I just got a new Windows 8 máy vi tính. So far the biggest problem is the hideous Elan-powered touchpad. It has a crazily-fast & sensitive sầu scroll tốc độ, và has the scroll direction inverted. The controls to modify these settings are greyed out under the Elan panel in control panel > mouse, for some reason.

Likely, yes, Windows will revert lớn some simple, basic functions. However, it may completely disable your trackpad, depending on whether the Windows mặc định driver supports your trackpad or not. You should have a USB mouse handy in case this happens.

Generally, you can obtain driver installation files from your máy tính xách tay manufacturer"s trang web. Uninstalling & re-installing drivers may or may not fix the problem, but it"s definitely worth a try.

I vị not recommend you lớn uninstall the ELAN driver, you will lost all their functionalities which are very useful.

If sensitive sầu và scroll tốc độ are the problem, you can fix that in their option dialog:

The slider allows you to mix the scroll speed


The slider allows you khổng lồ mix the sensitivity


(I could share more realistic pictures but I am French và my PC also, so I Googled that ones)

Note, if you still want to lớn uninstall the driver, you also have lớn uninstall the software (which is not automatically removed) from system program unistaller.
