    I know a clickpad has no buttons, a touchpad does. But I do see people mostly calling all clickpads touchpads so I wanted to clear that up. I'd like this thread to be only about clickpads with no buttons at all.

    I have an Acer A0756 netbook that came with Windows 8 x64 with a horrible jumpy mind-of-its-own Elan clickpad, hardware ID ETD0502. I've tried everything to make this clickpad usable with Windows 7 x86 and x64 also, with countless different drivers and no luck, although x86 was slightly better. I had to carry a mouse around with me.

    So a few days ago I did a test install on a spare drive of WZOR's 10240.16384.150709-1700.TH1_CLIENTENTERPRISE_VOL_X64FRE_EN-US.ISO. I let Windows 10 install the elan driver (along with all other updates), rebooted, and this clickpad is now perfect! And when I say perfect I mean I can turn off tap to click now when I never could before and it behaves beautifully. Before, I could attempt to move the cursor across the desktop and it would drag everything it got near and drop things in places I didn't want. Trying to navigate windows explorer was a nightmare. Now it only drags things when I want it to. I haven't played around with gestures yet but I personally don't care about that, so maybe some people can chime in about the gestures.

    Windows 10 made my almost new netbook fun to use as it should have been in the first place.

    Please share your hardware info and whether Windows 10 fixed your clickpad or not.

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean. My ASUS X205 has a portion of the touchpad they clearly has movable button parts but the button portion is included in the touchpad. I dislike it because unless I pay attention when I'm about to click, my pointer moves.
