    Hey guys, I recently got a 2019 Razer blade stealth and my touchpad has been pretty inconsistent and weird. Clicking and dragging is a pain as a lot of the time, the mouse stops moving when my thumb is resting near the bottom of the pad and I have to lift my pointer finger constantly to get it to move again. And this is with two-finger gesters turned off. When they were turned on, things were worse. Things would zoom in and out and I would accidentally scroll, etc. Working with one finger works perfectly fine. It's just when I'm doing things that require a heavy amount of clicking and dragging and when I feel like resting my thumb on the touchpad that things get frustrating. This seems like a software thing, but I could be wrong. Anyone else dealing with this/has solutions.

    PS, I've tried the uninstalling and reinstalling drivers thing and things haven't gotten much better.

    I have this model laptop and also have issues with the touchpad, although they seem a bit different. My unit will stop touch input, becomes unresponsible periodically. It gets more pronounced when the unit warms up.

    Hi. Not exactly the same, but my touchpad wouldn't react to touch from time to time, mostly when gaming - I went to settings -> devices -> touchpad and changed the sensitivity from "medium" to "most sensitive" and the issue is completely gone for me, the touchpad works 100% of the time now. I think it was super aggressive palm rejection stopping it from recognizing input sometimes. Hope this helps you too!

    Thanks. I changed my setting as you described. A couple of hours in so far an it's fine. Will report back after further use to see how it's holding up

  5. seems that if you use left hand, two finger scroll works very well. But if you use right hand then it starts to bug

    I'm having the issues mothydula describes; most annoying is that two finger scrolling tends to zoom. So I was happy to see this hint.

    Ok, I changed mine to most sensitive (it was on high sensivity, second in the list). Whoops! Now things got even worse, two finger scrolling became very zoomy. Then I tried setting it down to medium (third in the list). Voila, that seems to do the trick, in my case. Thanks a lot for hinting.

    After some more time, I realized the above didn't really solve my problem with two finger scrolling. But after tweaking these two touchpad settings as well in Windows it seems to behave ok (ok-ish):

    Pinch zoom - unchecked
    Tap with two fingers to right click - unchecked

    I have the same issue and changed setting and pretty much removed any conveniance gestures, which is crazy for a high spec laptop, my work computer which is a simple dell has perfect scrolling, which is way faster.
    is this a harware issue and so i can return the laptop as it really does ruin the experiance and i have no confidence im not going to click anything. I've even had to rever to using the arrow keys for scrolling which are even slower!

    Any word from Razer on this?

    Many thanks

    Edit - now it seems im dropping keys when typing!!
