    Ok well at least either write to hp on their website telling them the touchpad doesn't work and you demand a new product

    Or now you know never buy hp again.

    Windows 8.1

    HP uses Synaptics driver for the touchpad. Go to Device Manager, uninstall the driver and either go to the HP site to download for your model or let Windows Update find it. If you uninstall it and have HP Support Assistant, it will find it, download it and install for you.

    I've always built my computers (since 1978), and used the tools available. My wife, on the other hand, waited until she could have a laptop before we purchased one for her. When we did - and for every one of the four since - I've purchased a mouse (wireless once they were available) or just moved the one from the last laptop. We've visited more countries than I can remember, and we've always carried her laptop at least partly to store our photography, and partly to communicate back home. We've always carried the mouse. No big deal.

Cannot click on 'New Tab'
When one hovers over one's browser button, the pages that are open are only displayed and no 'open new tab' is displayed. This means that one has to open a page that one is not using (at that moment) to open the browser to then click on 'open new tab'. Have I missed something? I know that it...
