    Left click button no longer works when selecting the windows

    Suddenly when I turned on my machine, the left click button on touchpad will no longer work,right click works fine but no left click. This is also true for the touch screen. If I touch the window icon to open the menu, it changes color but does nothing.

    Things I tried:
    1-Connected an external mouse and it also doesn't work with left click.
    2-I tried a restore point from last week to see if that solved the problem. Still the same.

    I have no idea what I did to disable the left click button. Could have been caused by a windows update??

    Can anyone give me some ideas of where to start?
