How to Turn on Virtual Touchpad in Windows 10

To enable the virtual touchpad, right-click an empty area in the taskbar and select “Show touchpad button” from the context menu. If your mouse or touchpad doesn’t work properly, using a finger to tap the touch screen and hold for a few seconds will trigger a right-click.

You’ll see a touchpad icon in the notification area of the taskbar. Click it to open up the virtual touchpad. It looks like a physical trackpad, which includes the left and right click buttons at the bottom of the window. You can move the cursor by swiping your finger in the large area.
