I had a chromebook before and for some reason the touchpad started acting differently. Specifically, I could no longer scroll using my fingers (touching with one finger and using a second finger to scroll). I thought it was because I had damaged the hardware, as I tended to hold the thing by the corner when I moved it, which caused some bending, and I thought perhaps this stressed some of the internal stuffs. However, I bought a (refurbished) new chromebook, and I'm still dealing with the issue. At first it worked fine (as preferred), but then I rebooted to let it do an update, a signed back in, and... poof, back to not being able to scroll using the touchpad. I really don't want to reset everything, especially since I don't even know if that'll fix it. Has anyone dealt with or heard anything like this, and know of some way I accidentally might have caused this? I've tried a dozen different fixes suggested online, to no avail. I'm sure I didn't change any settings whenever it started happening, so I'm guessing it was some kind of keyboard shortcut thing that I unwittingly did. And now I'm hoping there's some way to reverse it.
