How can I disable tap to click on touch pad

Question

How can I disable the tap to click on the touch pad??? Last Windows 10 upgrade turned it back on and the normal method for turning it off has gone away. It is very difficult to get anything done when even the slightest accidental touch on the touch pad is interpreted as a mouse click.

Depending on your Laptop, you need to download controls software for your touchpad. Try to goto your Laptop's manufacturers website (Dell, Lenovo, etc...) and look for the software/driver for your Touchpad. Synaptics is normally the primary provider there. Once installed, you will be able to disable your touchpad 100% from the settings.

      Hi,
      Looking at windows 10 backup there is two options file history and system image. I understand what they both do but is it usual to have both file backup and system image on the same external drive?
      Thanks

      Hi,
      I would like to fink out if it is possible to control when updates are downloaded in windows 10. I know there is some control to schedule update times, but I'm specifically referring to downloading. In South Africa, Internet costs are quite high, so being able to schedule a download to only happen between midnight and 6am, would be SUPER great!!!! Up to now, Windows 10 is great, but this would really help a lot of people.
      On a second note, adding  a "Install now" feature would also be great considering the latest bug which could delete files, this would give users time to backup, or completely ignore the update.
      If this doesn't exist, is there any way of sending this request to Microsoft? And will they even consider it or give feedback?
      Thanks

      My application which is in Startup folder is not started after restarting the computer. I find some solutions on internet like 
      1. Hkey_Local_Machine\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\ System\ Set EnableLUA to 0 (See at right side - By Default it is set to 1)
      2. Set User Access Control settings to lowest level

      When i do this settings, my application which is in start up folder, application runs when machine restarts every time.. But this setting inhibit the operation of some MS programs like MS-Edge, Photo-Viewer, Skype Video etc. Resetting to default "1" and restart PC would resolved it. We need to look for better solution to this "security measure" by later Windows version.. Please guide me with better solution

      I HATE HATE HATE WIN 10.  It forces automatic upgrades and everytime it does this it reactivates my touchpad even though I have chosen to disable the touchpad when a usb mouse is being used.  Someone please help.  Is there any way to permanently disable the touchpad? Is there any way to permanently stop upgrades from downloading?
