Having problems with your Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook ?

My touchpad will not respond when I tap it anymore. I have to use the left button. I used to be able to tap or double tap the touchpad and it would act like the left mouse button. All of a sudden it stopped. Can someone help restore the tap function for my touchpad?


Answers :

On the bottom bar by the clock, if your computer is newer there should\015\012be a small icon that controls your mouse. Simply right click on it and\015\012check the box "tap to click" or similar. Hope this helps!
Please rate me if i am helpful.
Thank you.

If you have Windows Vista then go to Control Panel then go to Hardware and Sound. Click on Mouse and then click on Device Settings. Then Click on Settings and then click on Tapping. Finally check the Enable Tapping box and you should be in business. Good Luck!

I've had the acer one for 2 weeks. While using it today, the single and double click functions of the touchpad stopped working. The touchpad still moves the arrow around the screen and the left and right buttons next to the touchpad function normally. Did I inadvertantly do something to change the touchpad function? There's nothing in the small manual that came with the computer to cover this situation. Thanks for the help. Carl
