Dell Inspiron touch pad

  Digital 20:12 16 Oct 10

I have been given an old Dell Inspiron 8000 laptop. The touchpad accepts a tap as a left click but is far too sensitive. Is there any way of switching off the tap facility?

Go to Control Panel>Mouse you should then be able to change the speed of the touchpad.

Thanks recap but it's not the speed it's the "tap=left click" function that I'd like to switch off.

By chance I came acros the solution in CA magazine! I downloaded the latest Synaptic driver (2005)from Dell & there were all the options I needed.
