How do I enable my touchpad?

My laptop recently won't click when I tap on the touchpad. I believe it's because it's disabled but I can't figure out how to enable it, or what is wrong with it. Can someone please help me? I use this laptop for my school work and I really need it fixed.

Re: How do I enable my touchpad?

Hi,

 

A lot of HP touchpads have an area at the top left of the pad which when double-tapped will toggle the touchpad On/Off.

 

Regards,

Hi Burntoast98, Davidpk wrote "A lot of HP touchpads have an area at the top left of the pad which when double-tapped will toggle the touchpad On/Off."

 

No button is actually on the top left corner. You simply need to tap the top left corner as Davidpk specified. Hope this clears up the confusion for you.

 

Thanks
