You need to change the Following Registry Value:


Value = PressureThreshold

Change from the default dword:00000027
or 34.

to dword:000000f0
or 240 in decimal.

This is drastic improvment.

Thanks heaps,
Helps overcome the slight lack of sensitivity when using the included screen protector.
Now I get less accidental 'clicks' into my contacts when just trying to flick thru them.

In my TD there is only a string key, not a dword key.
So I changed the string name to "PressureThreshold Original". If the comming change is not working then you can easely change it to the original situation.

So I made a new dword key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\TouchPanel\PressureThre shold\

to dword: 240 in decimal.

And it works. Indeed better performance.

But now my question is; wat is the string doing with value 60... Iny ideas?

Does increasing the number make it more sensitive or less sensitive? I'm having trouble pressing the OK in the corner of the screen - is my screen faulty or "too used" or can this fix it?
