Suddenly when I turned on my machine, the left click button on touchpad will no longer work,right click works fine but no left click. This is also true for the touch screen. If I touch the window icon to open the menu, it changes color but does nothing. Things I tried:
1-Connected an external mouse and it also doesn't work with left click.
2-I tried a restore point from last week to see if that solved the problem. Still the same.
What I did to disable the left click button. Could have been caused by a windows update?
I have upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. I had problems going into and out of sleep mode which seem have been resolved by installing updates for Intel Graphics. Now I can't get anything to come up when I left click on the Start button. All of the other icons in the task bar will only work with a left click of the mouse, nothing happens with a right click. Also, I did not get Cortana when I upgraded to Windows 10 on this device. I also upgraded another lap top and have Cortana on that one. With all of these problems occurring one after the other, can I reinstall Windows 10?
I have four computers running Win10. On two of them the windows "Start" button on the task bar doesn't work. So I can't get to Settings or Apps. I can right click on the Start button and get the "right-click menu". All of the other task bar buttons work.
What's going on with this? It used to work. For a while it didn't work on my laptop, now that is working but on two other desktop computers it doesn't work. All computers have same Win10 version and latest updates (although hardware differs some between them).
Can I add the "Settings" and "All Apps" shortcut I would normally get left-clicking on the Start button to the Start button's "right-click menu"?
Clicking left on start button should open Cortana and Start Options.
There's a hamburger on the top left which will bring up the start menu, Most Used, Recently Added and File Explorer, Settings, etc. At the bottom, Power Symbol and a half hamburger that brings up all Apps.
It does not open the Cortana search.
Don't know what the owner did but all was OK at setup.
When it was running it came up with 67 'activities not showing' (or something like that!). Looked like they were all apps? The advice was to try the start button when it finished. Nothing. I restarted the laptop, still nothing. I don't know what to try next.
In fact I didn't even know the 'window' on left bottom should show anything. I figured out by right clicking I could turn the computer on/off and just assumed that was the way!! It was only when I had to try to change the 'default' settings so I could open my photos with Windows Viewer that I realised. Then I wanted to change from Bing to Google as default and had to do it in a roundabout way. I have no Microsoft Edge icon either anywhere although when I go to a website through another email it always comes up.
The other thing is that I used to be able to swipe in from right corner to get all my apps. Now I can't. I have a Sony Vaio laptop which had Windows 8.1 and I upgraded to W10 when prompted it was ready for my computer. About 6 weeks ago?
I have just upgraded from seven to ten. At first things were ok but I no longer have anything on the windows icon with left click. Also the new browser will not start and internet explorer browser icon went away.
I just upgraded to Windows 10 and have discovered a problem that I can't seem to fix. When I Right-click on my Touchpad, nothing happens. This was very useful when I need to fix a word spelling & get options for the misspelled word.
Two weeks after the installation of Windows 10, the left button stopped working on one of the two accounts on my laptop. I can't get my start button, Start menu, icons on my desktop. Have tried sfc/scanow, DISM.exe/online/cleanup-image/scanhealth & many of the remediesfrom the net with no luck. Surprisingly the second profile on the computer is working fine. I am at a point of returning to windows 8.1
Another issue I see (on a different Win10 machine) is when i right click the start menu the links that are pointed out in red do not work. all other links work fine. It seems the shortcuts are broken but i looked in the user folders and they are all there. clicking the links in the users folder opens the screens but using the shortcut doesn't seem to work. it's very odd.
After upgrade from windows 7 everything works properly. After o while it was not possible to open the START MENY by left click the windows 10 icon in the lower left corner. Right click works ok. What is the reason to that?
Updated my Win 7 Pro x64 computer last night to Windows 10. Now can't click on the start menu items or really any windows menu. Some other random things won't accept a left click either. Chrome seems to respond just fine but not firefox. I'm puzzled. I have a Razer Naga 2014 but tried a Cheap little logitech mouse with same results. I also logged into my machine Via team viewer from work and left click still doesn't work on things.
I'd be totally fine doing a fresh install but not sure of the procedure yet to have it activate without installing windows 7 first then doing the upgrade again.
I have an Acer Aspire E1-572 running Windows 10. The computer has an Elan smart pad drivers. I recently updated to windows 10 but after it was installed, my touchpad settings changed. I tried to change the settings to how they were before, now i can no longer adjust the sensativity or have the inertia " momentum" settings enabled. Those are no longer options listed on the driver settings.
I am disabled with limited mobiity and I rely on the ability to flick the mouse and have the cursor travel across the screen. Without these settings I am struggling to use the computer.
I've just upgraded to Win10 and the ability to open a new tab with a two-finger click seems to have disappeared. I used this a lot in Win8.1 so it would be nice to get it back. I've not been able to find anything about it on the net yet....
The left button on my touchpad developed a hard to describe malfunction. Turning on right-handed mode improved the functionality, but accidentally clicking the left button creates a complicated, frustrating situated which can usually only be resolved by restarting. Is there something in the settings or the registry which can disable the button until I get it fixed?
My primary problem is that the Action Center opens at every second click. I think the problem migth be with some touchpad settings, but I haven't been able to identify them.
The touchpad started acting all weird all of a sudden. I have tried to restart the pc of course. That didn't work. I also ran a virus check, but at least nothing was identified. I have also tried to update the touchpad driver with no improvement.
Besides the Action Center appearing all the time, the touchpad stopped responding to taps (the way I usually click). I was able to borrow an external mouse. I had no problems with the mouse, but the problems remained with the touchpad. After disabling the touchpad and using the mouse for a while, the problems disappeared. However, there was still some weird behavior with the touchpad (some settings had changed, for example ClickLock had been turned on). The touchpad does not work the way the settings indicate in Settings > Devices > Mouse and touchpad > Additional mouse options > (Dell Touchpad >) Click to change DellTouchpad Settings.
Now the problems from before borrowing the mouse have reappeared, and I can't get access to a mouse at the moment.
I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop. It kept prompting me to upgrade to Windows 10, so I did so. Now the button that disables my touchpad (also the F5 button) is not working. The touchpad will not turn off.
Secondly, when I try to move the cursor, the "right click" menu pops up wherever the cursor lands, and it will not let me type. I have to use an external mouse to click out of the menu, then put the cursor back where I wanted it to land.
How can I make the disable button on my keyboard work again, and how can I fix the mouse so that the right click menu only comes up if I actually right click?
I read through the forum and used the instructions given using an external mouse to sort he touchpad issue out. But my clickers won't work. It's a Toshiba satellite C50D-B-120 laptop and prior to his I had windows 8.1.
I recently dual-booted my Windows 8 notebook with Windows 10. But the touchpad and keyboard won't work even after installing the appropriate drivers. This problem did happened before this in Windows 8 but solved by using Windows Update.My notebook is an Aspire E5-411-C4TN. I even downloaded Elan and Synaptics driver from Acer. Tried Googled around, found nothing...
My son deleted something shortly after installing windows 10, on his laptop, now he can not left click on anything in the taskbar. Just has the hourglass thing run for a few seconds and then disappears. With nothing else happening. How to restore...
