I have a problem with my laptop and the touchpad. There's "something" that handles a 3-finger tap in the touchpad and causes the touchpad to be enabled/disabled (buttons keep working). This was unbelievably annoying, because at the beginning I didn't know what was happening or that this 3-finger tap was the actual shortcut for this. It was especially infuriating when this shortcut got accidentally pressed while playing games. After like a month of yelling at the screen and looking for answers, I discovered this is a "shortcut". Simply tapping the touchpad with 3 fingers would deactivate it, and doing the same would activate the touchpad again.
I want to get rid of this shortcut, but I have looked for it in the Synaptics driver without finding anything like this. Also in the control panel I don't see anything that looks like the culprit. I don't even know who is responsible for handling this shortcut, which brings me to ask this question here. Does anyone know where this shortcut comes from? Any way to disable? Any way to track the culprit and obliterate it from my laptop?
This is using a Samsung np550p05-s05cl model, with Windows 8 and latest Synaptics drivers.
