I just upgraded my laptop to Windows 10, and am so far loving it far more than my old Windows 8.1 Pro. However, probably due to the fact that Cortana is now brought up with a 3 or 4-finger tap, my previous Synaptics touchpad settings were changed. So I accessed the Synaptics driver settings from "Additional Mouse Options" in Settings and turned off reverse scrolling direction, 3-finger flip, and tapping for 1-4 fingers. But, whenever I log out and back in again or restart my laptop, the settings are reset again.
My touchpad is a PS/2 Synaptics TouchPad V7.5, with driver version 22.214.171.124. I have removed and reinstalled the driver, and that did not work.
I feel bad for posting an issue with Windows 10 only being a few hours old, but the driver fix didn't work and the only relevant solution I could find online was for Windows 7 and involved disabling "KHALMNPR" from startup (and my computer has no "KHALMNPR" in its startup tasks).
Thanks in advance! I hope I just missed something obvious...
