Flex 5-1570 middle click from touchpad

I just got a new Flex 5-1570 and I can't figure out how to get a middle click from the touchpad.  I looks like it is not a Synaptic touchpad as the system won't let me load the Synatic driver.  So what do you have to do to get Windows 10 to see a middle click?  Thanks.

Re: Flex 5-1570 middle click from touchpad

Hi Krakken, Thanks but that does work either. It just comes up the same a a two finger tap (open new tab menu). There is also no button control options in the Mouse/Touchpad configuration menu. I think this is due to the use of the generic Windows 10 HID driver. There just seems to be no way to control the use of the touchpad like there is with a Synaptic touchpad using the Synaptic driver. This is kind of frustrating and is taking away from my enjoyment of the Flex 5. :-(

And we're back...
