Windows 10: Latest Synaptics Touchpad Driver for Windows 10
I had similar issues with Win10 reverting to a 2006 driver... 126.96.36.199 refuses to install here on Acer 5750G either by pointing driver search to the download from device man or by clicking the direct setup in the download. Luckily? I have 16.2.10 saved and this Win8 driver not only installs but is functional in every aspect.
I noticed 188.8.131.52installs in a split second, whereas the linked driver takes much longer and works. HTH someone.
Thanks for the reply!
Do you experience any issues, anomalies or artifacts with the touchpad's clicking and pointing mechanism or does everything work flawlessly?
I am on 184.108.40.206 (Win10) and still having issues with touchpad clicks not getting registered plus also when I am using the scroll bar there are random dislocating cursor movements which prevents me to scroll properly. Needless to say, both of these are quite frustrating when I am using the touchpad.
P.S.: Are you also saying that Windows 10 Update does not try to use its own signed driver on your computer anymore and lets you use your own?
I downloaded as many drivers from Acer for this laptop as I could find and didn't manually update any just relying on Win10 to install newer versions. Even after clean installs I started with the same set of drivers...
When I found this thread I tried to install 16.0.19 but couldn't (see above). As I said it (the 2006 driver) worked perfectly otherwise.
You can only try see if it works for you.
I wouldn't be concerned with the fact it came from the Acer site... it was likely only made available as a service rather than include any specific Acer changes.
I'm saying that after installing the 2006 driver manually, the driver was never updated by Win10 despite keeping the OS fully up to date over probably 6-7 months.
I see. Thanks for the reply!
Well, for me Win10 on this Lenovo forces me to use this 220.127.116.11 from 29/05/2015 which is at least not from 2006 but if I get you right I could try to install a Win 8 driver. I am not sure if I would want to use an older driver. However should these issues of mine get more desperate I might as well try that.
HP Stream Notebook (Energy Star) 11-d015na. I upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10 and, had to do a recovery job about 2 months ago. Trouble is, the Synaptics Pointing Device Driver is (according to Windows Compatibility scanner, it's x32. I need an x64, which seems almost impossible to find! (And, that's using HP Forums). Could anyone please help, me being of limited tech. knowledge.
Thanks for this Brink. Had a hard time finding these .
It's synSmbDrv.inf but sometimes Synaptics package that file as a synSmbDrv.ini file (an INI file instead of an INF file).

No matter, copy the synSmbDrv.ini file and save it as synSmbDrv.inf file.
I had to do this with Toshiba based Synaptics drivers as the "generic" Synaptics drivers from the Synaptics support site don't work properly on my dad's Toshiba C55Dt laptop. Latest Toshiba based Synaptics Touchpad driver I can find is v18.104.22.168 from the TCH0321200A.exe file [for Toshiba & Dynabook laptops only].
Seems the new Creators Update build changed the drivers for touchpad because now clicking with the touchpad does not works, the cursor can be moved, but i cannot click anything.
Hi! New to the forum...I just upgraded my windows 7 original install on my Toshiba Laptop (3 years old) to the Windows 10 Home Preview Build (10130 was installed). Everything appears to be working EXCEPT my touchpad will not scroll.

I successfully upgraded yesterday from 8.1 and this morning I was looking at the new "desktop switcher." I was looking for an OSX style touchpad gesture to switch between them. I followed the instructions on the second part of Get Mac-Like Scrolling...
Just noticed that they updated their software August 12 2015.

Apologies if already posted. I did a quick search and didn't find anything.
Does this happen for anyone else? I don't like the two finger reverse scroll that windows 8 and windows 10 uses on default. I prefer that when I swipe two fingers down the page goes down, not up.
I go to the synaptic settings uncheck reverse...
