  1. I can no longer copy and paste using the touch pad


    Hello,

    As of 3 or 4 days ago, I can no longer copy and paste using my touch pad. Many other commands seem to have changed and I think I have figured them out. I believe it was after Microsoft did a system update on my computer that this issue started. Thanks for any help!

    :)

    Precision Touch Pad no longer available?

    Hi,

    I suggest you uninstall and reinstall the touch pad drivers and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows+X keys and select Device Manager.
    • Right click on graphic card and select Uninstall.
    • Restart the computer and try to install the driver from the manufacturer's website.

    You may also install available Windows Updates and see if it makes any difference.

    Please update us with the status. We will be glad to assist you.

  4. I can no longer copy and paste using the touch pad

    issues with touch pad gestures with a touchscreen laptop

    Thanks for the response.

    I have tried the steps you suggested. It showed no issues, except to restart my PC. At the point when I performed these steps, I didn't have the issue that I reported - namely, not being able to use touch-pad gestures. Maybe I should try this when the touch-pad
    gestures stop working.
