    No Touchpad support inside Hyper-V?


    On normal Win10 machines, you can access the Touchpad settings inside the Settings app:

    Start menu -> Settings -> Devices -> Touchpad

    However, inside a Win10 Guest inside Hyper-V, these settings do not exist. I searched but could not find any information other than this 5 year old reddit thread:
    Precision Touchpad strange behavior in Hyper-V - r/windows

    Does anyone know if there is a way to a access the touchpad settings inside the Guest, for example to configure different gesture swipes?

    No, the guest does not have direct access to the host's hardware. All devices that are seen by the guest are Hyper-V virtual devices. Your connection from the host to the guest is a 'virtual machine connection' that works like a remote desktop connection, so in the case of the mouse this is seen by the guest as a 'Remote Desktop Mouse Device'. Have a look in Device Manager and you'll see....
