The trackpad on my toshiba satellite also not working. FN and use of other F keys does not work. However it did work after a reboot but only at the logon screen.
I have a password on the machine and whilst I am on the logon screen the trackpad works. As soon as I am past the logon and at the desktop pad refuses to work. I have been through this process several times with the same results. Any thoughts?
The only change recently has been Win10 asking me if I like the various new screens.

Apologies if you thought I was not courteous, that is certainly not me normally and thanks for responding. Yes I should have said touchpad, the two buttons both work but the pad stops as per my first comment. A usb mouse works fine in all respects. My comments re the FN keys was just indicating I had tried various possible fixes to no avail. I also tried switching off and taking out the battery. This did not help either.
Any help is much appreciated.
