How to Fix Acer Touchpad after Windows 10 Updates

Newest updates on Jan 31, which upgrade my current Windows 10 build has ruined my Touchpad functionality. It does not work at all, so first of all without USB Mouse I need to use my touchpad firt. What I did was press F2 upon power on to enter BIOS. Now I just set touchpad to basic so that I can use it with simple functionality without 2 finger gesture.
Now after checking device manager, the Elan touchpad finally show up, however I still want back the 2 finger gesture. After few research and few tweaks, the touchpad shows up after I change it back to advance in BIOS but I must tick View Hidden Device to see it on device manager. Next thing is my printer detected but not working. Now I know what I should do to fix this - Revert to previous Build.

I know what I exactly need to do, system restore. Sadly I did not set my C drive any restore point. So I left with one more options which is reset my Windows to previous Build.

Simply type reset this pc in your search bar, now on the next screen select second option which allows you to reset your pc into previous build.

Now just plug in power chord, the process takes about 30 minutes (for my laptop). When it restart the touchpad still does not work, but actually you just need to press Fn + F7 keys to re-activate your Touchpad, and I did get my 2 finger scrolling function.

Here is another guide I collected during my research to fix this problems, hope it will help you out too without having to revert to previous build:

Touchpad Not Working in Windows 10

Most of our  drivers automatically installed in Windows 10 and Windows Automatic updates. But sometimes the most compatible and newest version provided by Windows does not work as it should, such as you can't use the 2 finger scrolling.

Of course not all of us are tech savvy and have the knowledge to get the right and latest drivers. To put things simple, here is a simple guide to fix it.

1. Download the latest drivers
Most common laptop nowadays uses either synaptic (popular on Acer and HP) or Elantech.

For Synaptic just download the latest version from synaptic:

For elantech you need to download this version:
Elantech_Touchpad_11.8.24.6 : Download link (for toshiba)
for other model just google YOURLAPTOPMODEL, example : ASUS

2. Uninstall driver and reboot

This simple steps proven worked on cetain model such as ASUS.
Go to Device manager (right click on windows icon and select device manager) - mice and other pointing devices - Right click on your pointing device displayed and reboot. (You may need to reboot twice).

If you have comments, feedback and suggestion do let me know in the comment section below.
