I'm struggling to get the terminology right on this one. I have one of the more modern touch-pads: Dell Inspiron 15 (7548) and want to disable the "light touch" to click. I've previously been using a MacBook Air and want my Dell to behave in the same way (needing a proper hard click, not just a touch).

Is this possible? Everything I've found so far talks about disabling clicking via the touch-pad altogether, but I can't find anything specifically for disabling the "light touch" to click.

If "disable touch to click" is an option, it will be in the touchpad software. It is usually accessible from Control Panel -> Mouse or from the touchpad system tray icon.

If the option isn't present. You may try updating the touchpad driver/software.

  • I can't find that option and i'm not sure if that's actually what I want (would that prevent me clicking using the touchpad completely?) Jun 1, 2015 at 19:32
  • And there doesn't appear to be a driver for it (windows automatically recognizes it) Jun 1, 2015 at 19:33
