HP DV6T QE - Improve Touchpad/Trackpad

Gear: HP Pavilion DV6T QE, Laptops.

HP makes some really good touchpads but for some reason the DV6T QE default settings were not doing it for me. I changed a few things to make it better including removal of the two touch scrolling, enabled vertical and horizontal single touch scrolling, and lowered the sensitivity.

To access the touchpad/trackpad settings:
  • Hit Windows and type "mouse"
  • Click on "Device Settings" tab
  • Click "Settings..."

Why the changes?
  • Two touch scrolling is a bit picky about the position of your fingers.  Enabling the zone scrolling and making them a bit bigger works better for me.
  • The default sensitivity needs a bit of pressure on your side to work well.  If you lower the sensitivity you can get a smoother experience.

These small changes make a big difference in my user experience. There are many settings but try different thing and see what works for you.  Enjoy!
