Synaptics Forgets Settings


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


  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:


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.
