Adjusting P52 touchpad pressure and speed?

2021-01-14, 1:50 AM

I set the "mouse" speed to max, but it's still so SLOW!!!!  And I often have to tap it twice to actually work, it's HARD to get the curser in a search box.

 

Downloaded the elan driver, that made no difference.

 

My old W541 had a bad rep for the touchpad and it did suck, but the speed and tap sensitivity are great.    I remember setting up that stuff on my old machines, but find nothing for the P52.  Where can I adjust this?

Resizing a window is nightmarish, takes forever because I can't get it on that exact line.

 

The new keyboard sure feels great though.

So, instead of putting the mouse" speed to max, it's still so SLOW!

Please check that you have checked the Enhance pointer precision.

This will increase the mouse acceleration faster at higher mouse-speeds.

Thanks, I had that checked.

But I wasn't aware that the new machine was downloading all kinds of drivers and after a restart it's definitely moving faster. 

 

I wish I'd learned how to use the red thingie, moves super fast.  But I have little control over stopping. 

It's incredible how many problems I encounter reinstalling on Win 10 Pro after having upgraded my old notebook to Win 10 Pro from Win 7 last year.  Don't quite understand that.   Some apps just don't work right ...

 

And so miss the old ways of adjusting / training the trackpad.

Don't know if it's my computer or the forum here, but I can't figure out how to thank Naheed. Move the curser on the thumbs up and it changes, but clicking doesn't work. Is my brain fried?
