Can anyone tell me if and how to disable tapping on my mouse pad.

it's Fn + F7 key, but for other makes I've no idea. Which brand is your laptop?

I have a Dell Latitude D600 and you can enable / disable all the various stick / pad functions independently using Control Panel / Mouse

For your Fujitsu the details are on the manufacturers web site.

Hi Keef66
I also have access to a Dell latitude 600 but cannot find any way to switch off mouse tapping. Can chage lots of other things but not the annoying pad tap. Does anyone like it???

our I.T. bods advised disabling it in an attempt to solve problems with wandering cursors and random character repeats or backspacing. Didn't work though.

Thanks guys looks like i shall have to live with it. On my old sony i just disabled tapping in control panel mouse.

I can disable it on my HP, but it re-enables on the next boot.

Just have to live with it, but it's a real pain.
