How do I turn off the finger touch when writing with a pen?

Question: How do I turn off the finger touch when writing with a pen?

I am using windows journal a having problems that I can not turn off finger input when writing with a pen. 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. Can one either configure the pen distance from the screen from which on finger touch is disabled? Or can one disable finger touch altogether? I have been following some discussions on forums providing some workarounds, but maybe there is a simpler solution around?138

Hello. I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 from work and we use it to get customer signiture on a web browser page for the company I work for. however lately. when a customer is trying to sign in the signniture box, it just move the whole screen around in a similar way to moving the screen with your finger. the only way it writes is when you hold the stylus down for a scond or two and then write without lifting it. but every time it leaves the screen then the same problem happens again. I tried to fix it from the touch screen settings but nothing seems to work. and advice on fixing this is greatly appreciated.

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

I was informed by an X41 tablet seller on e-bay that  he was unable to use the X41 tablet by touching the screen  with the finger. Is this true? Is there some magic  to get finger touch working ?thanks

Answer:finger touch on an X41

Hi netbeans, welcome to the forum, afaik, X4* tablets didn't have this capability. Depending on model X6* tablets do.So if you want to give your tablet "the finger" it had better be an X6* tablet.

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?

I am in an IT department at a small clinic in Idaho.  We have several X220's and X230's here.   There are several machines that have issues with the touch screen just stopping.  Nothing with the pen/finger will work.  The mouse still works, but nothing with the pen. We created a script that restarts the TabletInputService, the docs would run this script when the pen stops working.  That script works a majority of the time, but not always.  One of our docs just received a brand new X230 Type 3435-2TU 2 weeks ago.  She pen has stopped working several times in that two weeks.  She said that script only works a few times.  She has to reboot for it to work again....so rebooting works.  We can't have docs rebooting 3-4 times a day. Does anyone know of a permanent fix for this? Please help!!Desperate IT Guy!!

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).

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

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.

I hope I'm not making a mistake, I have a 6364-BV2, I assume it's multitouch (as long as the pen works, should finger touch work as well?) and I'm not able to use my fingers to touch anything on the screen.

I have xp tablet edition... Is it possible that my tablet doesn't actually have multitouch (finger touch capability) and only the pen is supposed to work? Thanks

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 is based on the Elan touchpad. Do you think the one finger scrolling is similar to the edge swipe? Maybe its not enable. Two or more finger scrolling is under multifinger configuration menu. But there is no scrolling option in One finger menu but only the edge swipe option.

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.

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?

On the Multi-touch model, will the 2-finger scrollling, 5-finger gestures, etc. work in every application or is it application dependent? Thanks much for your help.  

Answer:Lenovo staff says Outdoor Display is one-finger touch activated

I have the Outdoor as of yesterday, and it is not a touch screen.  It is Pen input only.  Can't speak for the multitouch models. Cheers,Gigs

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. I can't adjust the scroll speed in settings because that affects all other apps (in other words they'll become way too slow!) 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?

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

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. 
Any ideas out there?

I contacted HP Store about a pen to write on the Envy x360 13t-y000 CTO Touch Screen. Product # W8Q19AV & Serial # 5CD6482R7C received 12/2/2016. HP OEM installed Windows 10 64 bit and Office 365 Personal. I want to "write" using a pen or stylus in Office 365 2016 OneNote. This is the reason I got a touch screen and 3-in-1 with a tablet position. I want to take handwritten notes in OneNote during meetings and classes. HP Store recommended the Targus AMM01TBUS, HP SKU# JA12O3. Also bought Adonit Jot Pro, HP SKU# YP3969. I bougt both. They are Capacitive compliant. I've tried using both devices to write in OneNote and "writing" using Edge writing tool. The lines are spotty and leave many blank spots on the screen and I have to write very slowly. I tried both devices in laptop and table positions. Also tried in tablet mode which didn't allow any "writing." Totally satisfactory. Both work fine to touch bottons and icons on the screen but not writing on  screen. In OneNote, I noticed my palm left a partial palm inpression on the screen. As I understand it, Capacitive technology avoids this from happening. I've gone to Win 10 Personalization settings as a previous post back in Sept. 2016 suggested.

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,
I recently purchased an XPS 15 9560, Windows 10 and am having the trackpad dead zone issue (the pointer does not move until I move my finger about 1/4"at which point it has perfect response / tracking / precision). Each time I start to move the pointer using the trackpad I must go through the dead zone prior to the pointer responding normally. The dead zone appears to be a circle around the spot that I touch the trackpad.
When I disable the HID trackpad device in device manager, this dead zone problem is eliminated. Is there a way to access the trackpad driver registry settings to see if there is something I can change that will eliminate the dead zone?
Alternatively, is there a way to find out which trackpad brand I have that will allow me to try a different driver? I tried the Synaptics fix but I was not happy with the two finger scroll performance even after changing the registry settings.
Thank you,
Joe

A couple of things to try......
 
First, try doing a reset of the BIOS by following the procedure I have listed below.  This procedure can help at times resolve hardware conflicts that maybe affect the way the system performs.  Just do this......
 
1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Remove the battery. 3. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 4. Re-install the battery, plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
 
If the reset didn't resolve the issue then I would next suggest that you uninstall the touchpad driver, reboot the computer and then install a fresh copy of the driver.  A clean install is the best way to try and resolve driver related issues.

In W8.1 I haved triy to save again the data of my fingers but the software said that it is not possible beacause in the memory of the sensor are the data of my fingers.

I haved read that these data are in a non volatile memory on the sensor.

How I can erase this data?

Thanks

Answer:Portege Z30-A-183 - Erase Finger data in Finger Sensor

Hi

Yes the fingerprint information is not saved on the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) of your computer but on the certain chip.

Usually the fingerprint has to be removed using the Fingerprint Utility but if this will not work after the new OS installation, I would recommend you to go back to the previous state before changing the system and to use the fingerprint software which was used for fingerprint registration.

Details here:
http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/items/faq/386

But in case the fingerprint would not work even using the Win 7 version, I think that only Toshiba authorized service provider would be able to delete the already registered fingerprints.

I just upgraded my Yoga 2 Pro to windows 10 and my touchpad was acting crazy--for example, I could only get a window to scroll when it was out of focus.  I tried reinstalling my touchpad drivers, and it took about 5 attempts to get it working at a basic functionality.  However, this process caused an egregious change to basic scrolling behavior.  When I used to scroll with two fingers, I could stop scrolling by lifting one finger, and my mouse would return to being a cursor.  Now, when I lift one finger, it continues to scroll, and it will only stop scrolling once I lift the second finger.  So if I'm moving my cursor around, and I drop a finger down for just a brief moment, I won't stop scrolling until I completely remove my hand from the touchpad. I tried reinstalling the driver, I tried installing the Lenovo Windows 10 touchpad driver, (64-bit)

As I was using my laptop, a Y50-70 Touch, it turned itself off and now I've been unable to turn it back on at all. When I hit the Power Button it lights up for a second or so, as do the white LED indicator lights on the front of the laptop, but nothing else happens, the keyboard backlights doesn't turn on and there are no other sounds from the laptop, no fans, nothing. It does this with the power cord plugged and the battery in and every other configuration possible, nothing. I'v removed the battery and tried to discharge any additional charge left by holding the power button down for extended periods of time, I've also hit it at least 30 times or more. It doesn't do anything when the battery is put back in. I've tried this multiple times. I've checked every connector and they all seem perfectly fine. Im out of warranty so I can't send it in to be fixed. This laptop has been a disaster, the screen constantly flickers and the hinges are both cracked. I'll never buy another Lenovo.

Hello, I purchased a U310 Touch about 15 months ago that is no longer under warranty. Every time I try and boot the machine I receive no response from the machine. The power light turns on, the fan spins, the HDD turns on but the screen never displays anything. Even when I close the clamshell the machines power button stays lit and won't shut off unless I kill the power by holding down the power button. My troubleshooting steps have been:Reset RAMUnplug battery from motherboardWait for battery to completely drainBoot with HDMI monitor to see if anything displays (nothing would, so LCD panel should be good) With all of these, I cant get the machine to fully function. It feels like the machine is in total sleep mode, I feel like it needs a new motherboard. With my experience with lenovo I feel like this will be the last machine I ever purchase from them, this is unacceptable for a laptop of this age.  Does anyone have any similar situations? If so did you purchase a new motherboard and was it good to go? I'm very comfortable with ripping machines apart since I used to work on a help desk. I would hate to spend $100 on a part and waste all that time if it wont fix the issue.  Any help is greatly appreciated.Thank you.

I just got this computer about 3 weeks ago and I love it but there is one thing I find incredibly annoying and that is the app switch function on the touchpad. Whenever you accidently swipe left on the touch pad (for ANYTHING, whether I'm surfing the web, trying to rewind a video on youtube, or just messing with my cursor) the screen switches to another app. I find this function to be incredibly annoying since its on the left side of the touchpad and that is where our fingers naturally go to since we tend to use left-click. Why the makers didn't put this function on the right side (or at all) of the touchpad will remain a mystery. However, please help me get rid of this annoying function that keeps switching me to another app while I'm perfectly fine using the one I'm focusing on at the moment. Thanks

You can disable all the Edge Swipe functions by going to Mouse Properties, click on the Device Settings tab, select Synaptics ClickPad, press the Settings button, click on Edge Swipe, uncheck the Enable Edge Swipes checkbox.  But you'll lose all of: Enable Edge SwipesSelect the Enable Edge Swipes checkbox to enable a one-finger movement from the edge of the TouchPad in towards the center of the TouchPad:1. A swipe from the left edge to the center switches from the currently open application to the previously open application.2. A swipe from the right edge to the center opens or closes the Charms bar.3. A swipe from the the top edge to the center opens or closes the Application Bar.

So I came back from vacation and I had my PC on parts in my bag under my desk.So I came back and started to set it up and get all parts connected, all was set up and I booted my pc, it started and I got to windows but if I touched the case it would turn off, also I noticed when plugging in the adapter, it had a little lightning out there.By the way me and my cousin are using same adapter which has 4 holes and each of us uses 2 of them, the adapter we are using is plugged in into other adapter that is plugged in the contact, I didnt like the idea from beginning but I think this might cause a problem, let me know what you think.So after that if I tried to boot up the pc it would make the starting noise but then instantly shut down after 2 seconds.I looked over forums, and I think because I touched it, the electricity is messing up and that is why it was shut downing multiple times even if accidentaly touch it or even slightly move it not even with my hand.In the morning i detached all parts and started setting up again and making sure all parts are well connected and I did do everything precisely and after I click the power button this time it does not even start, there is not any sound, I checked my power switch button, all the cabels, everything is in, I noticed that when I touch the box though I dont know if im delusional or no, but something tickles my hand it felt like very little electricity but not quite sure, my box is metal though.Also I noticed when I replugged the ca...

Answer:My computer would turn off If I touch it

what country did you bring the PC from?
The UK uses 230V AC, the switch on the power supply unit may be set to 110V you need to change it to 230V, you may have blown the PSU or even the rest of the PC if it is set wrongly.

So.. why is it that everything in Windows 8 with a horizontal scrollbar is double finger scroll??? Except the home screen... I can do one or the other but consistency of it would be nice.

Is it a setting or is it one of those, "It is what it is..", kind of deals.
 

Answer:Windows 8 Double Finger vs Single Finger

Why slide to unlock with a mouse? Why the mix of horizontal and vertical scrolling? Why are buttons buttons sometimes and random bits of text other times?

I think it's because a bunch of different people made it. People who don't really talk to each other.

After using two finger scrolling, I lift 1 finger up so I can use the mouse pointer but for a second it continues to scroll instead of being able to use the pointer. Anyone have this issue?

I  bought a Thinkpad SL 410 installed with Windows 7 more than a month ago. SL 410 works well for me except for the touchpad. It always give trouble to me whenever I am try to type. This give me a very unpleasant experience for typing using the SL 410 keyboard. I will try to use an external usb keyboard when it is possible.  I try to use the Fn + F8 function but this doesn't work. I  try in the control panel "device and printer" but there isn't any setting or option for me to disable the touch pad. Can anyone consult me how to disable the touchpad? Thanks.

Ok so I bought my father a laptop a few years back and now he has passed it on to me. I am wanting to turn off the tapping on the touch pad but I just can't find an option to do so.
I have installed a fresh copy of Windows XP Pro so there could be some drivers missing that come on the recovery CD.
I have tried to track down any drivers but I can't find my Laptop anywhere. I ran the Toshiba program which is supposed to detect which laptop you have but it came up with nothing when I ran it and I also searched in the drivers section on the Toshiba site but my laptop doesn't even appear in the choices of laptops.

It is a Toshiba Equium and on the back it says Equium A60-173 and the model number is PSA67E-00700C8J.

So if someone can please tell me how to turn off the tapping on the touch pad that would be great. I can't turn the touch pad off completely because obviously I use it to control the mouse pointer.

I saw a post that said to press Fn and F9 but that did nothing, probably because I don't have the correct drivers installed.

Any help would be great.

Answer:Need To Turn Off Touch Pad Tapping on Equium A60-173

Hi buddy,

The tapping function of touchpad can be disabled in touchpad driver options. FN+F9 key combination will disable the whole touchpad so it?s another function.

The tapping function can only be disabled if the touchpad drivers are installed. If you install Windows from a normal Microsoft disk no drivers are installed and everything you have to install yourself. If you use the Toshiba recovery disk all drivers and tools will be installed automatically because it contains an image of factory settings. So recovery disk is more comfortable.

All drivers and tools that you need now can be downloaded here:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers
*Archive* > Equium > Equium A60 > PSA67E

As you can see you must only search in Archive to find the drivers ;)

Put Windows 8 on Thinkpad X220 and the touch-to-click is driving me nuts. I keep going into settings to uncheck that option in the UltraNav tab in Mouse Properties, and it keeps resetting itself after a reboot. Any ideas on how to make this setting stick?

My computer just won't turn on anymore. I tried almost everything on the forums about how to turn it back on. But it still won't turn on. So I took it to a local computer repair shop, they said my mother board is damaged. But they didn't look at the mother board, they just tested out the power cord and see if it gives off the right amount of amps. They said it does. So I'm lost and don't know what to do, this is my first computer and I use it for just about everything. If anyone has a tip or two that would be helpful.
