How to fix the Asus Zenbook trackpad

I have an Asus Zenbook for work, and its awesome. Small. light and fast!

Since day 1, the trackpad has been a huge issue. It didn’t perform like some previous laptops I had, nor like my Macbook. For instance when you single tap on the left or right buttons on the track pad, they register as single clicks. This messes things up from time to time. There are some other issue as well, my palm getting in the way and causing issues.

Anyways, I found somewhat of a solution to some of the issues. A personal blog provides some registry changes you can make to reveal more settings from the Elan trackpad program.

The only problem is that when you save your settings after enabling the registry keys and re-open the Elan application, the extra options are removed. So I’ve provided a registry file that you simply run each time.

Using the TouchPad blocker has made quite a difference, I suggest using this application.
