Advanced Features in a Modded Version Driver

The Synaptics device driver provides a variety of advanced features for end users. Manufacturers can choose to mode and provide support all or a sub-set of these features. Below is an overview of selected advanced features.
  1. Touch Sensitivity
    The Touch Sensitivity feature allows users to get the best performance from a TouchPad. Users can personalize the touch sensitivity settings for their finger size and style of touch.
  2. Tapping
    Tapping on the TouchPad surface is usually quicker and more convenient than using a mouse or mechanical buttons, and gives the same result as clicking the primary mouse button. Tapping twice in rapid succession produces a double-click.
  3. Tap Zones
    The Tap Zone feature allows users to configure each of the four corners of the TouchPad surface to act as different buttons when tapped. Users can configure the Tap Zones to perform an action, such as launching an application. Users can also adjust the size of each Tap Zone.
  4. Virtual Scrolling
    The Virtual Scrolling feature allows users to scroll through documents, web pages, and so forth with a single stroke of the finger.
  5. Corner Taps and Programmable Tap Zones
    Corner taps and programmable tap zones allow users to assign button controls or other functions to an area on the TouchPad surface.

    The HandCheck feature guards against unintentional cursor movement and tapping caused by accidental contact of the palm or hand with the TouchPad. HandCheck allows the TouchPad to recognize when a user’s palm is resting on it or brushing its surface while typing. This helps prevent unwanted pointer movement or clicks.
