Quick Two-finger swipe on touchpad causes windows 10 to lock

Q: Quick Two-finger swipe on touchpad causes windows 10 to lock

Hello, I haven't got a clue why this issue happens and haven't seen a post anywhere on google about anyone having the same issue. I have two T470s here in the office, both of them will lock if you swipe downwwards quickly with two fingers. As you can imagine this is very annoying for the users when they are scrolling as every now and then it will lock! Anyone else had this issue before?

Has anybody been able to change settings for 3 finger swipe in Windows 10?Switching apps using 3 finger gestures is absolutely useless, and I would like to be able to use the same gestures to go back and forth.  When I installed Synaptics driver for other products, version 18.x and for Windows 8.1, I would get the back and forth option back. The only problem is that the trackpad buttons do not work. Everything else worked fine except for that. I tried a number of 18.x versions, and all of them had the same issue. Synaptics driver for P70 Windows 8.1, ver. 19.x, doesn't have back and forth option. This has become vastly annoying, especially when I'm browsing the web using the touchpad as going back would require a rather lengthy travel of my hand. I use Chrome mainly and I have to press two physical buttons, Alt and an arrow key, to go back and forth.  Please, any input will be greatly appreciated.

As seen in this video:



Is it possible to emulate that "sliding" feature where you can switch to different windows so easily? I can't believe it's not a built in feature it would be so much easier to navigate through windows than having to point and click on them!

A:Is it possible to get that Mac three finger swipe feature?

The closest you can get in standard windows shell would be probably using Synaptics driver for touchpad and setting 3 finger gesture to Win+Tab (or two times it to switch between windows) or Ctrl+Tab (to switch between tabs).

Of course, there would be no "sliding" animation itself, only standard Win+tab animation.

Hello,
I have a Dell XPS 13 9333 upgraded to a Win10.
Everything works absolutely fine except gestures on touchpad.
WRONG -> Three finger swipe-up opens cortana, swipe-down opens system params.
Expected opened apps to be shown and minimization of opened windows. It was so for a while but then suddenly stopped working.
Everything checked correctly in DELL touchpad settings.

How can I solve this issue?

Hi all, I'm not specifically a technical expert, but this morning when I booted up my windows 7 professional laptop something was completely missing. Usually to login I use the finger swipe recognition and in white writing this usually appears as " swipe finger to login " above the admin login button, however this seems to be missing and swiping my finger on the sensor does not do a thing. I should also mention when first set up windows this was stupidly my only way of getting into my computer and now am stuck and confused. Thank you if you may offer any help.

Hey everyone,
I am having a problem with the UPEK software that came with my laptop. It doesnt respond like it is supposed to when i swipe my finger on the sensor if im at the desktop. Normally, it would have a pop-up. But now nothing. Also, if I am in IE8, I would normally swipe my finger, and there would be a pop-up asking if i wanted to save my password, and nothing again. I know my sensor is working because i use it to log in and i use it to sign into the Protector Suite program.
Anyone know why?

I'm using an HP Spectre x360, with Windows 8.1 (factory installed).  I have the most up-to-date Synaptics touchpad drivers, as obtained from the HP website under my computer model number. The problem is when trying to use the Synaptics 3-finger swipe in Internet Explorer 11.  It does not work reliably.  Sometimes I'll have to swipe multiple times before the swipe will register and the browser will navigate backward or forward accordingly.  It seems as if there's some sort of focus problem, like an initial swipe or two creates the proper focus, and then a final swipe finally causes the appropriate navigation.  The behavior will change depending on the website.  For very simple sites, sometimes a single swipe will suffice, but with more complex sites, the problems tends to surface. Can this be fixed with the Synaptics drivers, with a registry edit, or with some other hack?

Recently whenever I accidentally swipe on the touchpad from the right edge towards the center it enters a tab (or performs the function as if I hit the tab button). This is driving me crazy since when I want to move the cursor to the right I get a tab instead. I couldn't find anywhere in the touchpad settings how to disable it.
Any ideas?

As many of you have come to find out, some of the new drivers for windows 10 on dell laptops are messed up - you can no longer navigate back and forward while surfing in a browser with three finger multi-gestures - arguably one of the must useful gestures. I had this problem with the touchpad on my e5450. After 2 hours of trial and error, this is how I fixed it:
1. Uninstall the current touchpad driver - confirm that the DellTPad folder in C:\Program Files is empty(there may be a file left that you can't delete, but that's ok)
2. Restart your computer.
3. Download and install the windows 7 driver -  you will need to restart.
4. Navigate to the DellTPad folder again.
5. Now you will need to change the compatibility of all the application files(.exe) to windows 7(it may only need to be one or two files but I changed the 6 there just in case). To do this, right click on each file > properties > compatibility > change settings for all users > check mark windows 7 and run as administrator. Do this to all the application files but NOT Apoint - it will not auto-startup if you do.
6. Restart
7. Open the dell touchpad properties and adjust your multi gesture settings.
Note: while this method worked for me, your system might be different so ymmv.

A:Solved: Touchpad swipe function not working

Seeing 76 reads and no reply's must mean no one knows how to fix it...or I'm the only one that doesn't know

I found a solution. The drivers I downloaded from the synaptics sites did not install, because I read somewhere that they had forgotten/neglected to digitally sign the driver (for windows 8.1 at least) Windows will not install a driver that is not digitally signed. That function can, however, be switched off. Here's how
Installed the driver afterwards and everything was as it. I'm running windows 8.1 64 bit. Perhaps someone can say if it works on Win 8 if the problem exists there also.

Hello.

I use an Asus Zeenbook with a large trackpad that enables multiple finger gestures. One of them is three finger swipes left and right to navigate back and forth.

If I want to go to the previous site in my browser, usually I could just swipe with three fingers, but somehow that has been disabled in Chrome. It still works in Windows (in folders) and in IE though, so it must be Chrome-related. AFAIR I haven't installed anything out of the ordinary recently, this problem just suddenly occurred one day...

What could've happened?

Hello, as the title states, I am having issues with my two finger scrolling with my touchpad. My computer is a new alienware 15, and I am currently running windows 8.1. I do have two finger scrolling enabled, and it works, it just acts weirdly and I would like help understanding what is going on.
This first and primary issue, is that while scrolling up or down a page, I will randomly jump way down the page or way up the page. I am not able to reproduce this issue consistently, so I haven't been able to properly measure it, it just occurs randomly while browsing. I believe it always jumps down while scrolling down and vise versa, but I'm not sure. And I believe the distance of the jump is about equal to page up or page down, but that might just be wishful thinking. I have no idea what is causing this, I have completely disabled tapping, so it shouldn't be zone tapping for page up and page down, but I don't know what else it could be.
The next thing isn't really an issue, but more something I'd like to understand the significance of. When I start the two finger scrolling gesture, a little box appears (seemingly in a random location) and shrinks away almost instantly. It seems to have nothing to do with where my mouse is, nor where my fingers are on the trackpad, so I really don't understand what it's communicating to me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Issues with two finger scrolling on the alienware 15 synaptic touchpad running windows 8.1

I had the exact same problem, very annoying, I have Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, but the touchpad is Synaptics as well. So after a lot of searching on this issue, there was one possible solution: Remove the manufacturer driver, and install drivers from synaptics website. www.synaptics.com/.../drivers.php
If you cannot install the driver from synaptics website, (mine failed the first try), then you have to follow these steps:
1. After uninstalling the manufacturer synaptics driver, go to the lower right side of the screen, and click settings -- > power --> hold Shift key and press Restart.
2. A blue screen will appear with options. Choose Troubleshoot --> Advanced Options --> Startup Settings --> Click Restart.
3. After that, your computer restarts, shows u a numbered menu, choose number 7, which will turn off driver signatures.
4. When you are back in windows, download and install the driver from the synaptics website and install.

Hope it works, it worked for me.

The previous driver allowed for edge scrolling but latest version does not have the capability.I understand for those upgrading to Windows 8 with touch screen capability this is not an issue but what about us who do not have touch screen. In my opinion this is a major flaw. Please let me hear form you if you too are unhappy about the new Windows 8 Touch pad driver. By the way, I tried rolling the driver back but the previous driver causes serious erratic behavior. Below is a screen shot of the version for the newest Windows 8 Touch Pad driver.

So I recently purchased a new laptop that has Windows 10 installed (Acer Aspire E5-573G) and I would like to change the way the touchpad taps work. Specifically, I would like a middle click from a three finger tap. It's an ELAN touchpad, if that makes any difference, and I have installed the latest drivers.
Everything I looked up on google said to either use some program from ELAN, or to edit the registry. There currently is no program installed on here from ELAN, and all the google results I could conjure up while looking for a download for the program are people wanting to get rid of it. The only thing in my programs and features from ELAN is what I believe is the driver - "ELAN HIDI2C Filter Driver X64 13.6.3.1_WHQL"
The suggested registry edit also isn't available for me. That is to say, the path "HKEY_CURRENT_USER > SOFTWARE > Elantech" does not exist.
I'm not sure what the correct way I should be going about this is. Everything else regarding the touchpad works as intended, but I have no way of customizing it beyond the settings in windows. And since I have zero interest in having Cortana or action center being on my computer let alone as mouse commands, those settings are completely worthless to me.

I am currently running Windows 10 (64-bit). After I turn on my computer, the three-finger flick gesture to open multitasking works great. However, after I put my computer to sleep (for several hours) and resume windows, only the three finger flick gesture no longer works. Two finger scrolling, single tapping, etc work except the three finger flick. This feature, however, works with the keyboard (WIN + tab) so I'm assuming the problem lies in the touchpad. How can I fix this? I have the latest touchpad driver installed. Thank you!

A:Multitasking: 3 finger flick on touchpad after Sleep

I have an HP Envy 14  6-1010us that is experiencing this same issue. Three-finger flick works after restarting, but not after resuming from sleep.

OS: Windows 10 Build 1511BIOS: 1.15Synaptics Driver: 19.0.7.33I restart the sytem. At this point, the touchpad is working without issue. I then close the lid on the laptop to initiate S3(sleep). I notice on of the LEDs on the right side starts blinking. I open the lid and press the power button to resume from S3(sleep). 2 out of 4 times two-finger scrolling stops working at this point.Is there a new driver that fixes this issue? Is there a way I can submit a ticket directly to Acer without going through chat or phone #?Reason I am avoiding customer support: Chat representative wanted me to disable driver verificication with full assurance that this will fix my issue. Disabling driver verification is only useful when the device is not working at all. I tried it and it failed to fix the issue.The other reason I am avoiding customer support is that the end result is very likely an RMA, which will not fix the issue.

I like to scroll in the direction the text is hidden. For example, if I want to scroll DOWN, I swipe DOWN on the touchpad. This works fine in webpages, open windows, documents, etc. However, in the Start Menu or any other Settings menu in Windows 10, the scrolling is reversed. If I swipe DOWN, the screen goes in the opposite way of what I expect. This is only happening in the Windows Menu and Setting Menus.  I had synaptics driver have the inverted scrolling off.  How do I make it so that the scrolling direction is uniform EVERYWHERE?

I have a ThinkPad Yoga S1 with a clean and up-to-date installation of Windows 10 Pro. Synaptics driver version 19.0.17.27 is installed.Two-finger touchpad scrolling rarely works in several UWP/Metro apps such as Calendar and Groove Music. When I attempt to scroll, a little crosshair appears on the screen and moves up and down instead of moving the page. Every once in a while it actually does scroll, but only at random and immediatey stops working again.Strangely enough, if the UWP window is in the background behind another window and isn't currently in focus, two-finger scrolling works fine. Non-UWP/Metro applications do not seem to be affected by this problem.Any help would be greatly appreciated.-gyokuroEDIT: I found a temporary workaround right after I posted this that doesn't fix the issue, but at least makes it less of an annoyance until this is fixed. If you click on the taskbar and then try to scroll in a UWP app, it works fine, and the tiny crosshair doesn't appear either.

I have have my ThinkPad X1 Yoga touchpad configured to use the 3 finger gesture to switch apps on the Gestures tabe of the Synaptics Control Panel.  But swiping up or down on the touchpad with 3 fingers does not do anything.  This used to work when I first got my X1 Yoga a couple of weeks ago.  But it has since stopped.  All my drivers are up to date as of today (6/8/2016).  Is anyone else having this problem? I would like to add that the two finger Pinch to Zoom gesture on my touchpad does work...

I recently purchased an XPS 15 9550 and I need middle mouse click in some of my applications. Under touchpad settings, It only allows mapping 3-finger click to Cortana or Activity Center. Does anyone know how I can get the touchpad to send a middle mouse click to my applications?  On previous laptops I have owned, they typically included a Synaptics touchpad, which always made it easy to perform this mapping using a 3-finger click, but it seems like Dell has included something custom and no such options appear to be available. Any help would be appreciated.

A:How to map 3-finger touchpad click to middle mouse button

Its nothing else than horrific creating a premium working ultrabook that doesn't provide a meriad of touchpad gestures. Not even middle mouse button klick ... frequently used to open links in a new tab.
I completely dont understand.
There is a way to customize it though:

I restarted my computer to do a Windows update, and suddenly two-finger scrolling and pinch to zoom aren't working. I've already been to Windows mobility center and into the touchpad settings, where it says both are turned on.
Any ideas how to fix it?

A:Inspiron 15R 5520 touchpad two-finger gestures not working

Since this was asked almost 3 years ago and I see no answer I have to assume this is not a function I can expect on the Inspiron 5520.  I suppose it is too old to expect a driver change to enable that functionality.

Hi all,
I'm currently operating with a Dell Latitude (E6410) running Windows 7 32-bit. I have the default Alps touchpad built-in, and was recently ecstatic to find the driver for multi-touch on the Dell Support page, something I figured I'd never get privileged to since this doesn't have a Synaptics touchpad.
Everything works as it;s supposed to, as far as the options go under the Dell Pointing Devices menu. However, I noticed that two-finger options are missing, specifically a two-finger right click. This is odd, seeing as there are plenty of other two-finger options, and since two-finger right click has become a standard with multi-touch touchpads.
So my question is, is there anything I can do to get two-finger right click? I don't see any options officially provided by Dell, so I'm totally okay with installing software or drivers from somewhere else, as long as they work. I haven't been able to find anything myself, as it seems every driver and software in the world is developed with Synaptics in mind.

A:Two-Finger Right Click with Dell Multi-touch Touchpad?

I have the exact same question. I see that this was posted 3 years ago without a solution / reply :(

Hi everyone,
As the title says really. I just want to see if others are having similar problems before I bring this up with Dell directly. 
Some pertinent info: This is my second 'XPS 15 9560' and both laptops have had the exact same problem. All drivers are up to date, windows is up to date so I'm using the latest precision drivers from microsoft. I have tried disabling double tap dragging and enhanced precision to no avail.
I'll be happily moving my pointer around the screen and as I lift my finger to click on something the pointer will jump about 5 - 10mm in a random direction, often causing me to click on the wrong thing.
The fact it's happened on both laptops tells me others must be having this problem too. I can't seem to find anything specific on the issue though.
It's driving me nuts and would like to know if anyone who has had this problem has managed to cure it? I've heard installing synaptics drivers can help with some touchpad issues but then you lose touchpad functionality so seems pointless to me, also this fix was for the 9550, last years model so not sure how relevant it is, although my understanding is it's the same touchpad.
Hopefully someone can help, thanks
Mark
