Quoted
If your touchpad isn’t working, let’s start with some simple steps to see if it’s actually enabled. First, check your keyboard to see if there’s a function button that turns the touchpad off and on. This will vary depending on your device, but it’ll usually be represented by an icon on one of the F# keys.

If this doesn’t work, press Windows Key + I, select Devices > Mouse & touchpad > Additional mouse options. A new window will open and from here you need to click the tab which is furthest to the right, likely called Device Settings. Underneath Devices, select your touchpad and ensure it’s not disabled. If it is, then click the Enable button.

Failing this, press Windows Key + X and select Device Manager. Then expand Mice and other pointing devices, right-click your touchpad and select Update Driver Software…. You could also navigate to the manufacturer’s website and download your drivers that way instead.
