  • Staff

This tutorial will show you how to change the touch double-tap speed for your account in Windows 10 and Windows 11.

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 how quickly you tap the screen when you double-tap.


Contents

  • Option One: Change Touch Double-tap Speed in Control Panel
  • Option Two: Change Touch Double-tap Speed in Registry Editor




Option One

Change Touch Double-tap Speed in Control Panel


1 Open the Control Panel (icons view), and click/tap on the Pen and Touch icon.

2 Perform the following actions: (see screenshot below)
  1. Click/tap on the Touch tab.
  2. Select Double-tab.
  3. Click/tap on Settings.

3 Adjust the Speed slider left (slower) or right (faster) to the speed 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 speed.

5 You can now close the Control Panel if you like.




Option Two

Change Touch Double-tap Speed in Registry Editor


1 Open Registry Editor (regedit.exe).

2 Navigate to the key below in the left pane of Registry Editor. (see screenshot below)

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Wisp\Touch

3 In the right pane of the Touch key, double click/tap on the TouchModeN_DtapTime DWORD value to modify it. (see screenshot above)

4 Click/tap on Decimal, type a number between 0 (slower) to 100 (faster) for the double-tap speed you want, and click/tap on OK. (see screenshot below)

The default double-tap speed is 50.

5 Close Registry Editor when finished.

6 Either sign out and sign in or restart the computer to apply.


That's it,

Brink,

Neither I nor the member @HansL can get either the Control panel method or the Registry method to have any effect at all in Windows 11.
Both continue to work correctly in my Windows 10 touchscreen computer.
Controls work in Win10 but not in Win11 - my post #5 - ElevenForum

Both Hans & I are on Windows 11 Version 22H2.
And my Windows 10 computer is also on Version 22H2.
I experimented with both double-tap speed & right-click speed-duration. I think Hans only tried the latter.

Any thoughts?


All the best,
Denis

Hello Denis, :alien:

Is there any 3rd party or OEM software/driver that may be getting used and overriding this instead?

The only customisation I've done is installing StartAllBack.
I'll look up how to disable it for a test.

@HansL - Have you got any tweaks to your Windows 11?

It'll be interesting to hear from others to see what they are experiencing on different devices.
