    I thought I would update you on this. After playing with the settings on Windows 10, I have located the setting to turn off the tap-to-click setting. Follow these steps:

    On the right side of the bottom taskbar click on the NOTIFICATIONS icon, then click on ALL SETTINGS. Click on PERSONALIZATION, then THEMES. The last option under RELATED SETTINGS is MOUSE POINTER SETTINGS, select it. Then click on the last tab called DEVICE SETTINGS and again on SETTINGS. A new window will open up with the mouse pointer options. Uncheck TAPPING and you're all done. Hope this helps.
    I don't want any of the crap - multi-finger options, in particular, included. I just got done trying for the umteenh time to turn the dang things off - it hasn''t worked yet. I want my touch pad to move the cursor around. PERIOD. Facetiously, I say to myself that I have never wanted to kill anyone more than the idiot programmer who is trying to "help" me Hey, whatever floats your boat, but I should be able to turn the dang options off without going through 27 screens (exaggerating here). Did it work this time? Is that idiotic pinch zoom off along with the other stuff? Did my absolute best to rurn them off - apply, ok, etc. Time will tell. lol

    I was having the same problem and have solved it. My pc is an HP. I went to their website and downloaded and installed a new touch pad driver and now the disable feature is working properly.
    Ooh - maybe this what I been looking for! Also have HP

    I've had the same problem ever since upgrading my Asus laptop to Win 10. The touch pad had tap-to-click active and it was always causing menus to pop up - infuriatingly annoying! Initially, there were two tabs labeled elan. If I tried to use one of them, the computer would lock up. So, I tried all the solutions posted here and other forums as well - nothing worked. I even tried installing Asus Smart Gesture - as an administrator- but the install always failed at the end. What I ended up with was the default mouse driver and no option to disable tap-to-click. I was successful today and wanted to share what worked.

    Starting with just the plain PS2/mouse driver installed/active, I used the driver update tool. I let it search the web and then install the driver it found. It was very slow, but I just did other things while it ran. When the whole process was completed and I had rebooted, I navigated to the additional mouse properties window, there was now a new tab labeled Elan (only 1 this time). I was able to select the Elan tab and disable the tap-to-click feature on that tab. Yahoo! No more unwanted menus popping up. Life is just a little bit better now.

    Just prior to the success, I tried directly installing the latest Elan driver. It installed okay, but there was no Elan tab in the additional mouse properties window - thus no option to disable tap-to-click. I rolled back the driver and then did as I described above.
