    right click on my synaptic touchpad doesn't work

    would be great if the right click on my synaptic touchpad worked. Was fine until I moved from win7 to win 10.

    If the touchpad works (not defective), and only started the behavior since moving to 10, then I would guess it is a problem with the touchpad driver.

    It could be due to the wrong driver being installed, a corrupted driver installation, or a driver conflict.
    Since the generic Windows 10 touchpad driver seems to work well with Synaptics hardware for most folks, we can start with a bad driver install.

    The first thing to try is to go into Device Manager and uninstall the touchpad. If asked to remove the driver also, do so. Then restart the laptop and the touchpad will be reinstalled with the same driver. Test.

    Otherwise, go to the laptop manufacturer's website and find the most recent driver offered there for your touchpad. Try and install that driver and test.
