Hi,

 

Try the following.

 

Hold down the Windows key and press R

 

Into the Run box type regedit and hit enter

 

In the Registry Editor, navigate to the following

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Synaptics\SynTP\Install

 

Inside, look for a key named DeleteUserSettingsOnUpgrade

 

If this is present, right click the key and select Modify

 

Set the Value data field to 0 ( Zero ) and then click Ok.

 

Close the Registry Editor.

 

Make the Synaptics setting changes you require in the usual way and save them, then check if they're now retained after a reboot.

 

Regards,

 

DP-K

I'm running an HP Envy x2 15-c001 dx.  The Synaptics option does not exist for me in the regedit.  What should I do?  This is driving me crazy, as the screen in MS Edge goes from readable to 10% constantly.

 

VERY Irritating.
