I have this annoying problem with a Vista computer that I can't figure out how to fix. Looking for some help.
My daughter has done something to her laptop on which the touch pad, upon a single or double click, opens a box such as what you get when your right-click the touch pad. Doe it on the desk top, does it when you try to use a short cut to open a program. Can't even type in a search engine box because this box is in the way, and it comes open every time you try to position the cursor.
I bypassed the problem by plugging in a mouse; however, I have to get the problem fixed.
Only thing I can figure is somehow the touch pad software/driver has become corrupt. The left button acts like the right button but it takes you to a "open" screen as if you're single-clicking, then ask you if you want to "open" something. There is a string of other options in the drop down box as well. Stuff like "properties."
I seem to recall having this issue on another lap top a few years ago, but it was intermittent. This is CONSTANT! I've checked the properties of the touch pad. It's says it's in double-click mode but it sure doesn't act like it. Driver is good, no conflicts. I don't get it.
Start/Windows logo, Settings, control panel, mouse options. you may have it set to left-handed. change it to right-handed config...
under Button Configuration. uncheck the box.
