    Won't remember my settings


    I am running on windows 10 64 bit upgraded from an 8. I working on an HP 15 laptop and I cannot get computer to remember my settings such as wanting to turn off the touchpad when I have the mouse plugged in but as soon as I restart it again it back to the way it was.

    I am also having this issue with the mouse settings not being remembered after a reboot. I also discovered today that my preference to be notified about installing windows updates instead of automatically installing them has been reset. Another setting that isn't remembered EVER is my preference for what browser to use when clicking on a link from an email. EVERY time I get the pop up asking me How do I want to open this, and I check the box to keep using this app, but it still pops up on every link I click. Granted, these are not serious issues, but they are serious annoyances and affect the usability of the OS.
