Windows 10: Action Center opens at every second click & other touchpad problems

    Action Center opens at every second click & other touchpad problems


    Hello :)

    My primary problem is that the Action Center opens at every second click. I think the problem migth be with some touchpad settings, but I haven't been able to identify them.

    The touchpad started acting all weird all of a sudden. I have tried to restart the pc of course. That didn't help. I also ran a virus check, but at least nothing was identified. I have also tried to update the touchpad driver with no improvement.

    Besides the Action Center appearing all the time, the touchpad stopped responding to taps (the way I usually click).
    I was able to borrow an external mouse. I had no problems with the mouse, but the problems remained with the touchpad. After disabling the touchpad and using the mouse for a while, the problems disappeared. However, there was still some weird behavior with the touchpad (some settings had changed, for example ClickLock had been turned on). The touchpad does not work the way the settings indicate in Settings > Devices > Mouse and touchpad > Additional mouse options > (Dell Touchpad >) Click to change DellTouchpad Settings.

    Now the problems from before borrowing the mouse have reappeared, and I can't get access to a mouse at the moment.

    My pc is a Dell XPS 13.

    Any advice will be much appreciated :)
