How to change the Multi touch pointer for your finger?

Question: How to change the Multi touch pointer for your finger?

Hi, I'm new to the tablet and experiencing that even when I turn off the "Touch pointer" in control panel, the cursor is always above my finger about 1 inch. This makes it is very hard to navigate and I cannot even open the Start menu at the bottom.How do I change this behavior? Thanks for your help!

The multi-touch screen is suppose to register 5 fingers right? Mine reports only 2 under the computer properties page in win 7. Is this normal, or do I have something wrong?

Answer:Multi-touch screen finger count

multi-touch does not mean 5 fingers.  It depends on the hardware.  In the case of X220, multi-touch means 2 fingers.

Hi all,
I'm currently operating with a Dell Latitude (E6410) running Windows 7 32-bit. I have the default Alps touchpad built-in, and was recently ecstatic to find the driver for multi-touch on the Dell Support page, something I figured I'd never get privileged to since this doesn't have a Synaptics touchpad.
Everything works as it;s supposed to, as far as the options go under the Dell Pointing Devices menu. However, I noticed that two-finger options are missing, specifically a two-finger right click. This is odd, seeing as there are plenty of other two-finger options, and since two-finger right click has become a standard with multi-touch touchpads.
So my question is, is there anything I can do to get two-finger right click? I don't see any options officially provided by Dell, so I'm totally okay with installing software or drivers from somewhere else, as long as they work. I haven't been able to find anything myself, as it seems every driver and software in the world is developed with Synaptics in mind.

Answer:Two-Finger Right Click with Dell Multi-touch Touchpad?

I have the exact same question. I see that this was posted 3 years ago without a solution / reply :(

Answer:lenovo x201 tablet 3113-94U support multi touch??(pen & finger)

Hi, btoymus23
 
I did some research on your machine and found its entry in the Personal Systems Reference. Machine type 3113-94U does not support MultiTouch, unfortunately. This information can be found in the link on page CML3-4 (use Ctrl+F to find it faster.)
 
MultiTouch, however, means to be able to use three distinct points on a touchscreen at once, not being able to use different touch inputs. I think you should be able to use your fingers to touch objects on the screen, though the pen might be easier.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

Hello All - I just noticed that my multi-touch (not enhanced multi-touch) screen no longer responds to finger touch; just pen. It used to respond to both before i upgraded to Windows 7.I tried the Lenovo diagnostic check for the touch screen, and during the test, it only responded to the pen.What should I do? Is there a certain driver i'm missing or need to uninstall and then re-install?Thanks in advance.

Answer:Post Windows 7 Upgrade - Touch Panel Not Responding to Finger Touch (x200t)

Ok...I think i really screwed something up. As per a Lenovo support tech's advice, i installed the Windows 7 "Enhanced" Multi-touch Driver, even though i do not have the enhanced multi-touch screen, and this is what it says on Lenovo's site about this new driver: "*1: ThinkPad X200 Tablet models with the Multitouch are NOT supported." "*1: ThinkPad X200 Tablet models with the ENHANCED Multitouch ARE supported." So, i go ahead and install it. I notice that finger touch now works, but the pen setting are now all screwed up! The eraser no longer responds when i turn the pen around to erase. It actually INKS with the eraser as well! OneNote no longer automatically starts inking (or erasing) when i bring the pen (or eraser) into range. I have to manually click on the pen icon (or the eraser icon) on the tool bar to use these functionalities! *groan* In the Tablet PC Input Panel: no eraser functionality (it inks instead!!) and even the button on the pen (which previously had the right-click ability) only inks when pressed down! I think i made my situation worse...Please Help! Adam

I have ThinkPad X230 Tablet. It used to have non-functioning touch screen. I did something, and now the screen responds to pen input, but it doesn't work properly for finger touch. When I touch with finger, only thing it does is minimize or maximize window. When I change position of taskbar (with start menu and icons), it doesn't maximize/minimize.  I think this means that when I touch with finger, cursor clicks at bottom right corner of display, where there is button for maximize/minimize window

hi!

I am using win 7 home edition.I have changed the cursor with a yellow circle and have named the file to unnamed.cur.After i have changed the default cursor to the one with the yellow circle and have saved it.But after i reboot the system the cursor does not change to the pointer with the yellow circle but it goes back to the normal pointer.I have put the customized pointer in the c:/windows/cursors folder but when apply it still does not apply the changes to it.I am using windows 7 home basic.

Help would be appreciated.

Answer:change the mouse pointer to a yellow circle around the pointer!

The way I have change cursors is to treat them like a system file you need to take ownership give yourself permission and rename the original cursor with a .bak in the name and then copy and paste the custom cursor with the original cursor's name into C:\Windows\Cursors folder. Take a look at Post #6 of this thread will tell you how to do it Basic Networking Information

Then you will need to reboot.

Guys I'm having this issue with my touchpad, when I slide towards a button on the screen and lift my finger up to hit the click button, in most of the cases I mis-click because it seems the pointer jumps away when I lift my finger. This is very irritating. This was default with clean install Windows 7. So I installed the drivers i.e. UltraNav, but that made things worse! Now it seems like the resolution has dropped and the mouse cursor is twitchy. I played with the UltraNav settings, made things a bit better, but yet still worse than the default configuration I had with Windows 7. Oh yeah, the jumpiness of the cursor remained after lifting finger from touchpad. So I removed those drivers again... What to do now? Seems like a software issue, but that jumping drives me nuts.......      

Answer:X230: Pointer jumps away when lifting finger from touchpad

Install the latest Synaptics drivers, set everything to default and increase touch sensitivity a bit. That'll make it much better until Lenovo gets their act together. The latest Synaptics drivers were just released.

Hi everyone,
As the title says really. I just want to see if others are having similar problems before I bring this up with Dell directly. 
Some pertinent info: This is my second 'XPS 15 9560' and both laptops have had the exact same problem. All drivers are up to date, windows is up to date so I'm using the latest precision drivers from microsoft. I have tried disabling double tap dragging and enhanced precision to no avail.
I'll be happily moving my pointer around the screen and as I lift my finger to click on something the pointer will jump about 5 - 10mm in a random direction, often causing me to click on the wrong thing.
The fact it's happened on both laptops tells me others must be having this problem too. I can't seem to find anything specific on the issue though.
It's driving me nuts and would like to know if anyone who has had this problem has managed to cure it? I've heard installing synaptics drivers can help with some touchpad issues but then you lose touchpad functionality so seems pointless to me, also this fix was for the 9550, last years model so not sure how relevant it is, although my understanding is it's the same touchpad.
Hopefully someone can help, thanks
Mark

I am an older person who uses my ThinkPad X120e away from the office quite a bit.  In the last few years my hands have become increasingly shaky.  What is happening is that when I move my finger around on the touchpad the cursor will pass over icons and buttons on the screen.  Often my finger gives an inadvertent bounce and whoops I just selected an ad or feature I did not intend to select.  So my question:  Is there a way to disable the select on tap function of the touchpad?  I still want to use it to navigate but prefer to use the keys to do the selecting because of my unsteady hands. Note to Marketing types - There are an increasing number of us old farts who are looking for ways to stay active on line in spite of our impairments. Thanks for any help, hoping this is a simple adjustment I have not found yet.

Answer:Can I disable the 'touch select' and multi touch features on my touchpad

Oceanglenn, welcome to the forum,
 
if you go to mouse settings in control panel you can disable this function by removing the "tick" in enable tap zones, or adjust it to how it's comfortable for you;
 

 
Alternatively you can also reach the settings by using the key combination Fn + F8
 
Hope this helps

Haven't updated your laptop's trackpad driver lately? Then you may well want to consider doing so, at least if your laptop is equipped with a Synaptics trackpad. As a user on the Hardware Zone forums discovered, the latest Synaptics driver seems to enable multitouch gestures on older laptops that didn't previously support them, including two-finger scrolling, and three-finger click. What's more, while the drivers themselves come from HP, they should work just fine on other laptops with a Synaptics trackpad. Hit up the link below to try it out for yourself.

Hi everyone, I buy laptop - Lenovo Edge E330. I'm experiencing a very annoying problem - whenever I move the mouse pointer using the touchpad and lift my finger off it, the pointer jumps a bit when lifting my finger. This causes the cursor to miss my target so I have to re-position it every time. I've had this problem with Linux and Windows XP, with or without the Synaptics driver installed. Is there any option in the Synaptics driver to resolve this issue?

Answer:Edge E330 - Pointer jumps when lifting finger off touchpad

Hi, barzefutz
 
Provided your drivers are fully updated (which you can find here if they need updating), then I would recommend lowering the sensitvity of your Trackpad to reduce instances of this issue. You can change the Trackpad sensitvity by going through Control Panel > Mouse. In this menu, you should see a tab that says Pointer Options. There is a setting to change the speed in this menu.
 
Good luck,
Adam

I just got a ThinkPad e565, and the one thing that's driving me insane is the trackpad. I typically use trackpads with my middle finger to point, and index finger to click the buttons, but with no discrete mouse buttons, that means that I'm constantly right-clicking when I mean to left-click. I've tried uninstalling the drivers, tweaking every setting I can find, and turning on/off the multi-touch options. Is there any way to make every click a left click, unless specifically in the right-click zone on the trackpad? Or at least, is there a way to turn off this weird feature? I can't find anything online, and I can't find "Hold one finger, click with second finger = Right Click" addressed or even mentioned in the manual where it discusses the trackpad. Any information would rock.

As many of you have come to find out, some of the new drivers for windows 10 on dell laptops are messed up - you can no longer navigate back and forward while surfing in a browser with three finger multi-gestures - arguably one of the must useful gestures. I had this problem with the touchpad on my e5450. After 2 hours of trial and error, this is how I fixed it:
1. Uninstall the current touchpad driver - confirm that the DellTPad folder in C:\Program Files is empty(there may be a file left that you can't delete, but that's ok)
2. Restart your computer.
3. Download and install the windows 7 driver -  you will need to restart.
4. Navigate to the DellTPad folder again.
5. Now you will need to change the compatibility of all the application files(.exe) to windows 7(it may only need to be one or two files but I changed the 6 there just in case). To do this, right click on each file > properties > compatibility > change settings for all users > check mark windows 7 and run as administrator. Do this to all the application files but NOT Apoint - it will not auto-startup if you do.
6. Restart
7. Open the dell touchpad properties and adjust your multi gesture settings.
Note: while this method worked for me, your system might be different so ymmv.

Answer:Windows 10 touchpad multi finger gestures FIX!

For me it works with present driver by running Dell Touch application as Administrator and playing with properties in the Touch pad application, located on C:\program files\DellTpad

Hi keerati,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Check the Touch funtionality in OKR environment.
    Turn off the computer and Turn it back on and right away start tapping F2.
    Select Recovery. Once in the Recovery screen Test the touchscreen by touching any of the option if it will respond.

If the touchscreen works in OKR Environment, I suggest you perform a One key recovery (expect dataloss).
 
If the touchscreen still did not work in OKR Environment, I suggest you call Lenovo Technical Team for assistance.

Hi, Does the current x200 tablet multitouch screen have the capability to one day support multiple finger touches at the same time (similar to iphone)? I'm not speaking software-size, i mean strictly hardware-size. Thanks,Chris

Answer:x200 Tablet True Multi-finger hardware capability

As far as I understand: No.Usually the term "Multitouch" means exactly what you are describing. But I think that IBM/Lenovo started using the term BEFORE the iphone-way (and the trackpad-way of MacBooks) became what's now meant by Multitouch. With Lenovo it simply means a screen with both pen and finger-touch capability. The hardware for a "true" multitouch system is based on a capacitative touch-technology, the X200 screen is NOT. Unfortunately...I think that at this moment Dell is the only company producing a "true" multitouch tablet. But Vista supposedly supports it. Martin

inspiron 5447 Win10 - Touchpad, Multi Finger Gestures Not Working.
I have this problem over a year,
HERE I AM LOOKING FOR HELP AGAIN, IS THERE ANY NEW SOLUTION FOR THIS ISSUE ?
i heard about many costumers facing the same issue.
I tried unsuccessfully some fixing suggestions from the technical support over the year.
I still have the same touchpad problem and I very disappoint and its very hard for me using a new pc without multi touch over a year without any solution.
I have a feeling that DELL ignore the problem and ignore the costumers.
I am sorry that i wait for solution over the year, it was better if i was return it in time and get my money back.
for me it was a very bad costumers experience and ill avoid of buying DELL products in the near future again.

Hi rigwad and welcome to the community,
 
Some screens are pen only and some are pen and touch.
 
Go into control panel, system. About the middle of the page it will say pen and touch.  What does it say after that?  Does it say that you have pen and touch?

The screen becomes insensitive to a finger when I am about an inch away from the screen with the pen, but this is not enough to avoid accidental dots and lines with your finger.

Answer:X220 Tablet - No finger touch capability only pen :(

there are two types of X220t and X230t screens used one is both touch sensitive and uses pen digitiser, there is another one that is outdoor screen version that is only pen digitiser (so there is no finger touch capability).

Hello everybody, this is my first post on this forum, from my first lenovo PC, so I'm truly a newbie. Just picked up my brand new x220t from a local reseller, and tried to configure it to fit my needs. During the process I realized I'm not able to configure the touchscreen nor use it. The digi-pen works fine though. 1. I've checked under Control Panel | Pen & Touch Devices. This window should have 4 tabs (the last on the right should read Touch), but it ain't there as if some functionality was missing. 2. I also tried to turn the touch screen on/off via Simple Tap. It does inform me that I'm about to switch the touch screen off (and as a matter of fact I'm not able to use it wth my fingers) but when I turn it on again the touchscreen still doesn't react to my fingers. 3. I've downloaded all the win7 as well as lenovo updates via the update managers, installed them and did a complete restart of the system - still no touchscreen. 4. Under device Manager I tried to find Wacom  devices, but couldn't find any. (the touch screen is a Wacom, am I correct?) 5. In despair I even started reading the pdf manual where one can read:  "Some models have the touch panel feature". This left me a little bit uneasy. Do ALL x220 convertible tablets have finger sensitive touchscreens? I have read the sticky thread about conventional vs. multitouch lenovo tablets, and I gather that the answer should be yes - all have finger input besides digi-pen. ... Read more

Answer:x220t - NYK27PB - no finger touch input

The models with the outdoor screen (the one that has a reinforced gorilla glass surface) don't have multi-touch, only pen support. If your model doesn't have the outdoor screen then it should have multi-touch support, if that is the case perhaps you should contact tech support? It's possible that it's just a hardware problem and needs replacing.  Also, the pen digitiser uses Wacom technology, as far as I'm aware the multi-touch system doesn't.

Hi, I have been baffled by this issue for quite a while now. I have a lenovo X220 tablet that supports both finger and pen inputs for touch. Originally this laptop came with windows 7 and everything was fine and dandy. I then bought windows 8/8.1 Pro 64-bit and did a clean installation of it. Now I only have pen support for the touchscreen, i.e. my finger is recognized as a pen/mouse not a finger which is really frustrating specially when scrolling. Now before I actually purchased the win8 license I had tried out the windows 8 release preview and everything worked perfectly then. So now when I got the actual release of the OS its not. Furthermore I currently have a dual-boot set up with windows 10 technical preview as my other OS and in there it also works perfectly fine as it should. This is important because when I contacted lenovo about the issue they suggested that my screen was broken, but clearly it is not.  Can anyone shed some light on this issue? It is a real shame not to be able to take advantage of this fine screen and windows 8 touch friendlyness.  Kind regards.

Answer:X220 Tablet pen support only no touch with finger

Answer:x60 multitouch issue: finger touch won't work

Not all screen are multitouch capable, the pen have a special proximty device that the sensors on a layer on top of the screen picks up, unless the screen also has an additional sensor sheet for your finger, it would not work with your finger... There are two types of screen option one is Multitouch and Non-multitouch in the XGA format, and SXGA format is definitely non multi-touch.

This morning, I decided to make the jump to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1, and I have to say, the design looks simpler to use, but this new OS software has done something with my touchpad. Originally, on my Windows 8.1, I was able to scroll through whatever web pages or folders in my computer with one finger using my touchpad. With this new update, initially, I thought it broke my touchpad completely, but the problem has been narrowed down to having to now use two fingers to scroll in the most awkward way as this touchpad doesn't seemed to be designed for two finger scrolling. Is there a way for me to change this back? Would I have to revert back to Windows 8.1 to get my one finger scrolling back?

The laptop I am using is a Gateway NE56R34u, and the touchpad is an ELAN. Any and all help would be much appreciated.

Answer:How to change from two-finger scrolling back to one-finger scrolling?

Would Gateway drivers for their touchpad be one area to explore ?

Answer:X201T 2985-F4U -- Both finger touch and pen not working on screen

Hi and welcome to the forum!

The tabook says your model has multitouch (i.e. both pen and finger touch). Is this a new system you bought? If so, did you buy directly from lenovo? Did the touch ever work?

Try to install the following driver:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-74908

If the driver installation doesn't help, subsequently try Windows Update, look particularly for Touch Input driver, if even that doesn't take you anywhere, then give factory restore a go (after backing up your data), to do so, press ThinkVantage button on boot to access Rescue and Recovery, and choose restore to factory contents in the following wizard. Note that factory restore is only available on lenovo preloaded OS.

Keep us posted.

Hi Lebouitz,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m really sorry to hear that you are not able to start your Lenovo X1 carbon Touch using the fingerprint reader.
 
I would suggest you to try the following steps.
 
To enable power-on passwords replacement:

Login as administrator.
Start Fingerprint Software.
Click Settings.
Click Authentication.
Check Always show power-on Security Option if power-on passwords are not set.
Check Use fingerprint scan instead of power-on and hard drive passwords.
Check enable single sign-on capability if you want to boot from power-on to windows without further fingerprint swipe or passwords.

 
Spoiler (Highlight to read)
 
To enable power-on replacement for fingerprint swipe:

Start Fingerprint Software.
Authenticate with password or enrolled fingerprint.
Click the Power-on slot on the top of the enrolled fingerprint.
Close Fingerprint settings and shutdown system.
On the first reboot you will be asked for your password and fingerprints. The second time you reboot it will only require your fingerprint.

My 7840's touch pad "One Finger Scrolling" functionality has become inconsistent.  It had been working fine by using the 'DellTPad.exe' application and selecting (if memory serves) 'one finger gestures'.  That option is now gone however one finger scrolling still works for awhile, and then fails and the only option to scroll using two fingers. A reboot fixes it for awhile then it starts all over again.  This problem coincided with a recent round of updates, though the touch-pad driver was not one of those updates.

I'm befuddled. Two finger scrolling in Windows 10 dialogs, applications and Internet Explorer/Edge all works perfectly. However, Chrome is far too sensitive and the page blazes past.

Just to make matters more confused I've also got a Logitech mouse and the scroll wheel works fine everywhere - and this means if I install an extension in Chrome to configure scroll speed to work with the touchpad I will have slowed it down to a painful rate using the scroll wheel. Any clues how to configure Chrome two finger scrolling correctly? Is this an issue with the trackpad or Chrome?

I HAVE A X200 TABLET 7449-9EU IM TRYING TO FIND OUT IF THIS MODEL IS FINGER TOUCH COMPATIBLE IF SOMEONE CAN POINT ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION I WOULD BE GRATEFUL.

Answer:X200 tablet how can I find out which models are finger touch compatible

Well I would say that the most empiric way to do it is just try to touch your screen on some dialog boxes or pictures where gestures would trigger a reaction from the computer..... Indeed it's not very easy to figure it out from Lenovo support website ... I tried the product number but this only gave back basic characteristics of the machine, not the exact type of display/screen  I know mine is wacom enabled and (finger) touch compatible and I think I figured this out by... trying  http://shop.lenovo.com/us/landing_pages/multitouch_technology

Whenever I touch somewhere on my screen, the pointer just goes to where I touched it and it clicks, which is not how it used to function. This is effectively ruining touchscreen for me (.-.)

Answer:Pointer going to where I touch my screen, why is this happening?

Hi,
I think i share this same problem, it's really irritating. BTW do you remember what you were doing in your pc just b4 it happened. In my case, i think i installed the media feature pack just b4 it happened and i was doing something inside the device manager and most importantly i was testing out that tablet mode setting. These events may or may not be related to the touch problem that i'm facing now for half an hour. But i'd appreciate a reply at least.

Hi,I have another new issue with my X1 Yoga which started yesterday after I installed Norton Antivirus.  I'm not sure if the two are related and have searched all over, run virus checks, turned off pointer trails, etc but it still will lock and then unable to touch the screen.  No external devices are attached.  Bluetooth is off.  If I use the pen, it will override but still can't use my fingers as it will freeze again. Any help would be appreciated - its really frustrating.   Screenshot on an example of just opening up Chrome while doing nothing else i.e. the ghost in the machine opened the box and will freeze the pointer within the box.  Except there is no way to add it...  Thanks for any help.  

Answer:Pointer locked and unresponsive to touch

HW: x240 SW: Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa; kernal release 3.19.0-32-generic The maschine was running very stable. I used settings for the track pad that it did not work but only the track pointer. This is my preference. Then I observed that the track pointer stopped working and the same time the track pad started working, Going back to my previous setting and all was working fine for a few hours to a few days. Then the problem startet again. Finally track pointer and track pad stopped working and I can only work using an external mouse. Any hint on how to solve this problem is highly appreciated.

I'm getting to my wits end with my laptop. I have a Z500 Touch, windows 8, and I love it apart from the fact the mouse keeps randomly disappearing. I have no idea what triggers it. It's whilst I'm using my laptop too, it doesn't disappear after it goes to sleep or is locked etc.
 
Tried several different things, ctrl alt delete, F6 etc, none working at the moment. Tried to see if any of my devices needed fixing, and that was a no go too. I don't have a usb mouse to plug in at the moment, and I'd prefer to figure out how to stop or at least fix this without having to get one if at all possible
 
I don't know if this is a setting or a button I keep accidentally pushing, but if someone could please tell me how to get my mouse cursor back I'd be eternally grateful as this is driving me insane - the only reason I could even get on here was because this is touchscreen, but I miss my mouse pointer!!

Answer:Z500 Touch - Mouse Pointer Disappearing

hi emmz992,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Just to verify, did you encounter this issue the first time you setup the PC or you just encountered this lately?
 
If it's just lately, can you try one of the following:
1. Disable "hide pointer while typing" under Control Panel (large icon view) > Mouse > Pointer Options Tab and enable "Show location of pointer when i press CTRL key"
  - Link to picture
 
2. Uninstall the Touchpad Driver (ELAN or Synaptics) under Control Panel > Programs and reboot. Upon logging back in, Windows will use a generic touchpad driver. Try to observe the mouse pointer behavior and observe (you can always re-install the touchpad driver by navigating to D:\Drivers\Touchpad or by downloading the driver from the lenovo website).
 
3. Boot in Safe Mode with Networking and observe the mouse pointer behavior. If all goes well, perform a clean boot and observe. If same problem, perform a System Restore in safe mode to undo any possible updates that was installed on the system (ensure that you make a backup copy of your files).
 
 
Regards

Whenever I physically move my laptop (like pick it up to move it closer or to a new location) the pointer for my touchpad freezes. I have to close my laptop and open it back up to get it working again. If i keep my laptop in the same spot it will work perfectly. This problem only happens when I physically move the laptop.
