I am unable to turn of tap to click. Why can't you update the driver so that you can turn it off?!?

HP ENVY x360 Convertible 15m-bp1xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have tried all the suggestions I've found here for turning of Tap To Click and NONE of them worked for me.  I have it set to the lowest sensitivity but I want it OFF. There must be a way.  Please give me something different to try.

@terrysrose Welcome to HP Community!

Please identify if that's an Elan or Synaptics touchpad driver using the device manager, meanwhile, if you've got a synaptics touchpad driver use the below steps:


To check whether these features are available on your PC, head to Settings > Devices > Touchpad. (You can quickly open the Settings app by pressing Windows+i on your keyboard.)

Under Taps, enable or disable the “Tap with a single finger to single-click,” “Tap with two fingers to right-click,” and “Tap twice and drag to multi-select” options. The exact options available will depend on your PC. But, if you don’t see them, your PC doesn’t have a Precision Touchpad, and these options must be configured elsewhere.


Disabling tap-to-click in Windows 10's Settings app.

If you don’t see the options here, you can likely click “Additional settings” under Related Settings on the Touchpad settings pane.

Opening additional touchpad settings on Windows 10.

This will generally open your touchpad’s settings panel in the old Mouse Properties window.

On an HP laptop with a Synaptics touchpad, it took us to the “ClickPad Settings” pane. We could click “ClickPad Settings” to access the touchpad’s settings.

(You can also find these options by heading to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Mouse and looking for the touchpad options your laptop’s touchpad drivers added to this window. This is where you’ll find them on Windows 7 PCs.)

Launching Synaptics ClickPad settings on an HP laptop.

We could then entirely disable “Tapping,” or disable “Two-Finger Tap,” “Three-Finger Tap,” or “Four-Finger Tap.” Finally, we could save the settings by clicking “OK” twice.

Disabling tap-to-click in the Synaptics touchpad settings window.

Again, the exact options available, as well as the name of any settings here, will depend on your laptop manufacturer, how it configured your touchpad, and the drivers it used. While many laptops have Synaptics touchpads and will look similar to this, some have ELAN trackpads.

In some cases, some laptops may not even offer an option that lets you disable tap-to-click. However, most laptops do offer this option.


Let me know how that pans out,
