    Touchpad left click doing left click function randomly

    This just started recently on a 5 yr old Asus laptop, the touchpad is a single flat part with no buttons

    I restarted the pc and it was normal but then it just happened again, if i click the left button it does the right button function, right now if i simply tap the touchpad lightly without clicking i am able to get it to work fine

    Im not really used to tapping it, i do press it, well just now as im typing i decided to press it and its working fine again, but i was looking for a way to prevent it from happening again

    Hi, if you investigate your touchpad settings you will probably find many ways of configuring it - threre are many different manufacturers and variants of the GUI for touchpads.

    Assuming your touchpad is not physically defective, you might find adjusting a setting helpful. This may take time to explore if not familiar.

    Part of mine for example:

    You can swap left and right buttons - there is an option- (compare with a standard mouse to check what's happening if unsure).

    You might want to define the region of your touchpad used for a given function more appropriately.
