Synaptics TouchPad is not reliable, or too hard to control. Driver = 220.127.116.11 RevD (11/9/18). Is there a simpler, easy-to-use driver? Or may I replace it with a driver from another source? Thanks.

Hey there! @John_Jones,
Have you tried checking with an external mouse? Does the issue persist?
Please share the product number of the PC to assist you better.
Try updating the BIOS and touchpad drivers on your PC and check if it helps.
You can update the drivers on the PC using HP support assistant.
Refer this article to know more information about using the HP support assistant. Click Here
Also, Try the steps recommended below.
Control Panel -> Hardware & Sound -> Power Options -> Change Plan Settings (of current selected plan) -> Change Advanced Power Settings -> USB Selective Suspend Setting -> Disable (both)
Control Panel -> Hardware & Sound -> Power Options -> Change Plan Settings (of current selected plan) -> Change Advanced Power Settings -> PCI-Express -> Link State Power Management -> Disable (both)
Pointing settings allow you to adjust how the pointer moves in response to your gestures. Pointing includes Sensitivity, Momentum, and Accessibility features.
To customize these settings from the properties page, click the Arrow icon to the left of Pointing to open the Pointing options.
The Sensitivity options allow you to adjust the responsiveness of the TouchPad to the pressure of your touch. Click to highlight Sensitivity.
Clicking the Settings icon opens a window that allows you to control how much finger pressure must be applied before the TouchPad responds.
If the issue still persists after trying out the steps try the steps recommended below.
In Windows, search for Command Prompt. In the search results, right-click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator. Then click Yes.
In Command Prompt, type sfc /scannow. Make sure to include the space between sfc and the /.
Press Enter and wait while System File Checker scans for corrupted files.
When scanning is complete, the results are displayed on the screen.
