As you may recall, Windows 10 build 14965 introduced an on-screen touchpad to Windows 10. At the time, the feature let users with tablet devices replace their mouse whenever necessary. Thanks to a tip from a reader (thanks, Justice!), however, the feature appears to have gone missing in the latest Windows 10 insider build 15002.

To clarify, Microsoft is also aware of the issue, and has pointed out in the changelog in build 15002 that the option to enable the Virtual Touchpad is missing from the taskbar context menu. It’s safe to assume that as Windows Insiders continue to submit their feedback to the team at Microsoft, the feature will soon reemerge. There is still no reason to be vexed, though, as build 15002 introduced a ton of new features to the Windows 10 experience.
