Just an anoying update! Scoured the net for a solution but all were directing you hear there and anywhere, not much good when you have no means of navigation! I must admit the KB shortcuts I know are few and basic!
Once I found someone who had a grasp of that slight impediment, I was able to summon the Device manager, ...where all appeared normal,
....and the damned track pad worked like it always had!
Don'cha just hate it when that happens!
