Preferred Solution: Lenovo y-50 touchpad two tap right click+gestures not working

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


I have checked out other answers on the forum for the issue and none of the solutions work for me. I am summarizing my problem below: 1. Two-finger gestures like scrolling, zoom ,etc don't work in Windows 10 2. They work flawlessly in Linux based OSs3. Right click context menu 'disappears' in certain apps when ELAN driver is installed. This problem goes away with uninstalling the driver4. Touchpad under the ELAN settings in mouse settings tab shows no 'OPTIONS' as that is greyed out. The touchpad is detected as PS/2 mouse.I tried re-installing Windows 10. Latest touchpad drivers for the Lenovo Yoga 710 14IKB. The problem persists.

Hi, I have had a Lenovo Yoga 710 14" for about six months now. After approximately two months the 3-finger gestures (three finger swipe-up to access the task-view etc.) stopped working. It did when I changed the mouse speed in the Windows settings.Is there any way to get these 3-finger gestures work again? (... and to be sure I have of course checked that the settings is on in the Lenovo controlpanel for the touchpad). Thanks in advance!

I fail to understand why on a laptop (which has no touchscreen) why you would want to have the swipe gestures?

Surely most folks don't look at the touchpad in use, so it is often that one starts off to the right (especially when the pad is off centre), and it is natural to move to the left to find where one wants to start - hey presto the charms bar opens, and if you're not carefull all sorts of events occur which you really don't want.

Any way on my Lenovo Z580 with synaptics 8.1 we have the worst of both worlds - there is no easy option in the Synaptics settings to turn off the gestures, so the option is to do registry editing to the key TouchPadPS2_3 - I have amended the Active Type dwords from 2 to 0. However there is a side effect of this.

When booting, there is now a delay till the process finishes - we now get blue circular processes next to the pointer for approx 40 seconds.

Does anyone know what other edits we need to make to remove this delay?

Here is the registry for the right edgepull:

A:Turning off touchpad gestures on Lenovo z580

I have X201 and turned off edge swipes like this from control panel > Mouse > Touchpad Setting. Does this work for you? I've included registry also but didn't change it. When I change the enable swipes it changes ConfigFlags DWORD from 141 (on, like you) to 140 (off like me).

After reformatting my laptop last month, I lost the capability to use the touchpad to go back as it has been replaced with task switching.   I didn't document how I enabled this before and hoping someone can help. Also, is there a way to enable the settings window in Windows 10 Settings since we have a precision touchpad?  I'm guessing the issue has to do with outdated drivers.

So, my Y50 had right click problems. It was very unresponsive and progressively got worse. I sent it in for repair, the motherboard and touchpad was replaced. On receiving it, the new touchpad feels great. Right and left click works. But no gestures work. Synaptics also does not detect any actual touch from the touchpad, that is, the area in the tray icon that lights up when you touch the touchpad no longer moves. Is there a specific cable that detects touch and another that connects the touchpad itself ?

I have an XPS 13 9360 running on Windows 10.
Some time ago all the gestures for the touchpad (e.g. zoom, two-finger scrolling, etc.) stopped working.
I've tried updating, re-installing, deleting and installing the drivers, but to no avail.
The touchpad itself works well, it's just the gestures that have disappeared for an inexplicable reason.
I've tried everything I could think of, so I'd be grateful for any kind of advice or suggestion.

Hi, I've just bought my laptop, the gestures on the touchpad were working fine for a few days but have now stopped. Looking around the web it seems this could be to do with either the Windows 10 Creators Update, or the fact that I plugged in a USB wireless mouse. I've tried installing the Synaptics Touchpad drivers, and the correct drivers for this laptop from the HP website but it's still not working. Any help or suggestions would be gratefully received! Many thanks

I just recently bought a Lenovo B570e. I've installed Windows 8 Pro 64bit on it. I want to get the windows 8 gestures on my touchpad. I've tried many things... installed two or three versions of Synaptics. The one on my laptop's drivers CD, from the synaptics website, from the lenovo's drivers page, and a couple others. With synaptics I can't get any gestures, even the scroll feature isn't working. I tried ELan on my drivers CD... and that enabled pinch to zoom and scrolling but how can I get all the Windows 8 gestures on my touch pad. Please tell me a step by step procedure, cause I'm not that good on these things yet.

A:Windows 8 gestures on touchpad not working

If the latest Lenovo drivers from the laptop's website don't do it, it is probable that your system does not support it. Remember that the gestures for Windows 8 were designed for touch screens, not touch-pads. I have a Samsung Series 7; it also doesn't support all of the gestures.

However, to overcome this, I purchased a Logitech Touchpad (the T650, I think). It does support the gestures. It is wireless and rechargeable.

Hi, I'm new to the forum, so I hope I posted in the correct place. My product: HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab045sa (ENERGY STAR) I have all the usual touchpad gestures working (three finger swipe etc).  However, the recent AU introduced a new gesture to switch virtual desktops. I was really looking forward for this update but this gesture doesn't work! I tried reinstalling the AU update with erasing everything and it still doesn't work! I don't get why it doesn't work as I have a precision touchpad and all the other gestures work except for this new one! Also even though the some gestures work (eg three finger flick), I dont think Win 10 recognises the precision touchpad as under Mouse & Trackpad settings it doesn't say that I have a precision touchpad and so doesn't give me options to alter what the gestures do, like it should. I have the  Synaptics SMBus TouchPad driver (21/07/2016). Would really appreciate your help as I was really looking forward for the new gesture to switch virtual desktops. Thanks.

Laptop: Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5518
OS: Windows 8 Pro (clean install)

I recently purchased and updated to Windows 8 Pro. The touchpad works just fine but noticed gestures are not working. I did a Windows update, gestures still do not work. Weird how it's providing an older driver but I still tried it.

I then went to Synaptics website and downloaded and installed the lastest Windows 8 driver. I'm still not getting any gestures.

Under mouse settings in the control panel, my only options to configure buttons are left/right. No gesture settings. Other screenshots of this window I have seen have all kinds of gesture options.

Anyone have any suggestions to get gestures working for my laptop? Simple scrolling gesture would be nice!

If any other info is needed that I didn't already explain, please ask. Thanks!

So I hope that someone who is working at Acer reads this. Or someone who is technically advanced. So I first noticed the issue with sensitivity. The mouse was really sensitive. I then noticed that the gestures don't work either. I cannot scroll using the mouse. So I went into great depths and tried to figure out the problem (but no solution). So I performed these steps:Changed the pointer speed to the fastest (I didn't like the slow pointer speed). The pointer was still pretty slow.Decided to change the TouchPad specific drivers. I go to the ELAN tab under mouse settings. I look and see that the "Options" button is greyed out. I also noticed that it said "Standard PS/2 Mouse"I decide to find the software to change the settings and located it in C:\Program Files\Elantech. I open ETDAniConf.exe and decide to do a test. I uncheck the right click and left click, and some other scroll settings. No avail.Then I decide to uninstall and install the drivers. Did that. Nothing changed. Changing the tapping, button, scrolling options does nothing. The mouse settings still shows it as "Standard PS/2 Mouse" even though the tab says ELAN.I decide to take a big step and just reinstall Windows 8 altogether using Acer Recovery. Reinstalled it, still facing the same issue. Still recognized as "Standard PS/2" mouse.I try another way to attempt to fix the issue. I try to find the most up to date similar driver. I located on that was much newer (2013 version rather than 08.2012). Instal... Read more

So I worked with a Microsoft Tech Support, and apparently the issue is on the Acer's side.

After a bit of research, we found Synaptics drivers from their official website and everything started working normally. Please please please, fix that issue. I am frightened by how many customers will face that issue.

Hi, I recently bought the Yoga 710 and I really like it, but I have ran into a problem with the touchPad. Everything worked fine up until the last few days. The three and four finger swiping gestures no longer work (I double checked the settings. Three finger gestures are on). Every other gesture works (one finger, two finger).  Anyboby else having issues with this. From what I have been able to find online, it looks like an issue that arises when you put your computer into sleep mode. Not really sure where to go from here as far as a fix. Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

I got my Dell Inspiron 15 5000 series a week ago, and despite things working perfectly in the beggining, my touchpad stopped scrolling (2-finger gesture).
The only think it does is move the cursor.
According to the sticker on my laptop I have a precision touchpad, but I see no "You have a precision touchpad" statement in the settings as I believe I should.
Can anyone help? Is there a specific driver that maybe got corrupted? (I ran the update driver test and it says that my driver is up to date) Or is there a separate driver for the gestures?
Thanks for the help

Hi everyone,
So on August 2nd I updated my Dell XPS 13 (9333) to Windows 10 Pro, and despite a few glitches from the OS, everything worked as expected, especifically the 3-finger swipe up to show Task View and down to show the Desktop, as well as (finally) being able to scroll windows out of focus just by hovering over by enabling the option in Settings.
However, yesterday I realized that is no longer the case. The 3-finger swipe brings up Cortana/Search and down opens up the Settings app. Moreover, scrolling w/o focus stopped working too!
I'm running the latest Dell Touchpad driver (v. and I have Multi-Finger gestures enabled in the options. Checking the Windows Update history, besides the Windows Defender updates, I see the following: KB3074678, KB3074686, and a Failed Synaptics Update for Dell Touchpad (around the day it stopped working as it should).
Anyone experiencing a similar problem? Suggestions?

Hi, I want to make use of the gestures that windows 7 has support for, especially the two fingered ones, but I am just using a normal inbuilt touchpad on my laptop. Is it possible? The make of the trackpad isn't synaptics, it's ALPS.

Thanks. Dann

A:Using gestures on standard touchpad

This will depend on the driver available to work with the actual touch pad - The two finger gesture you want is part of the new multi-touch features of win7 and may not be available in older touchpads from the simple fact that it's not supported by the actual hardware.

If the hardware support is there then using the latest drivers should provide the function

Check the manufacturer's site for your laptop for driver updates

Will then have to fully click down on the touch pad to navigate between tabs etc. The scroll function also stops at random, but after restart it all returns to normal until the next time it stops working. Anyone had this problem and know how to fix it?

The right and left click on my Yoga 3 11 touchpad has always been a bit flakey but now it very rarely works at all. Other than that everything else seems to work fine. Scrolling, 2 finger scrolling, tap and double tap are good but the physical clicking makes a sound but doesn't activate. I've done a complete restore to factory Windows 8.1 and just upgraded to Windows 10 Anniversary but still the same problem both for 8.1 and 10. I've looked for a replacement trackpad but can't find one specific to the Yoga 3 11. Does anyone know if another model eg Yoga 2 11 would work or where I could get one?  I also have a Miix 700 which is a tremendous piece of kit but sadly the Yoga 3 11 has been terrible with the CPU throttling and the dodgy trackpad. Any help or advice gratefully accepted. Thanks

The touchpad on my laptop suddenly stopped working today.  First, it appeared as though the right mouse button was permanently pressed, so whenever I used the left mouse button, the action for the right mouse button would also happen at various times.  Now, neither of the buttons work at all.  (I can use the touchpad itself to move the arrow around the screen, but not click.)  I've tried restarting, taking the battery out, updating and rolling back the drivers (which are Elantech).  I'm using a USB mouse now and it works fine.  Can anyone help?
