I have an older Dell Latitude E6510 laptop, all of a sudden the touchpad mouse does not work, have to use a wireless mouse. Using Win. 10.  Any help appreciated.

Check if there is a button around the trackpad or the FN key that will enable and disable the trackpad.
 
If not, search for Change Mouse Settings in the start menu and then press enter.
The settings for the trackpad are usually on the far right tab next to the Hardware tab. (this may vary for different brands).
Make sure the trackpad enabled box is checked, then see if it works.
 
If this does not work, search in the start menu for Device Manager and press enter.
Under the Your PC section, double-click Mice and other pointing devices.
Locate the trackpad and see if there is a yellow exclamation mark by it. Please post the results of all the steps in this post.

Go to Device Manager see if your mouse needs a driver update. If it doesn't, uninstall it and restart your computer. It will reinstall and hopefully work.

you can try the methods below:

 

1. Press function keys just in case

Depending on your mouse and keyboard model, try one of the following combinations to make your disappearing cursor back to visible on Windows 10:

Fn + F11, Fn + F9, or Fn + F3

2. Update the Mouse Driver. Once your driver is updated, check if the problem has resolved.

 

If not, maybe the latest version of Mouse isn’t compatible with Windows 10. So you need to roll back your mouse driver.
