How to turn off tap to select option on Elan touchpad.

Notebook 17t-by200CPO

I cannot find a way to turn off the tap to select feature on my new Notebook. It has a Elan touchpad and all the instructions are for Synaptics touchpads. I am online with a MS agent and she is struggling to figure it out as well. Does anyone know how to turn off the tap to select feature?

 

Thanks,

Rob

How to turn off tap to select option on Elan touchpad.

Hi @Snakeoil52

Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you. Let us try these steps:

  • Type Elan on the search bar and select the touchpad, look under settings to turn off on double tap
  • If that doesn't work, proceed to the next step

1. Open Task Manager. Terminate ETD Control Center,  ETD Control Center Helper, and ETDIntelligent. 

2. Run Regedit. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Elantech\SmartPad 

3. Scroll down to Tap_Two_Finger and Tap_Two_Finger_Enable. Change their value from 1 to 0. 

4. Go to <C:\Program Files\Elantech> and run ETDCtrl.exe, ETDCtrlHelper.exe and ETDIntelligent.exe. 

5. Now double tap should be turned Off.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
