Regarding to this issue, now my touchpad is working well but even when I use low sensitivity option in touchpad control, my touchpad works when I am typing and it is extremely annoying now!

Thanks,

TAHA

I realized by installing Synaptics PS/2 port touchpad, the synaptic control panel returns! But, now I am facing another problem. Both of the windows touchpad setting and Synaptics control panel have control over my touchpad! 

Is there any way to stop windows changing my touchpad settings?

@Taha44 Greetings from the HP Community!

As per design, both windows and synaptics have control over the way your touchpad works, however, you can always decide which program you wish to use to make the necessary changes, you can either use windows or synaptics, its up to you.

 

There's no way of disabling the windows controls, but you can uninstall the synaptics driver to remove the control panel, the choice is yours and your alone.

Good luck.

 

I hope that answers your query,

Currently I have disabled my synaptics control panel and installed a light program for disabling touchpad when typing(there are many of such a program on the internet). Now, I do not have problem with my touchpad although it would be better if I could use synaptics instead of windows touchpad setting since it has many fancy options which are useful for reading books.

@Taha44 That's true, the internet does have a lot of apps, although not supported by HP, 

You could ignore the windows settings and just use the synaptics if you wish as well, as I mentioned its your call.

 

If you wish to thank me for my efforts, you could click on "Accept as solution" on my post as the solution should help others too.
