    Not a bug per se, but when I type, my palms automatically brush the Synaptic mouse and my cursor jumps all over the place. In Windows 8.1, I could tell the Synaptic mouse to disable itself when it detected a real mouse, but not in Windows 10.

    So, I have to type in what is a not very natural position for my hands.

    Anyone know of a workaround for this issue?

    Duct tape is too thin . . . Synaptic would feel right through it. :)

    Maybe you could "force feed " the driver from 8.1 onto 10. see here: windows 8 - How to enable Synaptics Touchpad While Typing (without disabling palmcheck)? - Super User

    Workaround is to manually disable it until next sign in from Touchpad Properties > Device Settings tab by clicking the Disable button:

    When done the touchpad remembers this until you sign off. This must be done again after next sign in / wakeup / reboot:

    Works for me, I'm rebooting / waking up the PC max once or twice a day so an extra 10 seconds is not a big deal for me.

    Thanks, Kari, but I can't get there from here. There is nothing I can find to refer to the Synaptics Mouse or Touchpad.

    I've searched my system and this is all I can find and it isn't like yours. Sigh . . . Windows 10 bugs-mouse.png

    The Synaptics tab is missing so I'd guess you don't have the synaptic driver installed/turned on. Check in device manager if it's at least installed. I can tell you Synaptics was one of the drivers that I tried to install on my ASUS laptop(tried to install Win8.1 driver because the laptop is a Win7) and it caused an unrepairable BSOD(hello reinstall).

    Hi, I have build 9926 installed. Every time I reboot I get a little window that pops up saying "update successful" even when I have all my updates installed. Also, are you guys able to keep your windows centered on your desktop, ie This Computer, Libraries etc. Mine are over all over the desktop after closing and reopening them. I'm a neat freak:) Thank you.
    See if Settings->System->Notifications helps

    On each app - press the advanced link
    Move the slider for Show notification banners to Off

    Nope, still no solution to retaining windows position.

    I agree with Cliff, your screenshot shows the properties for a mouse, not for the touchpad. Not only the missing tab but also the image of the device reveals that, compare here mine on left and yours on right:

    This usually means that the (Synaptics) touchpad driver is not installed. Check the Device Manager, I have not bothered to install the latest driver from Synaptics or my laptop's manufacturer's site because this old driver Windows installed automatically works for me:

    I am so happy I don't have your problems.

    This is under discussion in another thread. I have Dell computers, which all have "Alp" Touchpads. These can be disabled through their interface.
