    Mouse settings not saving; changed back after reboot


    I changed my mouse settings so that I can tap and drag in the control panel, but after restarting my computer, the mouse settings have that box unchecked.

    My computer is this one; specs listed on site: Buy Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga Touchscreen 2-in-1 - Intel Core i5 - Microsoft Store Online

    More than likely the problem lies in your mouse driver. I would uninstall/reinstall your mouse driver. Once I find a link to your model on the lenovo website I will edit this for you.

    Edit: here you go this should be the link

    I have the latest driver installed. I tried uninstalling it and then restarting, leading to it being re-installed, and the problem persists.

    Hopefully somebody else on here knows what the problem may be best of luck!
