    Help, Pls: How to disable touchpad tapping on Transformer T100TA?

    Hi Folks
    Sorry if this is a old topic, but I've just gotten a T100TA unit and am also a noobie to Win 8, and can't seemed to figure out on how to disable the tapping function on the touch pad. Something I always do to prevent unintended file movements.
    Used to be able to find this setting easily on earlier Windows OSes...
    Despite having found the "Mouse and Touch pad" settings, can't seemed to locate switch on tapping..
    Did search here and found old topics on other models that tapping CANNOT be disabled, is that still true today for the T100TA?

    Appreciate any response, with thanks in advance.
    Cheers!

    You can also completely disable the touchpad altogether in favor of a mouse(or keyboard and touchscreen) if you so wish via the device manager.

    If you just want to disable the touchpad (not sure if that's what you're asking), you can do it with either ALT-F9 or FN-F9 (don't remember off-hand, and my T100 isn't with me at the moment, but I'm fairly certain it's FN-F9). The trick to making it work is to hit the buttons at *exactly* the same time. If you don't, it won't work.

    If you're asking about something else, this won't help.

    No you hold FN and then hit f9. No need to hit both at the same time o.O

    For me, and a lot of folks, it only works if you hit the buttons simultaneously. Believe me, I've had to fight with it to turn the touchpad off and on sometimes when I can't quite get the timing right. I'm glad that's not the case for you, though.

    Same here, for all Fn actions hold down Fn then Press relevant key

    I have the same problem. I want to turn off tapping on the touchpad. Nothing else. Just tapping. On every other computer I've ever had which has had a touchpad, this has been simple. But it seems my options are 'turn the touchpad off entirely' or 'do nothing'.

    When I am typing on the keyboard my thumbs flop around and my cursor jumps all over the screen, I select and delete text seemingly magically, and I get so mad I want to throw the darn thing under a train.

    Is there a process for this? Why is it so difficult?

    Thanks, Dan

    Search for Smart Gesture. It allows configuring the touchpad.
