  1. Option to turn off trackpad removed from settings


    So after a forced update, now I am no longer allowed to turn off the trackpad on my laptop. The option simply vanished from the settings menu.


    Why on earth would this option be taken away??

    :)

    Trackpad settings removed after booting

    I have a wireless mouse connected and I like to disable the trackpad when it's plugged in via usb. I go through all the steps to do this and it works fine, I do my work and shut down when I'm done. The next day when I power on, this setting has been reset
    I have to go back through the settings to turn the trackpad off. Is there anyway to fix this? It's annoying to have to do this everyday. It even resets if I put the laptop to sleep and do not fully shut it down.

    Keyboard and Trackpad Not Working

    Hi,

    To address your concern, we suggest that you restore your computer to an earlier point in time.
    Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore point was made.

    Since you're unable to use the keyboard and trackpad to log in to Windows 10, access the recovery environment and run system restore. To do that, follow these steps:

    • Use the installation media to access the recovery environment. If you don't have one, go to this

      link
      .
    • Connect the recovery drive and turn on your PC.
    • On the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot, and then select an option. If you don’t see the Choose your option screen, your PC might not be set up to boot from a drive. Check your PC manufacturer’s
      website for info on how to change your PC’s boot order.
    • Restore from a system restore point by selecting Advanced Options > System Restore. This will remove recently installed apps, drivers, and updates that might be causing your PC problems, but it won’t affect your personal
      files.

    Let us know how it goes after performing the steps.
