Problemwith lenovo motion application

i have just recently bought a new B550 ideacentre (with touch screen)


i tried out the Lenovo motion application for the first time and it worked fine initially. i have now had the computer for 2 weeks and thought i would try it out again and see if it would be a useful application to use. unfortunately i can now get the application to open / start. i have done a number of windows update as prompted which may have caused a compatibility issue but not too sure. can anyone suggest how to get this app working again.

Re: Problemwith lenovo motion application

hi mass,


Welcome to the Forums.


If an application is supported by Lenovo Motion Control, you should see a hand gesture on the upper right hand corner and the webcam should light up.

 - Link to picture


If the webcam doesn't turn ON nor the hand gesture doesn't appear, can you try the following:

1. Look for the Motion Control app under the notification area and check "Enable Motion Control"

2. Open Task Manager (press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC) > Starup Tab and enable Motion Control.


Check this thread for a list of Motion Control compatible apps.
