Touchpad - How to disable Touch to Click

New Dell Inspiron 5567.

In all of my previous computers from different companies but not Dell, "Mouse Properties" has included one additional tab on the far right of the tabs, which has a setting to Disable Touch to Click.

Mouse Properties on this laptop does not have that, nor can I find that simple but for me essential setting option.

How do I do that?

Hi,

Thanks for helping.

Unfortunately, nothing there that helps.

I'm one of many that seek a solution for this and dislike Tap to Click (revealed via an internet search).

RE: Touchpad - How to disable Touch to Click

One other question - All my previous laptops allowed one to scroll using 1 finger on the touchpad, whereas the default on this computer is must use 2 fingers.

I find this much more inconvenient.

Is there any way to allow scrolling 1 fingered using the touchpad?

Just remembered that I could also do a circular motion (small circle) and that would scroll the page - wasn't necessary to bring finger from top to bottom of touchpad, bring finger back to top of touchpad and repeat.

We at dell dont have that option unfortunately.Specifically for touch pad options we dont have any settings to change you can download touch pad manager from support.dell.com and try some of the setting from there.
