  1. Touchpad icon not on taskbar and not working


    When I right click the taskbar/taskbar settings/turn system icons on or off, and I turn on the touchpad icon the icon does not show in the taskbar. Revisiting that setting shows it has been turned off. The touchpad will not work although its driver in device manager states that it is working. I have used Fn F5 to turn the touchpad on or off and this Is not working. Why is this happening please.

    :)

    System Icons on taskbar

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    Are you referring to the clock system icon on the taskbar?

    If so, I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:


    • Click on the search bar on the taskbar.

    • Type system icons.

    • Under Turn System Icons ON or OFF, turn On the Clock and check with the issue.

    Hope it helps.

  3. Touchpad gestures NOT working

    Hi Abuzar,

    Your touchpad drivers might be outdated or corrupted. I would suggest that you update the touchpad driver. Follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key and X together and select
      Device Manager.
    • Locate the touchpad driver.
    • Right-click on the touchpad driver icon and click Update Driver software.
    • Click on Search automatically for Updated driver software option.

    If the driver for Windows 10 is not available, download and reinstall the latest touchpad drivers from the manufacturer website.

    Keep us updated.

    My touchpad isn't working properly

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delay in reply.



    I suggest you to roll back the drivers and check if that helps.

    Try the following steps:


    • Right click on the start icon and choose device manager

    • In device manager, right on the touchpad under Mice and other pointing devices.

    • Click on Rollback under driver tab.


    Hope this helps.
