  1. Both Mouse and Trackpad suddenly starts deleting files


    So this has been my problem recently. Both my mouse and trackpad whenever I click something it automatically deletes it. I have tried resetting and checking for virus but nothing works. It's been such a frustrating week with me trying to figure out what is wrong with it. Also my windows is up to date and I also recently updated my BIOS but it still didn't fix the issue. Can someone tell me what's happening?

    Clean Install mouse / trackpad issue

    I recently decided to wipe my Laptop and do a clean install as my son had been uisng it for ages and it was very laggy and cluttered.

    It was on build 1903 (18362.959)

    I tried a clean install of latest build but had loads of issues with mouse and trackpad, so tried a clean install of 1903 using rufus.

    Wiped c:, deleted partition and recreated it before install.

    No issues with install, mouse and trackpad working perfectly during the installation process but once it actually completes both mouse and trackpad will freeze after about 2s, then work again, then freeze etc.

    I've updated the driver via device manager, still no luck.

    Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad - It's obvs internal but listed as plugged into PS/2 mouse port.
    Driver 19.5.10.75

    Rolled back to 19.3.31.31

    Still no luck.

    I've literally not done anything else since the install, other than repeat the whole process to get the same results.

    Any ideas?

    Both Mouse and Trackpad suddenly starts deleting files

    Separate profiles for mouse and trackpad possible?

    Apparently after a recent update, I don't seem to be able to keep separate profiles for mouse and trackpad on my HP Spectre 360. Even though I'm a lefty, I've always scrolled the trackpad with my right hand and used my left on the button. This is opposite of how I use the mouse (right button being primary). I used to be able to switch the mouse and leave the trackpad in the normal orientation, but no longer. Switching the mouse buttons automatically switches the trackpad too. It's irritating to have to switch the buttons every time I plug into or unplug from my USBC hub/monitor. I've attached a pic that similar to the old mouse setting screen that seems to have gone away, as well as what I currently see. Any suggestions?
