Hi, I recently noticed that I have some sort of touchpad error on my laptop where I can't click on anything by tapping my finger on it, I have to use the button below it. I can still use my touchpad to scroll around and stuff, I just can't click on anything. I was wondering if there is anything at all I could do (maybe there's something I accidentely changed on the control panel) or if this is some type of malfunction beyond your scope..system information is shown below (I just copied like everything I didn't know what you wanted lol). thanks a ton!!!!

Hi nnn23. Welcome to BleepingComputer.

Have you had a look in Control Panel/Mouse/TouchPad settings? That's where they are in my Acer Home Premium laptop.

Cheers

Yes I did, but I couldn't find anything that would solve the problem. It said that the system was working properly... it might be some hardware error but I'm just double checking with u guys

The only other thing I can suggest, is to see if there is an icon in the system tray. Right clicking on that gives me the option to tap/click on the touchpad.

If the icon is not in the systray, you will find the option to show it in the control panel.
