    Thanks Hazel123.

    Both before I started the upgrade, and now in the light of forum comments, I've been reflecting on the pros and cons of the clean install versus the in-place upgrade choice.

    Short answer - the Synaptics tab is there under the mouse settings in Device Manager. Presumably because I did a Win7 to Win10 in-place upgrade so the apps and settings were all preserved.
