I recently got the Galaxy Tab S6 with the official keyboard cover and in general I am very happy. As far as I know there are two ways to left click using the trackpad: tap anywhere on the trackpad, or press down on the left half of the trackpad until it clicks. This is a good feature, except that the tap-to-click is way too sensitive. The slightest brush against the trackpad will often result in a left click and all of a sudden I am writing in some other random place in a document (it has happened three times already writing this post). Is there a way to turn off the tap-to-click functionality, or ideally reduce the sensitivity? If not, could this option be added to the settings?
Thanks for your post and I totally agree. The only thing that I've trained myself to do is to disable the touchpad just before I start typiing anything of significant length. This is easily done by higging Fn - Spacebar. This will kill the touchpad in its entirety, and you will need to remember to reactivate in if you need to move the cursor, use the mouse, "select" something by clicking or tapping, etc. Every week or so i get some kind of keyboard firmware update and I'm hoping to see a "tap sensitivity" setting, but so far nothing. So, for the moment I'll reply with the on/off process as described above.
I also miss the double-tap and holding so I can drag things around the screen, I miss it so much.
i found it under settings > general settings > mouse and trackpad on samsung galaxy tab s7+ 5G
Thank you so much,. Saved my day. Excellent feature to get the controllability of cursor speed.missed it.
You don't need to double tap, just keep keep/tap ur cursor over that object or text for a fraction of second move our cursor without lifting ur finger. It works flawlessly.
