Hi @Badsha9,


Thanks for stopping by the HP community. A very good day to you.  I reviewed the post regarding issues with the left click on the touchpad not working correctly after a windows 10 update. I will be delighted to assist you here.

Superb description and stupendous diagnosis of the issue before posting. Kudos to you for that. 🙂

For better clarity and to assist you better I would require more information regarding this:

  • Did a power outage or surge occur before this?

For now, try these steps:

  • Run diagnostics on the touchpad by following the steps from this link: and run the touchpad tests under component tests.
  • If it fails, it displays a failure code. Make a note of it and contact HP phone support to get it replaced.

If the unit is under warranty, the manufacturer’s warranty should take care of it for you.

  • If it passes, then follow all the relevant steps that best describes your current situation from this link: (HP Notebook PCs - Using the TouchPad or ClickPad (Windows 10) and check if it gets resolved.
  • If the problem continues, backup all your important data and perform a Microsoft push-button reset by following instructions from this link:
