A touch screen, or touchscreen, is an input device that enables you to interact directly with what is displayed, rather than using a mouse, touchpad, or other such devices (other than a stylus, which is optional for most modern touch screens).
If your device (ex: laptop or tablet) has a touch screen, you can adjust the distance (spatial tolerance) the pointer can move between tapping when you double-tap.
This tutorial will show you how to change the touch double-tap spatial tolerance for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.
Open the Control Panel (icons view), and click/tap on the Pen and Touch icon.
Perform the following actions: (see screenshot below)
- Click/tap on the Touch tab.
- Select Double-tab.
- Click/tap on Settings.
Adjust the Spatial tolerance slider left (small) or right (large) to the distance you want, and click/tap on OK. (see screenshot below)
You can double-tap on the door graphic under Test settings to test the current double-tap spatial tolerance setting.
Click/tap on OK. (see screenshot below)
You can now close the Control Panel if you like.
Open Registry Editor (regedit.exe).
Navigate to the key below in the left pane of Registry Editor. (see screenshot below)
In the right pane of the Touch key, double click/tap on the TouchModeN_DtapDist DWORD value to modify it. (see screenshot above)
Click/tap on Decimal, type a number between 0 (small) to 100 (large) for the double-tap spatial tolerance you want, and click/tap on OK. (see screenshot below)
The default double-tap spatial tolerance is 50.
Close Registry Editor when finished.
Either sign out and sign in or restart the computer to apply.
