    How To Disable Tap-to-Click on Windows 10


    I recently updated/upgraded my Windows 8 laptop to Windows 10 operating system. I would like to know how to disable the tap-to-click touch-pad feature in Windows 10. It was easy to do on 8, but after searching through the settings on 10 I am unable to locate that setting. Thank you.

    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.

    No "Tapping" around here

    There's no Tapping box to check. Seriously stupidest idea ever to accept a light touch as a click.

    I was able to follow your scenario as far as "Mouse Pointer Settings".
    Then the last tab is "Hardware" rather than "Device Settings". I tried hardware tab - no "settings" so double clicked on "Properties". I found lots of stuff under ASUS Touchpad Properties, details tab, Property Device Description downarrow. Unfortunately nothing looked like a way to disable tapping. Any sage advice? Perhaps Win10 was updated after you tested? I just installed Win10 this afternoon. Thanks for your help. I too hate tap-clicking. - Rich K

    I solved it! honshad07's instructions are correct to 'mouse pointer settings', from here the last tab seems to now be named 'Elan device' Go here and click 'options', under 'tapping' there is an option to disable tap to click. Hallelujah!

    The name of last tab (and what is in it) depends on the manufacturer of the driver.

    I've turned off Tap To Click like a dozen times. Every time I reset my computer I have to turn it off again. So far my opinion of Win. 10 is low.

    I'm glad you found a solution. Apparently ASUS is behind on this. Their Elan driver still has no way to disable tap clicking. I will contact ASUS and see if there is any joy to be had there.

    As a work-around, just max out the speed on the double-click option, so at least you'll have fewer accidental tap-to-click until Asus gets it together.

    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.
