TouchPad 3 finger gestures not working

Q: TouchPad 3 finger gestures not working

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 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.

inspiron 5447 Win10 - Touchpad, Multi Finger Gestures Not Working.
I have this problem over a year,
HERE I AM LOOKING FOR HELP AGAIN, IS THERE ANY NEW SOLUTION FOR THIS ISSUE ?
i heard about many costumers facing the same issue.
I tried unsuccessfully some fixing suggestions from the technical support over the year.
I still have the same touchpad problem and I very disappoint and its very hard for me using a new pc without multi touch over a year without any solution.
I have a feeling that DELL ignore the problem and ignore the costumers.
I am sorry that i wait for solution over the year, it was better if i was return it in time and get my money back.
for me it was a very bad costumers experience and ill avoid of buying DELL products in the near future again.

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.

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!

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

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 ?

Hello TJ, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Double check using the tutorial below to make sure that they are still turned on. Your settings will look different but similar since it's a different brand.

In addition, double check to make to see if you have the latest touchpad driver 1.0.36 version for your PC installed.

Hi.
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.

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!

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.

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. The recovery partition automatically installed the Elantech Drivers for the TouchPad and the downloads website showed only Elantech drivers. 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'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 19.2.11.38 (21/07/2016). Would really appreciate your help as I was really looking forward for the new gesture to switch virtual desktops. Thanks.

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.19.0.15.2) 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?

This stopped working after the last major Windows 10 update (the one that introduced the three-finger horizontal scroll for scrolling through active applications). All other gestures seem to work OK, only the 2-finger scroll gesture has stopped working. I have all the latest updates installed, and all the latest drivers.

Hello, I have a brand new Dell Inspiron 5558 with Windows 8.1 64b installed. I can't use touchpad gestures, no scroll, no pinch to zoom, etc. I have installed the latest drivers from here but after install (which says it is succesfull) nothing is showing up in my taskbar or control panel or program files. 

A:Dell Touchpad gestures not working on Dell Inspiron 5558

I found the fix here. Install Synaptics 19.15.2 Windows 10 64 Bit  even tough you have Windows 8.1.
Install like this:
1) Extract the files to another folder
2) Open the folder with extracted files copy the path of the x64 drivers
3) Go to Control Panel>Device Manager>Mice and other pointing devices
4) Right click mice and other pointing devices, select Update Driver>From Hard-Disk
5) Add the x64 drivers path
6) Select Dell Touchpad
7)  Install drivers
8) Restart

My touchpad no longer responds to finger movements to scroll,zoom etc.
Works fine as far as moving the mouse pointer goes. Guess I've tweaked something or turned it off - anyone any ideas how to get it back?

You could try doing a system restore, If possible select a time when you know eveything was working correctly. Fabe

I have a L460 running on Windows 7 and to my surprise no gestures (pinch zoom, two finger scroll, etc.) are working despite p19, 20 in the manual describing this functionality. They suggest the program might not be receptive, but even tested on Chrome which works on another machine. Any 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
