Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. Let me assist you.

I suggest you to try the below steps to adjust the touch sensitivity of the system.

Pen and Touch settings:

  1. Type Pen and Touch in the Search bar.
  2. Go to Pen and Touch settings.
  3. Depending on your device, you may see a variety of tabs, such as Pen Options, Flicks, or Touch.
  4.   You can adjust the sensitivity of your touch device by adjusting sliders located in these tabs.  For example, to adjust the sensitivity of a double-tap on your touch device, on the Touch tab, tap Double-tap, and then tap Settings
  5.  Drag the sliders to change the sensitivity.  You can test your new settings by double-tapping the graphic at the bottom of window.


Calibrate the touch display:

  1. Type Calibrate on the Search bar.
  2. Tap on Calibrate the screen for pen or touch input.
  3. Select the Calibrate button, and follow the tool’s instructions.


Note: Cleaning the screen can improve touch sensitivity.  Most PC manufacturers recommend turning off the PC and using a microfiber cloth, available at most electronic stores.

Any barriers between your fingers and the display, including gloves, a protective case, sheet or film, or even water or lotion on your hands, can also impair touch sensitivity.  If any of these conditions apply to you, try testing the device without such conditions. 

Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.
