The Touchpad is registering as Mouse in settings, cant scroll

Pavilion 15
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello.

 

I recently bought this laptop. HP Pavilion 15 -cc0xx. It runs on Windows 10 pro (64bit).

 

The problem I have is that I cant 2finger scroll with the touchpad. Not can I use any other multi finger fuction. I can only move the pointer, left click and right click. I tried reinstalling the latest driver from synaptics website, still not fixed.

 

Here's a screenshot of my Device Manager, Mouse settings, Touchpad settings, and Syanptics settings.

The exact product name is,  HP Pavilion Laptop 15 -cc0xx

 

I found this using HP Support Assistant. The support assistant was unable to correct my problem.

 

I have tried updating the windows as well.

@deadfist02,

 

I recommend you enable the scrolling option in the touchpad settings and check if it helps.

 

Here is how it is done.

 

If the checkbox next to Scrolling does not contain a checkmark, click the checkbox until a checkmark displays to enable Scrolling.

 

Pinch Zoom on the properties page

 

If you wish to show appreciation for my efforts, mark my post as Accept as Solution. Your feedback counts!

 

Cheers!

This is what is frustrating me. It should have all those options that you mentioned, yet it doesnt.
