    Left Click & double tap not working in windows 10!


    Hello, I use a HP laptop & since the last few days I am not able to open any files or click on something since the left (main) key & double tap on the mouse pad are not working! Although I am able to move the cursor/pointer over the touch pad & the right click is working fine as well! I searched the entire internet & nothing seem to work! Could anyone help me please ? The last thing I remember doing that might have caused this problem (earlier everything was working fine but sometimes touchpad used to get stuck) is hitting the fn+f5 button that I read in this thread Touchpad not working for windows 10. - Page 3 - Windows 10 Forums Thanks!

    Hi, can you check you don't have Clicklock on? (see Control Panel, Mouse). How does a wired mouse behave?

    Look in Device Manager and check when your touchpad driver was last updated. Check it's not the date your problem started.

    Hello, don't have a wired mouse with me, but a wireless is working absolutely fine! And how do I check when was the driver last updated? Have attached the SS..Problem started around 8-10 days back!

    .. it's the Events tab you need- sorry, should have said..

    Ok, so it's a touchpad issue. That's useful clarification.

    Check the Synaptics 'Device Settings' tab, Tapping, and check Tapping is enabled. (Or equiv)
    Also check it's enabled (which presumably it is) - just noting your hotkey above.

    (Mine shows disabled if I use the function key to disable it- surprise..)

    Thanks, attaching the SS. Not able to find the Tapping tab though! Although everything important is enabled here. Click image for larger version.

    Touchpads have always been a problem. I use a Logitech Trackball now for my laptop. Helps for not getting finger cramps.

    Actually it is better for you. Carpal Tunnel and joint problems come with using a touchpad all of the time.

    The GUI does vary. No idea why.
    Note you've had a touchpad driver update very recently. You could try rolling it back. Disconnect your internet to prevent update while trying it.

    Humans should be re-engineered to be able to use touchpads.

    (Memories of androids extending digits with compatible interfaces).
    I once tried a program that moved the cursor following head movement. Stupid idea... (trying it, + the software).

    Incorrect. Touchpads have always been the worst thing ever designed. Not only bad for your hand, arm, wrist and shoulder. Also never work half of the time.

    I use a wrist rest that sits on the arm of my couch and use the trackball a lot better then I could with a mouse.

    I had to chabge, because I have shoulder issues.
