Vista Home Prem. Toshiba Satellite A205 screen minimizes often for no reason!!Help!!
No matter what I am doing the window that I am working in minimizes when I click on a button just right. For example if I click near the edge of a button or on the scroll bar the window will minimize itself. I is VERY annoying I hope someone will respond, as I saw that someone else posted the same problem back in July but got no replies. Please someone help me out and don't leave my hang'n. :huh:
Thanks!
Wendy

I have researched this and every instance occurs with Toshiba.

This may be why:
Toshiba had "tap zones" enabled on the track pad..
If you tapped the corners or dragged in from the corners it did things like
minimizing windows.
You need to go into the mouse properties and look in the advance synaptic
properties and turn them off.

You can also uninstall the Toshiba-Synaptic software in Add/Remove Programs, restart computer and let Microsoft install the touchpad driver/software. This should fix your "corner tapping" issue. and still give full touchpad/tapping/vertical scroll functionality. (see below thumbnails)

I have a Toshiba Satellite,
If you don't want to uninstall the Toshiba Synaptic Touchpad driver, there should be an icon down in the bottom right corner of your screen,Right click properties then have a fiddle with the settings.I know that you can change the points on your touchpad which let you scroll and stuff.
Maybe this will help as well.
