Yoga 700 - Touch screen - a bit too sensitive

I have started using the touchscreen on this new Yoga 700 and I liked it at first, but I noticed that while scrolling, pages often open by accident...and it happens often. It ruins the experience.   How do I make it less sensitive? Should only open when i push , not swipe. I want to roll through the page and only select and open things i want to be opened.  Also, is there a way to not show the pointer finger icon? I dont really want to see that.  

 

It's weird that in the page, it is too sensitive, but when i switch tabs up top, i have to push harder to activate that and sometimes it doesnt work on first tap. Must need to change settings or something. Where do i go to tweak those settings?

Re: Yoga 700 - Touch screen - a bit too sensitive

Hi GM,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Forums.

 

We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing.

You can adjust the touchpad sensitivity using the following steps:

 

  1. Press Windows Key + X
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Click View by, then select Small icons
  4. Select Mouse, then click the furthest tab on the right (should be labelled Elan or Device Settings)
  5. You should have an option to adjust sensitivity in this menu.

 

I hope this information is helpful.

           

Regards,

Shashi Kumar

Re: Yoga 700 - Touch screen - a bit too sensitive

Thanks. I will try this tonight when i get home from work.

Just curious, why do you put the step in there that says View by small icons? what's the difference how i view the icons??

 

So the touch screen settings are under mouse settings? Arent they under pen and touch? I was talking about the touch screen , not touch pad.  

I will tweak the sensitivity.  Only problem is i want the tabs more sensitive and the screen stuff less sensitive. hmmm

Thanks. Yes, it is under Pen and Touch, not Mouse. Thank you.

Re: Yoga 700 - Touch screen - a bit too sensitive

There is nothing in Pen and Touch that can help my Touch Screen experience.  It is still too senstive and when i use the News App, news stories open when i dont want them to, when i just want to scroll through.  Need an option to reduce sensitivity so it is harder to open stories.  It opens them to easily. I just want to scroll.  Lenovo needs to examine this on the Lenovo Yoga 700 or Microsoft needs to add a sensitivity option to make it harder to launch stories or things.  Too many misopenings per touch screen session.

Re: Yoga 700 - Touch screen - a bit too sensitive

I am have the same problemm with y lenovo 500 touch screen. your solution could not help. me when I scroll on a google spreadsheet it scrolls to fast, it skips many rows even when I scroll very slowly.

I couldn't find a way to slow it down in the pen and touch settings.
