synaptics touchpad no settings menu

ZBook 15u g3
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, i have a problem with my hp zbook 15u g3.

When i am using the touchpad and press any key on the keyboard it will interrupt the touch on the touchpad. So i looked around the internet and i am now pretty sure it's something called "Palm check" in synaptics. So i opened Mouse settings and found 2 tabs for synaptics. Under the TouchPad tab there is only one button though.

So i click the button and get into that stupid Windows 10 Settings app **bleep** where i found a setting for accidental click while typing. So i set it to "Always on", but that ofcourse did nothing.

So i continue to look around and then i find something that says "More alternatives", so i click it.

And guess where that takes me.. Back to picture one!

 

Everywhere i look on the internet for solutions i only find people saying that you should open the settings menu. But nowhere do i find anything about not even having that menu!

 

So yeah im pretty tired of this crap now, i've spent hours upon hours trying to find some kind of settings menu (I even looked in the registry!) and trying different versions of the driver and all that stuff. Help please?

 

It says the driver version is 19.0.19.18. I downloaded it from the hp support page for this computer.

There are no other problems with any input device, i can use the wierd knob in the middle of the keyboard fine too.

What do i do?
