Synaptics Forgets Settings

Problem:

I am using Windows 10. My synaptics settings get changed after rebooting.

Resolution:

  1. First go to the website of the manufacturer to download and install the latest Touchpad driver which is compatible with Windows 10.
  2.  You may create a new user account and recheck the settings.
  3.  You may go for a Clean Boot to test the situation.
  4.  You may check the registry settings:

Open Run menu by pressing Windows key and  R

Into the Run box type regedit and hit enter

In the Registry Editor, navigate to the following location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Synaptics\SynTP\Instal​l

Locate a key named DeleteUserSettingsOnUpgrade

If this is present, right click the key and select Modify

Set the Value data field to 0 ( Zero ) and then click Ok.

Close the Registry Editor.

Make the Synaptics setting changes and save them, then check if they’re now retained after a reboot.
