After using Lenovo System Update and updating the Elan driver to v.220.127.116.11, the touchpad settings were all gone. I saw that someone had luck on another model laptop rolling back the driver. In device manager, under "Mice and other pointing devices" find the "ELAN pointing device". Open the properties for it and choose "roll back driver". It picked v18.104.22.168. Once I restarted I now have the touchpad settings in the system tray and can turn off the "tap to select" which I hate. I am on Windows 10 Pro version 1903. I don't know if the Windows May update had anything to do with it or not. It is not on Lenovo's list of issues.

Welcome to community forums,
You may also use the Lenovo Vantage which is the updated app we use to run system update. You may download it here https://vantage.lenovo.com/?Source=social_eservices&Medium=LITHIUM&Term=eServices_&Content=20190526_....
A system restore would also help. Sometimes, the installation of a program or a driver can cause an unexpected change to your computer or cause Windows to behave unpredictably. System Restore helps you restore your computer's system files to an earlier point in time. You may follow the steps here https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht501548?Source=social_eservices&Medium=LITHIUM&Term=eSer....
