    Windows 10 Anniversary Edition removed touchpad settings

    1st time post,

    When I used my Surface 3 tablet for typing and had attached a WiFi mouse, the touchpad settings allowed me to disengage the keyboard's touchpad, freeing me from accidentally touching the touchpad while typing, (extremely useful with my butterfingers). I've noticed that the Mouse and Touchpad settings in the Anniversary Update have been greatly simplified to only one option for the touchpad. I really miss the option of being able to disengage the touchpad when an external mouse is detected. Can you bring it back?

    It must have been an anomaly. I restarted my Surface and, behold! all the options for the touchpad and mouse have returned, including disengaging it. I'm not sure what happened, but glad it is resolved.
