    Windows 10 Asus touchpad - Can't open folders/icons using double tap


    Hello guys, this is my first ever post on this forum. Thank you very much for taking your time to support me.

    So I've been using this Asus K401L with Windows 10 installed for over 3 weeks and it's been working perfectly. Yesterday, my touchpad started to act strange and I was unable to double tap to open folders/icons. It is very strange because, I can double tap and move the touchpad and select all, and even single tap works. It's just that, I can't double tap and open folders. I plugged in my external mouse and I had no issues.
    I tried repairing Asus Smart gestures, playing around with mouse properties, but nothing seems to work and I still can't open anything that requires double tap. I can even double tap on an icon and drag in anywhere using touchpad. Double tap to launch/open isn't working and that's the problem.

    NOTE: My laptop doesn't have Elan Settings in mouse options.

    Things I did yesterday : Using Eclipse, Changed "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Power Options\System Settings" and changed what closing the lid does to "nothing" and after some time I reverted it back to "sleep" and I installed COD Ghosts, which took almost 2 hours to archive.

    Hope you guys will help me to fix this issues. Thank you very much :)

    Hey just saw your post! If you're still having issues, go to the windows mouse settings via start -> control panel -> mouse, and lower the slider on the double click speed setting. I have mine set to around 3/5th and works absolutely fine for me!

    It's been months and only after trying your method I've fixed the issue. It was an obvious fix, staring right at me.
    Thanks a lot buddy, you rock!

    Had the same issue and thought I'd google it before taking a look myself! Found your post but saw no response. Had a quick fiddle around, solved the issue and thought the polite thing to do would be to let you know! :)
