No 'Reverse Scroll Direction' option for trackpad

HP Recommended
HP ProBook 455 G1
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So I have finally updated to Windows 10 and much to my annoyance my trackpad is inverted. After a bunch of googling I of course came across the optional setting that is supposed to turn that off. 

 

However, I have one problem. The tickbox that is supposed to turn that setting and put my trackpad back to normal simply does not exist. I have been all over my mouse/trackpad settings and cannot find it. Not on the main page, not in advanced settings, no where. 

 

Help would be soo much appreciated at this point.

System:

Bullet_Arrow_1.JPG  If you have not done so, Update your Mouse Driver

 

Windows 10 Mouse Driver:

HP ProBook 455 G1 Notebook PC > Synaptics Mouse Driver > sp72041.exe

 

The following Driver may also work for you:

sp75234.exe

 

NOTE:  Before you make changes to your File System (Windows 10), create a Restore Point:

 

  • Create Restore Point

 

Stop all programs:  Browsers, games, Applications, etc.

 

Control Panel > icon view > System > System Protection

Click (Highlight) your main disk (C) > Select Create a Restore Point

Solution > Touchpad two finger scroll (inverted)

 

NOTE:  Before you make changes to your registry > Open the registry as instructed > Create an Export of the entire contents.

 

Hold down the Windows key and press R

 

Into the Run box type regedit and hit enter

 

Once the Registry is open >>

File > Export >

in Export Range > CHECK / Click All

Enter a name for your Registry Backup >

If desired, change folder in which the backup file will be saved >

Click Save

 

Continue and edit the Registry as necessary.

Okay so I had this issue too but when I did some digging around the mouse and touch pad settings I found out that if you click the additional mouse settings link and go to the device settings tab under the touch pad device you click setiinngs right next to the disable option and you hover over the two finger scrolling option and a gear should be visible and uncheck the box that says inverted mouse scrolling. This did the trick for me.
