Terrible Windows 10 Synaptics Touchpad Driver

2015-08-15, 8:41 AM

Hello, 

 

After upgrading to Windows 10, a new version of the Synaptics Touchpad driver for my X220T was automatically installed. However, I soon found that 2-finger scrolling is extraordinarily slow, even after manipulating some of the Synaptics control panel settings such as "scroll speed", and that "inertia" pointing has been turned on by default, which is very annoying. 

 

I have been able to hide the update for now (using the wushowhide.diagcab tool) even though hiding updates in Windows 10 is far more convoluted than in Windows 8.1 and have installed the Windows 8.1 driver from Lenovo Downloads instead. 

 

My question is, when will a driver from Lenovo or with appropriate fixes from Synaptics be released?

 

William

I need a new driver as well.  Because of the 'resizing mouse pointer' problem when pressing the middle trackpad button on my X1 Carbon 3.  (sucks to have to deal with this on a new ($$$) machine)

 

here's some links...   BTW I had this problem on both win 8.1 and win 10.

Actually, there is a new Windows 10 driver from Windows Update that works perfectly. It was automatically installed on my machine, but can be forced to install simply by removing the Synaptics software in Add/Remove programs.
