  1. HP Laptop - Windows 10 - Settings options for touchpad missing


    Settings for my touchpad are awfully limited. On the previous laptop that I owned there was an extensive menu for enabling and disabling touchpad gestures. A search on this Windows Support forum yeilded a topic that directed you on how to update drivers within the Device Manager settings menu. I updated the drivers and restarted my laptop and below is a print screen of my settings following the driver update. As you can see there really isn't much of use there. When I click the link on the right "Additional settings" the traditional Mouse Properties window appears but within that window no settings for the touchpad. I searched this board once again but turned up empty handed. Is there a download to patch the missing menu items or perhaps a code that will bring them back through Registry Editor? Thank you for your help in advance.

    I want to disable touchpad on Dell laptop


    Hello everyone,
    My laptop's touchpad works and I don't want it to, because I prefer a mouse. It's a Dell Inspiron 11 3000 series on windows 10 OS.

    What I have tried that hasn't worked:
    • start<settings<devices<mouse & touchpad<additional mouse options. This opens a window called Mouse Options which has 5 tabs up top, none of which involve the touchpad. The Hardware tab shows 2 devices: the mouse itself, and the USB. No touchpad there.
    • windows key+x<mobility center. No touchpad to be found.
    • various function keys. No options for touchpad on/off.
    • device manager<mice and other pointing devices. Again, only the mouse and usb show up. It appears the touchpad is working without a driver, which is a little spooky.
    Any other suggestions? I could try downloading a third party driver, but that seems like a step in the wrong direction.
    Thanks

    Missing option to keep touchpad off when a mouse is plugged in

    I`ve been reading several threads on this topic and have tried the different solutions offered, but so far none has worked.

    I have Win 10 /64

    Under Touchpad, there should be an option to turn off the touchpad when a mouse is plugged in, however this option is missing. I tried the suggestion to download the drivers for my computer, an HP laptop, which I did, specifically the most recent for the
    touchpad, mouse and usb devices, but the missing option did not appear.

    That suggestion is in this thread:
    here


    The suggestion to roll back an MS update from 2017 which is posted in an earlier thread is too outdated for me to try.

    The only option I have at this point is to go into either the mouse or the touchpad settings every time I turn on the computer and deactivate the touchpad. This is not a very convenient workaround and I would like to know how to get his option which is
    supposed to be there.

    Thanks.
