2 finger touchpad scroll doesn't work

Q: 2 finger touchpad scroll doesn't work

I updated my computer about 1/2 weeks ago and the 2 touch scroll feature doesn't work. I went to advanced touchpad settings to see if I could fix it there but the results were that it is on. I went to check if maybe I did it wrong and sure enough it still
didn't work at all. Can you please either give me a step by step guide on fixing this or a link to a bit of software that fixes this?
And yes the touchpad is up to date, the system won't even let me click it.

I have looked at dozens of posts for this, but have as of yet not found a single solution that works. I have a Toshiba satelitte laptop running windows 7 and the touchpad scroll doesn't work at all. I have tried downloading the Alps drivers and the Synaptics, but neither of them solve this issue and it is really annoying. PLEASE HELP.

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.

This problem appears on Windows 8.1

When my laptop was previously working i could two-finger scroll on pages and such,
Now i cant, and i cannot find a setting for it anywhere.

but i would much prefer not running an extra processor and just using the laptops default function.

Hi. I bought a brand new Thinkpad T470s with Win10pro preinstalled. I have installed all latest win10 updates and lenovo updates and also BIOS is updated. I have the following problems that are most likely caused by Touchpad and the fact that it is a Microsoft Precision Touchpad. - I had to set "Choose how many lines to scroll" to value 8 in Settings/Mouse to get adequate scrolling speed in Google Chrome and most of other apps that I use - 2-finger scrolling freezes and delays now and then in SimpleNote- there is no way to adjust 2-finger scrolling speed in File Explorer and MS Edge Explorer. "Choose how many lines to scroll each time" setting in "Settings" and "Control Panel/Mouse" has no effect on touchpad 2-finger scrolling speed. I dont really use Edge as I prefer Chrome but this slow scrolling in File Explorer is unacceptable. Even my old Thinkpad X201 is better.- 2-finger scrolling in Device Manager is too jumpy and slow to use comfortably- 2-finger scrolling in MS Word 2010 was also jumpy couple of times, but most of the time it works OK- I use Gmail in a separate window which I created from Chrome with "Add to desktop" option and "Open as window" checked. When Gmail is used from this separate window, 2-finger scrolling is jumpy and delayed, also very unacceptable.  I suspect that these problems must be somehow caused by that Touchpad is Microsoft Precision Touchpad.

Hi!
I got my Precision M4800 and I'm really about it.
But! I dislike the touchpad for one reason : No option to enable one-finger scroll. I'm kinda "old school" with touchpad and I don't like using my the two-fingers scroll and all the "fancy " features and the touchpad software don't have this specific feature.I tried the old driver version (7.0), but it's not compatible with Windows 8.1.
I can see a lot of values in the regedit ( HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Alps and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Alps ) but I don't know which one it can be,
Do you know if a generic ALPS drivers exist? Do you have a solution for this issue?
Thanks!

Run the DellTPad.exe file in C:\Program Files\DellTPad.  This will give you an older interface which includes the one-finger scroll.

On a Dell Latitude E5530 with the Alps touchpad, I find that the two-finger scroll gesture works very poorly in one direction. (I have the "reverse direction" option selected, and I can easily scroll webpages down, but up sometimes works okay, but often scrolls very very little at a time, or I have to press down quite hard on the touchpad to get it to scroll correctly).
I also notice that when I two-finger-tap to get the right-click menu, it often misses it, and I have to do it again, harder. But it doesn't seem that just "harder" is the issue, because two-finger scrolling webpages down always works well; it's just up that works poorly/ requires me to press much harder.
This is under Windows 10 Pro 64-bit; has happened under all Windows 10 versions (Anniversary, Creators Update, and Fall Creators Update), and has the Microsoft-signed, Alps-labelled, version 10.1207.101.103 date 6/23/2015 driver.
I have tried reducing the TouchGuard sensitivity; that didn't help. I've turned off all other gestures just to make sure that the touchpad wasn't misinterpreting my gestures - that also did not help.
Any suggestions?
thanks,-Jay

Hi, I'm pretty useless when it comes to figuring things out with computer software, ect. But over the past 2 days, my touchpad has suddenly stopped working properly.The issue is that when I hold any key on the keyboard, I cannot move my mouse, nor can i use 2 fingers to move the mouse, or have any more than 1 finger on the touchpad, it just locks the cursor into place and i cannot move it. I have tried a few suggestions, such as turning off palm-tracking, and going into Regedit and setting the values of "disable when typing" to 0, and after restarting, the issue is still the same, I can't move my mouse whilst using the keyboard, or having more than 1 finger on the touchpad. I went back into regedit, the values were still at 0, I went into the mouse settings, and palmtracking was still turned off. I even tried installing a different driver, but once I installed it and restarted, the computer said there was an error and had to restart - this wasn't fixed until I reset my entire computer, which took hours.Though I am not sure if I went about installing the driver correctly, as I did not uninstall any previous driver. I just don't know what to do now to fix this, I've tried everything! And this is especially infuriating for me as I'm a gamer, and because of this I am unable to properly play any games!

I recently got a new laptop with Windows 8 and upgraded to Windows 8.1.

I absolutely love the two finger scroll feature. It's very convenient in web browsers and the start menu. However, it doesn't always work, and I can't find a trend for when it works. It simply works sometimes and not others.

Where can I configure the settings so that I always have two finger scroll?

A:Two finger scrolling doesn't always work

Thru playing around I found that 2 finger scroll won't work if one finger starts off of the edge of the pad. Make sure that both fingers plant on the pad itself when starting a scroll. I operate my pad with my left hand and I had a lot of trouble accidentally hitting the left edge when I first got win 8. I long ago disabled whatever the left edge swipe was. The same might be true for the right edge for right-handers.

Currently 2 finger scroll is reliable for me. I guess it could also be a driver issue with your particular pad.

Okay, I think this question is too in depth and will be hard to answer, but if anyone could help out that'd be great.

I was deleting files because I had a virus kind of absentmindedly. I realize this was stupid of me. But everytime the computer told me it "found" a virus (which it really wasn't deleting because the virus was taking over) it was a file with a MS in front of it. So, while I was deleting files (Task Manager/Processing), I deleted anything with MS. But then when I finally got the virus to stop working my middle button of a three-button mouse scroll thing is not working so that I cannot scroll on websites or the like. Its not like it's absolutely horrible that it doesn't work anymore, it's just annoying.

I have a Dell Latitude E6400. Does anyone know how I can get the middle of the three-button mouse to work?

I attempted to do System Restore, but the virus wiped out all of the restore dates on my computer so for some reason I cannot click a date.

Anyone out there have experience with the lsit box vertical scroll bar not working properly in MS Access (Office 2003 Professional)?

All office updates are installed.

I have tried this on two separate machines with identical results.

I create a list box on an unbound form and set the list box data source to query a table.

The list box displays with the verticle scroll bar over on the right as it should be but clicking the scroll bar does nothing. It is as if the scroll bar isn't there. When I click or click and drag on the scroll bar, the row(s) behind that part of the scroll bar get highlighted just as if I were clicking on them (the rows) and not on the scroll bar.

Now, I got it to work but in an odd way... If, afer opening the form, I manually click to bring the focus to some other window on the computer or even some other form within the same application and then set the focus back to the form in question, then the scroll bar works properly.

I will try to build a workaround by having another form "lead-in" to the form bearing the listbox/scroll bar.

Has anyone else encountered this and come up with a more elegant solution?

Hi, i've been searching this issue on Google with literal no topic about it so i'll just make the first one here:

From a time i have an A4Tech V7 Gaming mouse that works perfect in Windows 7. Since a few weeks ago, after Microsoft deployed a patch on Windows 10, my scrolling wheel stopped working both on softwares and games. After 1-2 restarts it would go away and this kept on for about a week, and i guess after that, another patch was deployed that fixed it. Last night a new patch was deployed that returned the issue and this time, even after 3 restarts the scroll still doesn't work. Is there anything to be done so i don't have to wait anymore for those guys?

Clicking the scroll [Mouse3] works, scrolling up and down is what doesn't work.

Hi, can only suggest general things to do.
Have you tried uninstalling, reinstalling, updating the mouse driver?

Please try following the pattern of actions here:

Yes, it's talking about a Microsoft mouse, but the principles apply- just adapt as appropriate to your mouse.

It appears that my ability to use the Auto-Scroll function (holding the middle mouse button whilst moving the red joystick and having the page scroll automatically in whichever direction I moved the red joystick) has stopped working. What happens when I try to use it is a circle with an up and down arrow appears and I am only able to scroll if I move the mouse cursor beyond the circle, either up or down. I have no idea why the auto-scroll is behaving differently as I did nothing that change it's setting.

Hello everyone.

Recently, I did a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium on my MSI GE600. At first, the touchpad behaved the way it should. But now, it is not even detected. I rebooted the laptop and it worked again. Most of the time it doesn?t work though.

I have installed the Elantech driver of the MSI site, so I?d like to know what you think the problem is and how to fix it.

Thank you so much in advance.

A:Touchpad often doesn't work

I have recently dealt with this same issue on an Asus laptop. The touchpad does not function correctly, but the issue is sporadic. A USB mouse works fine.

The first thing I needed to determine was if this was a hardware problem or a software problem (OS or Drivers).

So what I did was wait until the touchpad stopped working and then rebooted with a Linux Ubuntu USB stick connected. Booting into Ubuntu I found the touchpad still did not respond. This told me that the problem was hardware. The touchpad has to be replaced.

So that is what I would suggest. You need to know what kind of problem you are dealing with so you know in which direction to focus your efforts.

Ubuntu for USB here:
Download | Ubuntu
(You have the option to "Try It" or "Install". You just need to try it)

Note to Admin: I think this is the operating system itself, as I remember there have been updates inbetween (and after). If this is some sort of virus, I apologize and please move to appropriate thread.
 
On my HP PC with windows 8.1 I've always been able to just log in. The last 2 days though, the touchpad/keyboard won't react (so I can't insert my password) when I first start the computer. When I then command "restart" (with the mouse, which does work), I get the same loginscreen but this time I can use my touchpad/keyboard.
 
So this problem is manageble (just always restart after just havign started the computer ), but I would like to understand why it goes wrong at the initial start up. Any ideas?

A:Touchpad doesn't work at first

What is the make and model of this computer?
 
Have you looked in the Device Manager to see if there is a problem with the touchpad driver?

I don't get why my touchpad doesn't work when I unplug or turn off my mouse. I found all the settings. I realize I may get an answer I don't want. Download drivers etc..

I can live with this problem (unless I suddenly don't have my other laptop), especially after spending the night searching for, downloading and installing drivers for my other laptop. I was surprised to find that the windows 7 professional (my home machine is windows 7 home) didn't provide me with network and other drivers. I wasn't seeing any wireless connections. Initially I was using an internet stick and the problem wasn't visible. I take that machine out with me. I had it home last night and that's when I found the problem. And trying to get that touchpad driver had me wondering about this one. I don't use my laptop keyboard on my home machine, preferring a natural contour full keyboard I plug in, so I never deal with the touchpad, otherwise I'd be hitting it all the time, which I used to do. I am a mouse guy. If I had to to take this machine out, the touchpad thing would drive me nuts. Any thoughts?

Hi Aarby,

Some computers have keyboard shortcuts which could be a separate key on the keypad or a combination of the Fn + any other Function key depending on the system model for enabling or disabling the touchpad. Since you have not mentioned the system model of your computer, some steps you may try are:

1.Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Device Settings>Click Enable (if disabled).

2.Check under Mouse Properties in Control Panel>Hardware>Mouse. There may be a check-box for Disable Touchpad/Pointing Stick when external USB mouse is present. If this is checked and you connect an external mouse to your laptop, the touchpad may be disabled.

Additionally, we recommend you check the system manual or try some of the steps mentioned in the link below.
