I followed this tutorial on youtube which helped me to move on my touchpad and type at the same time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UoBDyHSsyFw
However this did solve the problem but not fully and I would like to ask is there a way to press left click and press w a s d at the same time without me having to press a random button for it?

@John_doe22 Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that you would like to use the keyboard and mouse use at a time.

 

Normally, you just need to turn off SmartSense or PalmCheck the Synaptics control panel - however from what I've seen, this no longer seems to work for Windows 10 versions of this driver.

 

You may be able to get around this as follows.

 

First, download the Synaptics driver on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder.

 

Synaptics Driver Version 17.0.18.8

 

Turn off your wireless card ( should be f12 ).

 

Open windows control panel, open Programs and Features, right click the current Synaptics driver and select Uninstall.

 

When complete, restart the notebook.

 

When windows has reloaded, open your Downloads folder and run the Synaptics installer - when this has completed, restart the notebook again.

 

Open the Synaptics settings panel, disable SmartSense or PalmCheck and then check if the touchpad will now work with a keyboard key held down. 

 

If it does, turn your wireless card back on and use the utility on the following link to prevent Windows 10 from automatically updating the Synaptics driver.
