    Touchpad Click Lock

    I bought a brand new Windows 10 ACER Aspire E5 series laptop computer back in February. I have not had any issues at all with it. But today I have this very annoying issue. When I lightly tap my touchpad on links instead of opening the link like it had been doing previously all it does is highlight the link and drag it all over the screen. The same issue happens when I try to switch tabs. It locks onto the tab and I have to click again for it to release. This is very annoying when all I'm wanting to do is switch tabs.

    My touchpad is one of those multigester ones and I have turned off the following options
    • Allow double-tab and drag
    • Use a two finger tab for right click
    • Use a two finger drag to scroll
    • Use a two finger pinch to zoom

    I don't know why it started doing this today. I also have clicklock turned off under additional mouse options.

    Here's a screen shot of the issue I'm having. I lightly tapped to click on the link Friday Night Lights Clips and instead of it opening the link it highlights the link and I have to us my left click button to get rid of it.

    I restarted my computer among other things and the problem seems to be fixed.
