Hardware Drivers :: Disable Right Click Area On Synaptic ClickPad?
Dec 13, 2013
I just recently purchased a windows machine and I would like to disable the right click area of the trackpad. Since you can use two fingers to right click, I don't see any reason to have that area designated for that purpose.
So I was using my computer the other day and suddenly my clickpad started tracking very poorly. Before it used to be accurate when it was tracking my finger, however now it jumps around the screen when I move my finger around on it and it takes a full second before the clickpad translates initial input to the mouse. If I put my finger on the trackpad and start moving it the mouse will jump to the location where the pointer should be and will not show the track that the pointer took. I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it and I am having the same problem. I have restarted the system multiple times and it has still not resolved the issue. I cannot click on anything due to the insane inaccuracy of the trackpad.
Am using windows 8 pro with the synaptics drivers on my sony vaio, but they are taking ages to load in whenever I reboot/startup my laptop.
I was wandering if there are any tweaks I can do to make it load into my system tray quicker. I dont have many things loading at startup so I cant see what the problem is. I would like it to load in first rather than last.
I was updating my drivers, and had wanted to update my Synaptics driver. I had removed the older version of Synaptics driver (because I was required to) and wanted to restart. My computer restarts, and I try to install the latest version of the Synaptics driver, it doesn't work. It says "install failed." I have tried multiple times.
I updated win8 pro for synaptic, windows instruct me remove previous driver to install the updated driver, after so and after restart I could not use now my KB and pointing device, I can't login to win to reinstall drivers...
I bought myself a Radeon HD 7770 a few months back to replace an old GeForce 9600GT. A few weeks after installing the AMD card, I was going through my programs cleaning out old files and decided to remove all the Nvidia stuff. I removed the drivers and stuff and upon reboot, my computer would no longer boot to the desktop. I ended up having to use system restore to get the computer working again...
Fast forward to yesterday. I upgraded from Windows 8 Pro with Media Center to Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center, and I started experiencing the same problem listed here: "Win 8.1 desktop right click takes 15 seconds!" I tried the same solution that was found and it did not work for me. My guess is it had something to do with the Nvidia driver software still being installed on my computer. So I again attempted to remove the drivers. At this point I couldn't even remove the Nvidia software as nothing happened when I pressed the uninstall button. I ended up having to reinsert the Nvidia card, and reinstall the drivers, in order to uninstall the drivers. After I restarted and reinstalled the AMD card, the computer, like before would no longer boot to the desktop. All I would get was a mouse pointer that would appear and disappear every couple of seconds and a Number lock button on the keyboard that would be turning on and off at the same interval. If I reinsert the Nvidia card the problem goes away, but obviously I don't want to keep the old card in my computer.
My question is: Why would the computer boot with the Nvidia card when the Nvidia drivers are uninstalled and yet not boot with the AMD card when the AMD drivers ARE installed?
I have a new Dell Inspiron 15r as of this Christmas, running Windows 8. I ran the upgrade to 8.1 but I still have a problem with my cursor wanting to "hover click" on links or browser tabs, as well as being stuck in the down position, when I'm not even pressing on the touchpad left button. I end up selecting an entire region of stuff while moving the cursor across the screen.
I can't figure out what to change or configure in Control Panel, or is it in the Dell Touchpad configuration utility?
In Control Panel/Ease of Access Center/Make Your Mouse Easier To Use I have unchecked "Activate a Window by hovering over it with a mouse." Still happens.
Anyways I've been having trouble since I got this laptop and basically my f1, f2 keys are like for screen brightness etc however if I press the FN key then it works how I want it to. How I can disable the FN function key to work opposite? also how do I set hot keys?
A couple days ago, somehow, I turned on 'scanning your device' and now I get a black screen every time I plug my phone into the USB port to charge it. how to disable this 'feature'. It's really annoying because the connection is a bit worn, and it keeps connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...connecting and disconnecting...
I don't want anything to happen when I plug the phone into the USB port.
I cannot disable driver signature enforcement I have using CMD, by bcdedit.exe , still not working (bcdedit /set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS & bcdedit /set testsigning on ) even after running CMD as Administrator
Also, i have disable driver signature enforcement by setting ( general-advanced setting- etc) Still no effect
Windows 8. In windows 7 when I switched from dual display to single display all windows stayed exactly where they were so when I switched back to dual display everything was were it supposed to be (i.e. chat windows + music player on side display)
In windows 8 each time I do that (switch from double display) all windows from second display are moved to the main/only one and upon switching back they are not moved back which is...
Can I somehow make windows 8 to behave like win 7?!
I am running Windows 8.1 Pro X64. Recently I have noticed that Notification Area Icons for some apps have disappeared.
A reinstall or a repair install sometimes brings them back but then they disappear after a while, and usually after the next reboot.
Have checked forums for the affected products and the only solution offered there is reinstall or repair install. I very much doubt that this issue is down to the products. It is almost certainly a Windows problem but of course Windows Tech Support offers nothing other than the usual banal references to largely irrelevant "how to" articles.
My "Notification Area Icons" was not working right, so I opened it and checked the box "show all icons and notifications on the task bar" and it did.... Now my task-bar is crowded with all these icons and so I must put them back. The problem is, I have tried clicking all over the task bar but can't find the tool/option to do it.
I just installed mouse software on my 8.1 Pro laptop. The software starts every time I start my computer and shows an icon in the taskbar. There is one very annoying thing that it does, when I first login to my computer the notification icon for the mouse software pops up a window saying that it's running:
I opened Customize Notification Area to see if I could turn off notifications BUT keep the icon there (so I can right-click it and open the software).
I noticed there is no option to "Show Icon And Hide Notifications".
So the only way i can keep that annoying popup message from appearing every time I login is to hide everything. But then, as I said above, I won't be able to right click the icon and start the software.
Is there a way I can show icons but hide notifications?
I noticed when I was looking at the custom notification area window that there were entries for programs that I no longer have on my machine:
