Windows 10: TouchPad problem

    Speculative suggestion- if you can see that in the registry a setting changes to disable the touchpad, I wonder if you could change permissions on that key, effectively protecting it.

    Otherwise, assuming something writes to the registry, you could try monitoring that key to find out what it is.

    You mentioned at one point that you had installed an older driver and it worked. Are you sure Windows did not update that driver? (You can try to protect drivers by hiding - disabling updates- provided you can intercept them).

    Oooo that sounds like a plan


    .... How would I go about even finding that key without destroying the registry and my laptop [emoji3][emoji3][emoji3]

    Before considering the registry, can you confirm if the driver had been updated as above? (Sorry, long thread...)

    Well one way- if you don't already know the key, and assuming there is one- would be to use a free utility called Regshot.

    Enable your touchpad.
    Make sure your PC is idle. Run Regshot, take 1st snapshot - this takes a little time.
    Disable your touchpad
    Take 2nd snapshot...wait...
    Click compare.

    You should get a HTML report, hopefully short. The changes should list the key.

    Currently using the driver that windows has installed on restart after I removed other drivers

    Point being, if you had one that worked and you didn't want it replacing, you could have blocked that by hiding the driver update.

    If keeping a certain driver would have helped with your basic problem, that is.

    I thought you had driver updates blocked by registry. Long thread, I could be wrong.

    I thought I had too

    We tried to block driver updates to see if this would sort the issue out.

    Currently if I remove all drivers using device manager and drive store windows installs a Windows driver but this works but doesn't give all functionality like pinch zoom and side to side swipe. If I reboot the laptop Windows 10 installs and Elan driver

    (Includes hide a particular driver update)

    Basic questions: (else this is getting nowhere, I feel) -
    1. Do you have a version of the driver that appears to work?
    2. When your touchpad has been disabled, has the driver changed?

    So I followed the relevant tutorial as suggested at the start of the thread.

    At the moment I have a working driver and the driver does NOT change when the touchpad is disabled

    Ok, now go back & identify the registry key that changes when your driver is disabled/enabled.
