Acer 5100 - Touchpad tapping not working,

December 2016



Issue


I can only use my touchpad to move the cursor around but I cannot tap to open files /launch programs

Solution


Go to the Control panel
  • Then click the 'Printers and other Hardwares' --> Mouse
  • You can see the buttons tab on top of the box, click the 'Device Settings'-->
  • Settings-->Tapping
  • check the box saying 'enable tapping'
  • then press OK


Thanks to jam for this tip on the forum.
