    Trackpad Requires Extra Click/Movement


    The trackpad on my Acer Aspire M5-481PT laptop requires an extra click or movement to perform it's desired task. For example, if I want to close a window, clicking on the red x will just select it. I must then either swipe the trackpad or click again for the window to actually close. To follow a website link the same thing. The first click will only select the link and I then need to do another action to go to the page.How can I have my Windows 8 laptop act whereby one click will do the action such that I only need to click on the x once to close a window. This is how all my computers before operated. Is there some simple setting that I am missing?Thanks
