Touchpad and Windows Key toggle button

Hi!

 

The [Touchpad and Windows Key toggle button] next to the touchpad is always on and does nothing when pressed. Fn+F7 works but it kinda sucks that the button doesn't.

I've searched and found nothing about this. Am I the only one?

 

Thanx for any help or suggestion.

    If it does change to red by pressing it, then the switch is broken and therefore you will have to send it to Acer if you want it to be fixed.

    Always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    Helios 300 and Nitro 5 users DO NOT update the BIOS to version 1.22 if you don't want the keyboard's backlight to turn off after 30 seconds even when the device is plugged in.

    This button is supposed to switch off the trackpad when pressed, so I guess the button for your trackpad just doesn't work. If it bothers you, i suggest you to send your laptop for repair to Acer.

     

    When you say the switch is on, does light up on green?

    Thank you for your reply. I know I'm being silly... everything else works perfectly.

     

    Yes, the light is green.
