

So in case this link doesn’t work, choose ELAN driver released for another Toshiba notebook series.

My symptoms are these:
right click hangs on all files but not folders for about 30-40 seconds then works fine for a few moments but once I click away or do anything else the problem comes back
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.

What I have tried so far:
Running Adaware and AVG to determine if spyware/malware installed
using shellview to disable processes - no results
cleaned temp files and defragmented drives
uninstalled hp easy button keyboard software

I'm using a brand new Yoga 13 (Window 8 Pro).  Clicking on the touchpad (not the touch screen) sometimes has issues.  Specifically, every once in a while, a single-click on the touchpad will result in double-click behavior. I'm not referring to tapping, but rather physical clicking (press, depress touchpad on the lower left). I disabled tap-to-click in case it was registering the tap, and then the click.  That didn't resolve the issue. I also increased the speed required (within Windows) for a double-click to the fastest (least time between clicks) possible.  That also didn't resolve the issue. It really seems like the touchpad, every once in a while, registers a double-click, like some sort of physical defect in the touchpad that presses, depresses, presses depresses immediately. Ideas?

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.

Just a goofy phenomena that seems to be puzzling me. Each time I single click on a desktop icon, it acts like it was double clicked and opens the file/program. When single clicking on a scroll-bar to the right of a window, it acts like it was double clicked, traveling much further down the screen than expected.

Recently (in the last month) my computer has started giving me a double click on a single click of the left button.  This is very irritating.
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..

What I mean is that let's say I am trying to hold and drag a desktop file it will sometimes just click, making me drop the file on the spot. It will also double click when I try to make a single click. I tried to lower the settings for double click timing on the settings menu.

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

Answer: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.

I've been looking for a solution for this problem for a while, and to no avail there is not anything online that has helped thus far.My problem has been going on for about a year now, and I don't really feel like paying people to take a look at my computer just to tell me that they have no idea what is wrong with it. The situation is that my mouse, for some odd reason, tends to respond like a double-click / multiple clicks when I only press the mouse button once. This problem originated with a Microsoft Intellipoint mouse, I thought that it was quite possibly the mouse that was dying out (As it was a couple years old) so I went out and bought a cheap optical mouse, as many people do when they don't want to buy a costly mouse for an older computer. So the mouse I have now is a ValGear (Purchased from Wal~Mart) mouse. It didn't fix the problem, but I wasn't too concerned with it as it was mostly just a minor problem. Now this problem is ever-present, not just randomly double-clicking everything I single-click but as I found out in another program when I clicked to zoom in it zoomed in approximately 4 times in this particular instance. So I finally figured it's time to look again see what may be causing the problem.The system I'm running is an older one, but I have updated it, keeping it fairly up to date and it still runs approximately as good as the brand-new lower end systems.

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?

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

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

Answer:Equium L350 - touchpad stopped working

> I've gone on to the manage driver screen and it has a small exclamation mark next to the synaptic ps/2 port touchpad.
For me it looks like the external mouse has muddled up the touchpad settings.

Try this:
Disconnect the USB mouse (if necceary remove the mouse software) and remove the Synaptic ps/2 touchpad from the device manager list.
Just simply mark it and press delete or uninstall the driver.
Then reboot the notebook.
After new reboot the OS should recognize a new device.

We had a virus and one of the problems it created was the inability to double-click a drive (hard drive, flash drive, etc) and open it.

I purchased a T440s a few months ago. Suddenly I am unable to right click on my touchpad in order to open drop down menus, where they are available,or to right click while highlighting text? I manage to do this if  I click on a specific spot around the bottom, middle of the touchpad, but this takes a lot of fiddling around in order to get the precise spot that happens to work.  It is certainly not a practical solution.  Does this sound like a physical hardware issue, that I need to bring my laptop to the depot for, or might this be something else that can be addressed within my settings or some sort of update?   Has anybody else had this specific problem?   Thanks!    

Answer:suddenly right click not work on t440s touchpad, only awkward middle click

For the sake of troubleshooting, I should add that when I connect a mouse it works fine but, of course, this too is not a practical mobile solution.  A response from someone from Lenovo on this site, in particular, would be appreciated.

When I double click over a file or right click to open it, it takes 30sec to 2minutes time. That really irritates me. Instead if i open the application i want and then drag the file over it...its really fine, no problems. but i am really fed up doing so...

My exact problem....If i wanna listen to an mp3 file if i double click over that it takes 30sec to 2min...if i open the media player and drag the file over that....its fine...

plez help me sort out this problem....

i even tried to see if that were a virus problem but it was not....i scanned all the drives with Norton...
 

Answer:problem while i do right click or double click...

Hiya and welcome

Are you still having this problem? If so, lets take a look at a log. go to http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Regards

eddie

Answer:Double click and Fast click

My Ad-Aware program has picked up a couple of cookie files on my system "Double click and Fast click" what are these, and should I get rid of them??

Not exactly a problem, but is there a way of disabling the `rename after one mouse click` behaviour in Windows? For example, if you click once on a desktop icon when you actually meant to click twice, the name becomes editable, not a problem in itself but it can be a pain when you're moving lots of files around. Perhaps I just have windows double click time set up wrong, but a way of disabling the `feature` would be nice, so editing only works when you press F2. I have tweakUI, the promising-looking `detect accidental double clicks` feature is intended for Web-view windows though

Answer:Double click/single click

Speed up the double click reaction time from the mouse's Properties.You can test different speeds and find the one that works for you.Normally the Rename feature is reached from a right click.

Hello all, I am new to these forums, and I was hoping someone could help me answer some questions on a spy ware problem I am having. First off I should probably start off by telling you that I use CA security center. I recently got a new hard drive on my Dell, I pretty much started from scratch, but after reinstalling everything I noticed every so often when I clicked the mouse it would click twice, so right away I deleted my cache and cookies, which had double click and fast click cookies, and then ran a spy ware scan, and it detected Double Click. I deleted them, well even though I deleted them I am still having the double click problem, and its really annoying because it happens a lot. Im not sure if CA spy ware scan is picking all of them up or what, but when I ran another scan nothing was detected, so I don't know what to do. Ive done some reading, and cant really find anything that would help me solve my problem, so if anyone could offer some advice, I'd greatly appreciate it.
 

Answer:Double Click/Fast Click

Just checked cookies again, and I have another double click cookie in there, it seems no matter what I do, it wont go away.

The right-click touchpad button on my Lenovo Flex 2/15 is not working: it does nothing.  Left click is okay.  When I plug in a mouse, right-click on the mouse does work.  When I turn on the 2-finger tap, it also does not open a  context menu.  I have Windows 10, but the problem started a week after the installation, so I don't think it is a Windows probllem.  Suggestions?

I'm using the track point for navigation and the touchpad for the mouse click functions, I notice that when I click the touch pad once the laptop registers 2 clicks, this is especially noticeable when using hotmail, i.e. you delete 1 email from the inbox and the next one is also deleted as well. It is as if the de-bounce on the track pad isn't working that well, any ideas what causes this and is there a setting I can adjust to increase the de-bounce period? Thanks J

Build 14316
So I came home after a long day to find that my laptop was registering my left clicks as right clicks for some reason.
In case you're wondering; nope I did not install anything recently unless you count a security update pushed by MS, but I doubt that's what caused this, because I installed that yesterday and the laptop was working fine until 30 minutes ago.
Solution?
Keep in mind that since your mouse/touchpad isn't working properly, you'll be working with the arrow + "enter" keys to do all of this.
Head into settings (win + i key combo) > Devices > Mouse & touchpad
This will open the Mouse options window, but to get to the options you need to scroll down to the last option on the left side of the window ( using the arrow keys obviously) which is "USB" then hit the "tab" key and you should jump to the actual Mouse options.
If done correctly the box under "select your primary button" should be highlighted. So now all you have to do is hit enter and select "left"
Bit of a crude explanation. Hope you can follow it, but if you have any questions go ahead and ask.
Just thought I should post this in case anyone else runs into this

Hello community,
 
I've recently purchases a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 540 and it worked just fine untill earlyer today (bought it around mid June).While i was browsing the internet, some how my touchpad developed a problem.It only registeres right click where ever i click.I've deleted the drivers, even tho they were the knewest ones, downloaded a fresh .exe and installed it after the reset and what not and it still has the same problem.If i turn off the touchpad in the ultranav software and enable only trackapad, the buttons work like they should, the large area in the touchpad registeres as the left click and the small area in the top right is registered as the right click. Tho i can't use the touchpad for navigation.
So clicking doesn't works, well neither does tapping. I can doubletap normaly, but i cannot tap and drag such as selecting a block of text.
Again, i've already tried a fresh install of ultranav drivers and it didn't work. The problem manifested itself during normal browsing, nothing was installed nor changed hardware vise. It litteraly changed in a second.It's a really strange problem and i have no idea how to solve it since the driver reinstall didn't work.
 
I appreciate any help, thanks.
