I must change the sensitivity of my netbook's mousepad!

I love my netbook!!! The one thing that is driving me bananas is I'll be typing and just accidentally brush the mousepad. Next thing I know the cursor has been placed somewhere else on the screen, and I'm typing there! Arggh!!! Up until now, there hasn't been a way to change the setting of the mousepad, but Dell has a driver update that will allow you to change the touchpad sensitivity- Hooray!! As always, pictures will follow when I feel like it- Enjoy!

Start by clicking the following link:



You will be asked if you want to save the file

From CHTechTips


Save the file to your Desktop

From CHTechTips


Run the file when the download is complete
Click Continue
Click OK to unzip the files- do not change the location
Let the unzip do it's thing until it is done
Next the driver will install itself
Accept the agreement
Click Finish when done
Restart the computer when prompted
Once restarted, Click Start,
Control Panel
Click the category Printers and Other Hardware
Then click Mouse
The Touchpad Control Panel will open
Click Touchpad Settings


From CHTechTips

Drag the glider under Touch Sensitivity to change the sensitivity of the touchpad



DO NOT use the setting "Disable Touchpad if USB mouse is detected". Your SmartBoard will not work.
