Enable the Virtual Touchpad in Windows 10

Posted in Windows 10 by Steve Sinchak

If you have a touch display and would like more precise control of your mouse cursor you can turn on a hidden virtual touchpad that can be found in the latest versions of Windows 10. This virtual touchpad comes complete with virtual right and left mouse buttons.  Another great use of the virtual touchpad is with legacy games and applications that don’t work well with a touchscreen. 

To get started, make sure you have the latest version of Windows 10. If you don’t have the following option in your taskbar menu, you will know you must upgrade.

Right-click on the taskbar and select Show Touchpad button.
