  1. Settings are missing for touchpad


    Previous touchpad settings used to have numerous choices to tweak yet currently's everything clear. Is there an approach to get to or recover those settings.

    Nothing for scroll direction.

    PC : HP 15 du2009tu

    Windows 10 2004

    Troubleshooter doesn't recognize any issue since I believe it is anything but an issue.
