Tap to click does work if I have it on, but if I’m playing a multiplayer game that’s all mouse based, and an accidental click would be irreversible, I turn it off for those games.
However, pressing on the trackpad seems to be “missed” by Windows sometimes. It seemed to be the worst right after bootup, to the point where I thought the “button switch” was defective. But when it decided to work again, it was consistent. Using the keyboard and actually moving the cursor was just as responsive as ever, with no lag.
It doesn’t feel like a hardware problem, at least not with the switch itself anyway. Pressing slightly harder on the trackpad (without being too rough/aggressive) did not trigger it either, but when it “decides” to work again, it’s just as consistent as it’s always been.
I’ve plugged external mice into it before, but I was having this problem with the external mouse disconnected. Didn’t install drivers for “extra functions / configuration” with any external mice, and the first time I had this issue was during a fresh bootup with the external mouse disconnected.
Any idea what might cause this? It’s not the DIY edition so I didn’t plug the trackpad in myself, and again, when the physical click isn’t wanting to work, the actual cursor still moves.
