Lenovo G50 Touchpad not letting scroll to highlight text in word to delete text in Windows 10

Hi. I'm working on a paper. When I want to use the touchpad to scroll to highlight text to delete it is not highlighting the text. It was working perfectly not too long ago. I'm sure it's something simple but I don't know what happened. Can anyone help me please?

hi DonnaR,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

When you highlight the text, are you doing a double tap & hold then drag to highlight the text or click & hold then drag on the touchpad to highlight? 

 

If it's the former then tapping might be disabled. Ensure that the Touchpad driver is installed and the tapping feature is enabled.

 

Drivers:

G50-30:

Touchpad Driver (Elan, Synaptics) for Windows 10 (64-bit)

 

G50-40 / G50-80:

Touchpad Driver (Elan, Synaptics) for Windows 10 (64-bit)

 

G40-45, G50-45, G70-35

Touchpad Driver (Elan, Synaptics) for Windows 10 (64-bit)

 

G50-70:

Touchpad Driver (Elan, Synaptics) for Windows 10 (64-bit)

Let me know how it goes.
