2018 HP Spectre x360 - Precision Drivers?

HP Recommended
HP Spectre x360 13"
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I followed a guide a while back that was posted on Reddit that allowed the installation of Windows Precision touchpad drivers, and I used them happily for about a year. 

 

An update a couple months ago broke those drivers and rendered my touchpad unresponsive until I performed a factory reset and reverted to Synaptics.

 

The experience of Synaptics drivers have basically ruined the experience of my laptop for me. The inability to use any gestures to navigate backwards/forwards and lack of customization for three finger taps/swipes is a huge step backward. On top of that, the tracking in general seems terrible after using Precision.

 

HP; from browsing around the internet, it's clear and obvious that your users want a solution. Every review of HP laptops from 2018 and earlier mention how terrible the trackpad drivers are. Please provide support for Precision drivers for your earlier laptops.

You installed a software which is not officially supported. Your HP machine uses Synaptics as default.

I’m fully aware the software that made my laptop usable isn’t officially supported. My hope was that you would recognize this was a mistake and correct it, as HP apparently has for their newer models.
