Windows was Updated to the latest version (v2004) Jun 2020. Prior to installation everything was working fine.
After the installation Touchpad is not working.
-- I have checked in device manager, I didn't find touchpad devices in 'Human Interface Devices' (HID) or in 'Mice and other pointing devices'
-- Moreover, There are no touchpad drivers available for Windows 10 v2020 on support page. Causing it to fail while installing. (error message while installtion : The driver is not supported on this OS version 10.0.18363)
-- I have tried this trick as well but the results are same.: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Software-and-How-To-Questions/TouchPad-Driver-for-Windows-10-...
Is there any solution to the problem ?

@kunalR Here's a related post that may have valuable suggestions on updating the windows at this time: click here to view, in my opinion, it's best to wait for the storm to settle down, give it a good month or two before updating any new releases as the drivers for the same aren't available yet, as you've rightly described on your screenshot, that said, the only other thing you can attempt is, using generic drivers for your touchpad by uninstalling the existing drivers to check if that works:
Follow the below steps to get the same done:
Go to the Device Manager and select your mouse. Uninstall it and then restart your computer. During restart, your mouse driver will automatically be reinstalled.
- 1. Click on Start and type ‘Device Manager’.
- 2. Click Device Manager.
- 3. Click + sign next to Mouse.
- 4. Right-click on mouse entry and choose "uninstall".
- 5. Restart your computer.

Thank you for your valuable inputs regarding handling windows updates.
As you have suggested, installing generic drivers can be solution.
But the mouse is not getting detected by the system. (Check Screenshot)
Moreover, I have tried finding old drivers for the same in 'add and remove programs' as well as in 'Programs and Features' but they seems to be absent in both of the list.
Is there is any other way to check for old drivers ?

@ Thanks for your inputs.
Update regrading Touchpad drivers issue, I got update from windows for Biometric. After that The Touchpad issue seems to be fixed. However, my Biometrics were working totally normal prior to this update
I have checked with device manager as well. Looks like the windows is detecting the TouchPad now. And windows settings also shows 'Your PC has Precesion Touchpad'
So it looks like problem has been solved now.

I have a similar problem with HP Spectre x360. The Touchpad/Click pad works but I need the Synaptics control panel so that I change the settings. The Windows app to adjust sensitivity doesn't do anything.
My biometric device driver is v 22.214.171.1242 (22/08/2018) which seems to be a later version than that referenced above.
I am running Windows 10 v2004.
