I have personally tried this method on HP 4520s laptop running on Windows 10 operating system. I don’t know about other models but if you have one which has this problem and it is not an HP 4520s but running on windows 10, then you can use the same procedure to fix it. Read with me.

Step 2

Click on the windows key on the keyboard or you can click on the windows button in the taskbar to open the windows search. In the search bar, using your laptop keyboard, type “TOUCHPAD” you will see the PRECISION TOUCHPAD SETTINGS. Click on it and the touchpad settings will open up. Now, click on the “ADDITIONAL SETTINGS
