I have a Lenovo ideapad 330-15ikb with the latest Windows 10 update. It has an ELAN pointing device driver installed. I've been looking through all the mouse settings and I can't find any option to disable palmcheck or any setting relating to that. Is there any way to enable the touchpad while using the keyboard?

What keyboard are you talking about - the laptop's own keyboard or an external USB one ?

 

I cannot speak for the IdeaPad 330 but my wife has a 310 and they are probably not much different. On her's it is the F6 key to turn the trackpad on or off. On most laptops I have run into before this one it would the Fn key plus Fx, where x was a number chosen by the manufacturer. Lenovo seem to have accepted that this range of laptops are not going to be used primarily by gamers so they have reversed the priorities on the function keys.

 

If you now want one of the classic function keys - F5 perhaps, to raise the flaps on your Boeing 737 - it takes 'Fn+F5'. This really speeds up gaming !

I'm talking about the laptop's own keyboard. To clarify, the problem is not enabling the touchpad, the problem is that the touchpad does not work while using the keyboard. For example, when I'm holding down a key I can't move the mouse at the same time.

Have you tried updating, or installing, the Touchpad software.  Next up would be updating the BIOS.
