My laptop has an indintation in the upper left corner of the touchpad which normally may be double-tapped to disable/enable the touch pad itself, however, it has recently ceased working. I use it quite frequently as I write to avoid the complications of my palm on the touch pad as I type, however now I attempt to double tap this corner and it acts as if I am double tapping any other part and it is simply moving my cursor to wherever my mouse is hovering at the time and highlighting that portion of the writting. Essentially, it's acting as if this location on the touch pad is no more special than the direct center.
However, the scroll bar I use on the right hand side of the touch pad is working perfectly, and the pinch-to-zoom feature is flawless. In attempting to find help on the issue, I only find people trying to figuer out why their touch pad is disabled because they don't know about the upper-left trick.
This might, perhaps, be a problem with my computer itself as it is several years old, but I sincerely hope not. Any help at all is appreciated.
