    Touchpad disabled after com0com install


    I just installed the com0com null modem cable emulator on my new HP Envy laptop running Windows 10 Pro version 20H2 (build 19042.572). The install seemed to go ok, and the two virtual com ports appear under Device Manager, but the laptop's touchpad is now disabled. As a workaround I'm temporarily using a USB mouse, which is functional. Any suggestions on resolving this? Thanks in advance.

    :)

    How to disable the touchpad.

    Hi Ralph,

    There are a lot of factors for this issue to occur. To
    isolate the issue, we have some questions for you:


    • Were there any changes made before the issue occur?

    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    If it is a tablet, the touchpad will not be disabled as a design. For more accurate information, we suggest that
    you contact your manufacturer
    for further assistance.

    Update us on how
    everything goes.

    Regards.

    • Right-click on HID-compliant mouse and select Disable.
    • Click Yes.
    • Check if the touchpad is already disabled.
