    I'm having a similar problem with the same touchpad. I can get a menu from a right click (left click is my primary click) but on a right click I can't get the pull down menu that allows me to rename, delete a file or the other options I am used to in windows. Any suggestions?

    Same exact issue. Driver update turned on the 2 finger option which made the right click stop working. Was driving me insane. Thanks.
    Interesting.
    Another new "stuff" to learn.

    OK, I finally found the issue... There is a separate screen addrsssing "CLICKING" that I had improperly set the "2 finger" option. I actually disabled that because I never used it ... In doing so it turns OFF the ability to click on the Right button ... stupid ... and not very evident...

    Thanks !!

    Could please someone provide a Printscreen?
    It seems I am too stupid for this.

    I can see the Clickpad-Settings v19.4.3.166, second tab "Klicken" (Click).
    But what do I have to enable and disable exactly to activate the right click on my touchpad? (My touchpad has no separate keys, just a region where the lower left part works perfectly fine, but the lower right doesn't has any function yet).

    What do I have to set in the original touchpad settings page from windows 10?

    A screenshot? Well first there's this in Settings:

    then there may be a setting in your touchpad specific control settings, which, for example for Synaptics, have at least 3 variants, so if you have a Synaptics touchpad, yours my look quite different, and of course different again for others.

    Thank you very much @dalchina.This is how it looks on my (german) Windows 10 Pro. As you can see, the "Tap with two fingers as right-click" is not activated in the Win10 settings:Right Click does't work on Touchpad (Synaptics)-touchpad-win10-1.jpg
    And in the Synaptics Clickpad settings, the two finger click is also not activated.

    But none of this settings seems to control the one-finger-click-on-the-right-lower-corner behaviour.

    Hi, I've shown you the emulated rt click using the two finger tap or click.

    Here: (and I checked last time too)

    - there is no rt click option in the long drop-down list- which seems a little suprising, but there it is.

    There's also a setting under another tab that appears to disable tapping on the edge like that.
