OK, here we go, I'll try to keep the NUB questions to a minimum but since I'm a NUB...: I have WS 2019 ISO installed but hit a roadblock with mouse touchpad not working. Assume I need to manually download driver but can't navigate without mouse, and no provision for a traditional mouse connection. Will a USB mouse work or is their a better solution?
The mouse touchpad on my older Dell laptop (see signature) works with highly optimized WS 2019. So perhaps if your touchpad is sufficiently new, the (perhaps older) WS 2019 ISO may not have a driver for it.
Not sure what you mean when you say there is no provision for a traditional mouse connection (?) and then ask whether a USB mouse will work. But if you can plug in a USB mouse that should certainly work.
Another possible solution would be to use a WiFi mouse, and since I'm assuming that you want to use Bubble UPnP as a remote control point, that should also work if you have a USB point available for the WiFi dongle.
Finally, there might be an appropriate touchpad driver now available in the recent WS 2019 updates. Since I haven't used the start menu in yonks, I don't remember whether you can access the Windows updater there. If you can, great, you might give that a try. If you cannot access the updater via the Start menu, enter sconfig.cmd at a command prompt. Items 5 and 6 that are in the window that will appear allow you examine/change the windows update settings and download and install updates, respectively. Not having done this either for years (see below) I seem to recall that you can select to install all updates or only the important ones. So you might also try to update that way.
I haven't installed updates since first using WS 2019 on the laptop as in the past there were a number of reports that updating interfered with one or more aspects of music playback. I took the 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' old chestnut to heart, never updated after that, and have had no problems since.
Anyway, hope that some of this helps.
