  1. How do I stop my touchpad driver from updating automatically?


    The latest driver seems to disable double-finger scrolling on my laptop and I have successfully re-installed the older version in the past only for the newer version to overwrite the older and cause the scrolling problem all over again. Can't find any option on the search menu nor does Googling help.

    Any ideas?

    I tried that as well. It wasn't in the list of things to hide. Only important updates were listed, no driver updates.

    This is what my screen shot looks like now...

    how do I stop windows 10 1903 from updating synaptics mouse driver

    I uninstalled the clickpad and my laptop restarted, now the clickpad is working and no way to make it stop. When I click on the clickpad in device manager, I just get an error saying it can't be found. I'll have to do a system restore, I don't know where to find the drivers to uninstall them or if that would make a difference. The updates that were are still paused. But now I'm back to just seeing a picture of the mouse with no way of turning off the clickpad.

    touchpad driver update

    Hi Chandrahasan,

    Incompatible device drivers are known to operate against the method that Windows 10 follows. We suggest that you run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter to scan your computer, identify the problem, and attempt to fix the issue automatically. To run the
    troubleshooter, follow these steps:

    • Right-click on the Start icon and select Control Panel.
    • Type troubleshooting in the search bar and click on
      Troubleshooting
      .
    • Click on Hardware and Sound > Hardware and Devices.
    • Follow the steps from the wizard to run the troubleshooter.

    If the issue persists, uninstall the touchpad driver, then follow these steps to check if the issue is driver related:

    • Right-click on the name of your PC at the top of the list of devices in
      Device Manager
      .
    • Select Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the device driver, or download and install the latest version from the manufacturer’s website.

    Let us know how it turns out.
