    Problems selecting areas and menus using the mousepad


    Hello,

    Since installing Windows 10, I am having a lot of trouble clicking on areas and loading menu options using my mousepad. For example;

    - When I go into the start menu, if I go to click on the Power option, it will not load the menu where I can choose to restart, shut down, etc. The menu will flash up for not even half a second and disappear.

    - Another example: when signing up for an account on this website, I was prompted to select a photo from a group of photos for validity but when I clicked on a photo it would not acknowledge this. I was also unable to use the mousepad to click on the tick option to confirm I agree to the terms and conditions etc.

    I've no idea what I can do so I'd be really grateful for any help. The mousepad worked fine before I updated to Windows 10.

    Thanks,

    Ally
