    Problems with touchpad and desktop


    I just started using a Toshiba laptop with W-10. I hate it. Anyway, the touchpad is way too sensitive. How do I adjust that? I have been all over the personalization etc and can't find anything. It's barely useable because it keeps doing things I don't want it to.

    Also, for no reason my webpage will expand from 90% (which I set as default) to up to 300%. Obviously I did something. I think it's related to the touchpad but I don't know what to do. It's driving me nuts.

    This laptop has been sitting around for 3 years and I haven't used it because I hate W-10 so much. But my trusty 2007 laptop with W-7 is about to die so I have no choice.

    Thanks.

    Hi, you could start with looking for a setting like these:

    Precisely what options are available will depend on the particular driver and what type of touchpad (or clickpad) you have.

    Some support 'palm check'

    Have you tried an external mouse?

    See the part number (P/N) or the exact model at the back of your laptop and then visit the manufacturer's support site. You can download the touchpad driver which also includes a utility to configure it. Try lowering the sensitivity of touch. If the utility is not available for Windows 10, select 8 or 7 or Vista. It will work OK.

    Please also specify the exact model of your laptop (see my specs for comparison) and quote a link to its drivers page.
