    Uninstalling Windows TouchPad Software


    Hi Microsoft Community,

    I would like to ask a question about the TouchPad Driver that Windows automatically installed for me.


    So, I have been using Windows 10 for 5 months and the first boot it automatically installed a TouchPad Driver for me. I did not notice that and I installed another TouchPad Driver from Lenovo ( because I am currently using a Lenovo U41-70 Model 80J3 ). When I tried to uninstall my Windows TouchPad Software, it said: "If you uninstall this driver, some programs might not run correctly." So I thought that if I uninstall this I won't be able to use the Touch Pad again, neither Lenovo Touch Pad Driver. So should I uninstall Windows TouchPad Driver? Please help.


    Windows 10 Pro 1803 x64-bit


    Thank you!

    :)
