Welcome to the Forums Tenchi.

 

The behaviour of disabled touchpad when keyboard is in use simply because of avoiding unnecessary touch on the touchpad when typing.

 

The above symptom could be addressed by tweaking one of the following methods:

 

  1. Tweak your touchpad settings

Go to Control Panel and look for mouse and change touchpad settings from there.

 

2.  Effecting a change in the registry edit

 

Open regedit.exe as admin,and navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Elantech\SmartPad

 

Find the key named:

DisableWhenType_Enable

 

Double click and change the value to 0, close out and restart. Your touchpad will then be active while typing.

 

Note: Please be careful doing this method (2) and be sure what you are doing otherwise it may cause damages to Windows and not able to boot properly. 

 

Update us how it goes.

I couldn’t find an option in the touchpad settings to enable the trackpad while typing and I also tried the registry edit but that did not work either. Is there any other option that I can try?

That worked for being able to use both the touchpad and keyboard at the same time however the gestures no longer work so is there anyway to keep the gestures for the touchpad or will I need to reinstall the driver, but will re-installing the driver mean that I lose being able to use the keyboard and touchpad at the same time?
