    how to disable "Tapping" on a Desktop/KMM Windows 10 system

    I use a system containing a Desktop computer and a KMM (Keyboard/Mouse/Monitor) with a touchpad. In the past on Win XP and Win 7, I was able to place a Synaptics file in the "Program Files" and down load a Synaptics driver and it would add the "Synaptics Tab" to the Mouse properties and I was able to go in and turn off the "Tapping" for the touchpad. But for Windows 10 this does not work, So I am looking to see if anybody has ran across this or knows how to correct this.

    Is the KMM a separate device? Who makes it? Have you gone to the manufacturers support/download drivers site to see if they have a synaptics driver for this device?

    When searching the term KVM/Keyboard Video Mouse will be the common term. My keyboard doesn't have the touch pad so no problem with 4 computers connected by 1 USB and a VGA cable from each to the KVM. This KVM with USB replaced an older KVM with PS/2 connections that newer computers are leaving off.

    Disabling a portion of a device without disabling all of it can be problematic or not possible, also most desktops won't have the switch that Notebooks have for disabling the touch pad, as far as I have seen, anyway.

    The KMM (with a Touchpad) is a separate devise made by Rackmount Solutions, and I have contacted them, they have no answer. Like I mention, I could disable tapping on Win 7 with no issue, but not on a Win 10 system.

    Does this page show the KVM that you have?
