Step 1: touchpad settings
Click the Windows (start menu) icon at the bottom let of the task bar. Type in 'touchpad'. When the search results show up, click Best match, which is Touchpad settings.
Step 2: adjust cursor speed
In the Touchpad settings menu, you'll find 2 important options. The first option is the cursor speed. The cursor speed determines how fast the mouse icon moves over your screen. A high cursor speed means that the cursor icon performs the movements over the touchpad very quickly. Move the blue bar underneath Change the cursor speed to suit your own preferences. Try out on the touchpad if you like the cursor speed.
Step 3: adjust sensitivity of the touchpad
You'll find the second important option under Touch Sensitivity. This setting determines how much the touchpad reacts to your touches. A high sensitivity means that it will register even a light touch. Do you sometimes run into the problem that the cursor accidentally moves over the screen while you're typing? Then it's better to set up a low sensitivity for your touchpad.
