    Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16281

    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 . . . Click image for larger version.

    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).

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.

Other than the built in feedback app - because it has a bug for me on build 10166 and is just a blue windows with a logo that doesn't provide any means to do anything with it. On build 10166, I'm finding there to be many bugs. Some of them are: ...
