Consider the following scenario: open up the "Control Panel;" browse to "Hardware and Sound" -> "Pen and Touch" -> "Touch" tab; under "Touch Actions", select "Double-tap" and click "Settings..." Change the Speed setting slider from “Fast” to “Slow” or from “Slow” to “Fast”. After you change the speed setting, double tap at different rates and you will notice no difference between fast and slow speed setting,” Microsoft stated in KB2018874. “This’s an issue with Windows 7 touch settings. This setting doesn’t have any effect after you change it,” the company explained. Microsoft promise that a fix is coming, although an exact delivery method has yet to be decided. Microsoft could simply push an update via Windows Update, or integrate the fix into Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7. “Microsoft is aware of this issue may produce a solution in an upcoming release or service pack,” the company added.
