I have an Acer Aspire E1-572 running Windows 10. The computer has an Elan smart pad drivers. I recently updated to windows 10 but after it was installed, my touchpad settings changed.  I tried to change the settings to how they were before, now i can no longer adjust the sensativity or have the inertia " momentum" settings enabled. Those are no longer options listed on the driver settings.


I am disabled with limited mobiity and I rely on the ability to flick the mouse and have the cursor travel across the screen. Without these settings I am struggling to use the computer. Does anyone even know what I'm talking about? Please help.

Sometimes finding Win 10 compatable drivers can be a problem. The other fella posted a link that may help.

I been fighting with my touch pad for almost a month, trying to get it adjusted in. Sometimes it is too sensitive and other times it freezes.

Toshiba has W10 Elan drivers - and they've been having a lot of problems with the older drivers.  https://www.google.com/search?q=toshiba+elan+windows+10&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

We fix most of the Elan problems (at work) with installing fresh copies.

Good luck!
