Hello,

I would like to ask you one thing - do you recall if the TouchPad can be adjusted (position wise) before srewing down? I have this problem where the right side on the TouchPad is too close to the palmrest (between spacebar and the TrackPoint buttons), and when I click the right physical button it collides with it, providing not so great using experience. So I was wondering it is posiible to losen the screws and move it back a little.

Is it possible? Thanks in advance for answear.

Do I have to reinstall drivers after this? I replaced the touchpad but now two fingers scrolling is not working. Any ideas?

Do I have to remove the keyboard to replace the touchpad for thinkpad t450?

It does not seem necessary when following the instructions above!
