Touchpad won't click when using "Use Trackpoint Only" in mouse properties.

2017-12-01, 19:11 PM

Up until the most recent windows 10 home Automatic update (version 1709), I've been able to use the mouse properites settings to turn off the touchpad to avoid accidental clicks and mouse movement, and instead use the trackpoint only.  I can select to still use "gestures" to scroll, zoom, etc, and use the touchpad to right and left click. 

Since the update, the left and right click buttons are unresponsive, unless I use the mouse properties to fully enable the touchpad. 

This seems like a software glitch.  When I downloaded and tried to reinstall the drivers from lenovo, the installation package tells me it can't find a synaptics device.  

Anyone else run into this?

If there are outdated, missing or incorrectly configured ElanTech touchpad driver, you may encounter this problem.

Go to https://support.lenovo.com/us/en to download the Elan touchpad driver for your Windows.
