Brand new Lenovo 2 in 1 Touchpad problems

  Tycho 21:05 01 Sep 2018

I have been busily investigating the wonders of Windows 10 but have come across (caused?) a problem with the touch pad.

In Settings ---> Devices ---> Touchpad I unchecked "Leave touchpad on when mouse is connected", thinking that this would disable the touchpad when I was using a mouse. I was wrong. It has disabled the touhpad under all circumstances and changing the tick status on the above does nothing to help.

There was no mouse connected when I did that but the touchpad was immediately disabled and I can't get is to work again. What can I do about it?

What kind of Mouse is it. Bluetooth?

Logitech wireless. I only plugged it in when I found that the touchpad wouldn't work.

Reboot and while the screen goes dark then remove the mouse. Remember to tick the 'Leave touchpad on when....' before you do this. Reboot and not shutdown.
