    intermittent Problems with Touchpad and Mouse buttons


    Hello all.
    I have a Dell XPS 15 and use a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.

    I have not had any issues until yesterday. I'm not sure when the last win update occurred

    Problem:
    - On Startup sometimes there us no function of keypad pr mouse buttons. However, the keyboard controls/shortcuts still work and I can move the cursor around the screen either on touchpad or mouse. After approx 5 minutes, this issue will disappear altogether and I get full functionality. However, again after approx 5 mins the problem will resurface.

    - This is an intermittent problem. I may be working for ten minutes and suddenly my buttons on touchpad and mouse will not click on folders/images, etc to open. Also when I go to open a new browser tab, the tab will open but when I click on it, the tab I was on will close (same with most browsers I've tried)

    I've tried uninstalling drivers and reinstalling etc. It seems to work better if I just use the laptop itself after reboot but eventually the same problem will happen. I cannot find anything through search engines for a fix or even a case like this.

    Any help appreciated.

    :)

  2. Mouse left button stops working intermittently

    I have seen several posts with similar problems, but none of them provide any useful answers. Basically, my left mouse button stops working intermittently. I can "fix" it by double clicking the scroll button, but it soon returns. This is the third mouse
    I tried so please do not suggest trying a different mouse or driver. I am using Windows 10.
