XPS 17 disable palm rejection

This question is answered

I went to the synaptics website and downloaded the drivers. Now I can't turn off palm rejection. The synaptics software doesn't have an option to turn it off. I remember I turned it on through the Dell touchpad software utility. How do I download that original software or turn off palm rejection?

I have already tried going to the "mouse" option under control panel and there is no option there for palm rejection.

  • Under input I only have 3 available downloads and none of them are for Synaptics drivers. I entered my service code correctly and it correctly identifies my L720X
