Old Frightful

TRL helpdesk-Laptop mousepad.

5 posts in this topic

Hi folks, bought a new Toshiba laptop around 18 months since. When I wanted to click/double click on summat, I used to simply tap the mousepad once or twice and off I went. Now when I try to do it it just doesn't register. The mouse still works fine so does anyone have a clue what's up? My lad may have turned it off without knowing I suppose.I've looked at the mouse section on control panel but can't find anything relevant although I'm not much of a tecchie.

Appreciate any assistance, ta.

It happened to me, without knowing what operating system you use, there is/was an icon by the clock regarding "touch to click". This was on Windows XP Vista though.

These instructions are for sensitivity of the pad, other settings should be in the same area.

WINDOWS VISTA AND WINDOWS 7 INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 1

Turn on your computer, wait for it to boot up and log in. While the sensitivity of your touchpad may be uncomfortable, it isn't impossible to use. If you find the touchpad is too cumbersome, try plugging in an external USB mouse.

STEP 2

Click the "Start" button, then click "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," then the blue "Mouse" link if you are using Category view. Click on the "Mouse" icon if you're using the icon view.

STEP 3

Click the "Pointer Options" tab in the new window. Adjust the "pointer speed" slider in the section marked "Motion." If you want your cursor to move faster with shorter motions of your finger, slide adjust the slider to the right. If you want it to go slower, adjust the slider left.

STEP 4

Click "OK." Use your finger on the touchpad to move the cursor around your computer's display. If the motion of the cursor is still too fast or too slow, click "Mouse" again, select the "Pointer Options" tab and try a different pointer speed. When you're finished, click "OK," then close the Control Panel.

WINDOWS XP INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 1

Turn on your computer, wait for it to boot up and log in. You can also use an external USB mouse with XP machines if you wish.

STEP 2

Click the "Start" button, then click "Control Panel." Click the icon labeled "Mouse." (If you don't see the "Mouse" icon, click the text on the left marked "Classic View.")

STEP 3

Click the "Pointer Options" tab in the new window. Adjust the "pointer speed" slider in the section marked "Motion." If you want your cursor to move faster with shorter motions of your finger, slide adjust the slider to the right. If you want it to go slower, adjust the slider left.

STEP 4

Click "OK." Use your finger on the touchpad to move the cursor around your computer's display. If the motion of the cursor is still too fast or too slow, click "Mouse" again, select the "Pointer Options" tab and try a different pointer speed. When you're finished, click "OK," then close the Control Panel.
