    WINDOWS 10

    Windows Update installs today the update "ELAN Touchpad 15.9.5.3_X64_WHQL from ELAM Microelectronic Corp.".

    After the installation i boot the computer and the look of the icon of "ELAN Pointing Device" changed.

    The touchpad is enable, and before this update he stay disable because i customize in Properties saying:

    "When using Mouse i want the touchpad disable".

    Now, i need to call "ELAN property of touch-pad", and in "ELAN" choose "Stop Device".

    The problem is that i need to make this change every time i boot the computer.

    Someone can help me about this?

    Thank you and best regards
    Curious

    This is the first procedure i made and the result was the same.
    I think i have to uninstall the driver from Control Panel ant then install a version before that one.
    I´m afraid to do this, thus is better to wait for a solution for the problem by Microsoft.
    Thanks for your answer.

    I had the same problem, tho the option has dissapeared from the mouse-settings, you can still change it in your Windows Registry.
    Warning : you need to have some registry knowledge, it's important to backup your registry first to avoid causing problems with your Windows Installation.

    1: Right click the start-button and select "Run" Type "Regedit.exe" and press enter.
    2: Navigate to the following registry path "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Elantech\OtherSetting"
    3: Find the name "DisableWhenDetectUSBMouse" and change D-Word value from "0" to "1"
    4: Close Regedit and Sign-out from Windows, then sign back in to load the new mouse-settings.

    If it doesn't work, also navigate to this registry path "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Elantech\OtherSetting" and repeat step 3.

    Let me know how this works out for you :)
