Adjusting the touch pad on my Samsung Notebook

by ladysingsthblus / September 3, 2013 6:21 AM PDT

I bought this laptop in January and the touch pad is too sensitive but for some reason I've been unable to find where it can be adjusted in properties and other folders. Can anyone help me resolve this?

I'd ask in the CNET Samsung Forum.

There is so not so great advice about drivers but I can't tell if you have the touchpad app in the tray.

But if you are like most you find the thing to need more help such as a post it note covering the pad or something like touch freeze (free app that some like.)

There is no real design flaw here. It's supposed to respond to touch.

The only problem is, it's responding to a brush of my sleeve while I'm in the middle of typing and the cursor jumps to another part of the page.

Which is what touch freeze addresses.

"Annoyed when you are typing a document and accidentally the palm of your hand brushes the touchpad, changing the position of the cursor in your document or accidentally clicking on an option. TouchFreeze is simple utility for Windows to solve this problem. It automatically disables touchpad while you are typing text."

I love this little program! It solved all my problems, from sending incomplete e-mails, to writing absolute nonsense, to closing/minimizing windows that shouldn't be! This is wonderful. I've typed a whole half-page without the cursor skipping anywhere unintended! Thanks guys! I'm definitely gonna go and give a donation!
BTW, for you techie guys, I'm using an ASUS laptop with touchscreen and I have Windows 8."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
