    Acer Aspire V3 - Windows 10 - Touchpad not working with new driver


    For the past few months, the right touchpad button does not work with the Windows 10 drivers. Windows 8.1 drivers worked fine. If I switch mouse settings to left handed, then the buttons work fine, but obviously this is awkward to get used to. I have rollbacked the driver to a very old edition and it worked fine, however then I had no synaptics touchpad settings so the touchpad settings could not be altered.

    19.0.9.7 is the synaptics version

    touchpad works fine on other user accounts

    Try uninstalling the synaptics driver from Device manager, right click Synaptics driver, go to Properties, change the compatible mode to Windows 8, then install the driver, it might work.

    Thanks for the idea - i'll try it now.

    Also - touchpad works fine on 'guest' user account. It's just this account, the main admin one that's broken.
