    Deleted Elan touchpad from Device Manager

    Hey guys,

    I updated to windows 10 and when i am gaming i prefer to put my touchpad(from Elan) OFF but i couldnt it kept making me move in different positions in the game when i accidently made contact with it . The shortcutkey of disable/enable didnt work since i updated to windows 10 apparently it was a drivers problem so i went to Device Manager and clicked on the touchpad everything was greyed out so i deleted it from my device manager. I restarted my laptop and the touchpad didnt work which is good but i also want to use it sometimes just for the fun of it.

    Later when i went to the new touchpad driver from Elan i downloaded it and tried to install it and it said i need to go to configuration screen -> programs and delete it from there. I didnt knew this... did i do something wrong now? i am about to delete that old Elan driver program from programs right now but i fear that i shouldnt have deleted the touchpad in the device manager...

    Old program from Programs- I cant delete, a pop up shows up that says i am about to delete it but it wont... gonna restart laptop.

    Edit: When i try to delete it doesnt do anything... is it because i deleted my touchpad from Device Manager and thats why it cant be removed or something? or did i actually did the right thing?

    UPDATE: After restarting my touchpad worked again so i assume it appears back automatically into the device manager. I could finally delete my old elan touchpad software now from Programs, i will need to restart but i cant be asked now since i restarted 2 times already. 2morow i will see if i can enable/disable my touchpad.
