    Does anyone know if it is possible to set the pressure at which a tap on the screen with the pen is considered a click? I can change the pressure response curve in the Surface app, but I can't find a way to change what pressure is needed to be counted as a click - and changing that curve has no effect on the click detection threshold.

    To be specific, I want to be able to touch the screen much more lightly than is currently required in order to register a click with the pen. The tablet can detect lighter pressures, since they show up in the Surface app when testing, but just don't register as a click until they reach a certain pressure. What I want to do is decrease that required pressure level.

    Is it possible to do this? There doesn't seem to be any UI for it, but maybe there is a setting buried away somewhere in the registry, or something like that? I've spent a couple of hours trying to find the answer on Google, to no avail...
