  3. Touchpad Left- and Right-Click Not Working

    Hi Bill,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.



    Please answer the following question:

    Did you log in to the system using a standard user account or an administrator user account?

    In order to make changes in Device Manager you MUST be logged on as an administrator.

    After logging in to the administrator Account, I would suggest you first try updating the driver.

    Follow the steps to update the Touchpad drivers:


    • Press Windows key + X key and click Device Manager.

    • Find the relevant Touchpad driver and right click on it.

    • Select Properties and then go to the Driver Tab. Click Update.

    • Restart the computer and check.
    If this doesn't solve your problem, you have to uninstall and then reinstall your driver in compatibility mode.


    • Press Windows key + X key and click Device Manager.

    • Find the relevant Touchpad driver and right click on it.

    • Select Properties and then go to the Driver Tab. Click Uninstall.

    • Restart the computer and check.
    Now go to your manufacturer's website and re install the driver in compatibility mode.

    Hope this helps. Please respond if you have further related queries.

    Regards,
