the Synaptics touchpad driver cannot prevent the touchpad from treating a tap as a click. Is there some window that is not seen that actually can set it or can there be any other method?

I have tried using Synaptics for that same purpose. It never worked. If you go to Dell Support if you're running a dell, the pointing stick driver will enable you to control "tap to click" preferences.

  • it simply works. go to the dell support website, type in Pointing Stick, and there will be a list of drivers to download. There is a current one good for "all OS 32 bit or 64 bit". I chose that one and installed and it worked. Dec 9, 2009 at 16:41
