    Why did the update for Windows 10 change the user settings for the touchpad driver?


    The configuration for Windows 10 was just finished and tested. The update yesterday apparently installed or enabled the Windows 10 Touchpad driver instead of continuing to use the manufacturer Dell Touchpad Driver. Why does an update change the user configuration? It also added a bell for an unknown trigger. This is very distracting and disrupting. How can the orginal configuration be exactly restored. Please note that this is an unnecessary loss of your time and resources.

  2. touchpad driver update

    Hi Chandrahasan,

    Incompatible device drivers are known to operate against the method that Windows 10 follows. We suggest that you run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter to scan your computer, identify the problem, and attempt to fix the issue automatically. To run the
    troubleshooter, follow these steps:

    • Right-click on the Start icon and select Control Panel.
    • Type troubleshooting in the search bar and click on
      Troubleshooting
      .
    • Click on Hardware and Sound > Hardware and Devices.
    • Follow the steps from the wizard to run the troubleshooter.

    If the issue persists, uninstall the touchpad driver, then follow these steps to check if the issue is driver related:

    • Right-click on the name of your PC at the top of the list of devices in
      Device Manager
      .
    • Select Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the device driver, or download and install the latest version from the manufacturer’s website.

    Let us know how it turns out.

    We would suggest that if getting the specific driver for your device, and making sure that the driver is fully compatible with the latest version of Windows 10 doesn't work, we suggest contacting the manufacturer of the device to get the steps in modifying

  4. Why did the update for Windows 10 change the user settings for the touchpad driver?

    Windows update keeps replacing ALPS Touchpad driver with a Synaptics driver.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Appreciate your interest in using Windows 10.

    I suggest you to uninstall and delete the previous drivers and the latest drivers for the touchpad and install the required version of the driver from Device Manager by following the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X and select Device Manager from the list.
    • Expand the Touch pad driver.
    • Right click on the driver and click on update/install.
    • Select the required version from the on-screen prompts.

    And for the problem with the installation of printer drivers, I suggest you to run the Windows Update troubleshooter by following the steps below:

    • Type “Troubleshooting” in search box and press Enter.
    • Click on “View All” option on top left pane.
    • Select “Windows Update” from the list and follow the prompts for troubleshooting.

    Hope the information is helpful. Feel free to
    write to us for any other assistance with Windows, we’ll be glad to assist you.
