Actually I wanted to write some notes on my 'Android' tablet

Name: Lenovo Yoga Smart Tab

Model: Lenovo YT-X705X

Model no. - ZA540019IN

Android version: 10

But I found that whenever I rest my palm in the screen, the screen becomes unresponsive.

So, I did some touch testing and found that the screen isn't registering any touch when I keep the palm rested on the screen.

So basically, when I keep the palm very lightly on the screen, it detects as one giant touch point, but if I keep the palm just like I keep on paper, then the entire screen becomes non-functional.

Please tell me a solution. Is there some option in setting that is turned on or is it not possible to fix this?

  • You don't mention what device make/model/OS you are using. Regardless, if you did a search on "touchscreen palm rejection" you would learn that it is a feature of some large screen device to avoid accidentally triggering unintended areas. Too large a touch area for a regular device means the touch screen driver designed for fingers is overloaded. At worst, use a mousepad/cardboard/insulator under your hand so that only the capacitive pen/finger is active Jun 18 '21 at 9:23
  • Oh! Thank you so much! Can I answer my own question?

  • You can always answer your own question, I would still update your question to include make/model/OS version in case there is some setting or to at least confirm the lack of a setting for future readers. Jun 19 '21 at 18:48
  • I have updated the question and included the Android version and model. I will include the answer after your review. Thanks!

  • Nothing I have found would indicate that device supports active pen or has capacitive palm rejection. As you have the device, feel free to write an appropriate answer. Jun 20 '21 at 5:51
