Settings not saved

2017-03-15, 6:47 AM

Hi!

When I change the Synaptics gesture settings for the trackpad on my new Yoga 20FQ they only work until I restart the laptop.

After reboot the settings is back to default.

Any hints in that?

Leif

Hi LeifAnd , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

You can try the steps in this article changing value on the registry :

 

"Open up regedit.exe

Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Synaptics\SynTP\Install

Note this is LOCAL MACHINE, not CURRENT USER.

Look for a key in that Install folder called DeleteUserSettingsOnUpgrade

Double click and change the value to 0

Now go back to the Synaptics control panel, set everything how you like, and reboot. "

 

Hope this helps.

Update us how it goes for you.

 

Regards

Thanks for the help, but the Synaptics settings still gets reset after restart.

Any other suggestions?

Leif

Hi again!

Now it seems to work!

When I opened the setting through Windows Trackpad/Mouse settings it works.

Earlier I made the changes through the Lenovo settings app.

Hi LeifAnd , 

 

Greetings.

 

Good that it works .

The registry provided in the article are intended for Windows synaptics while lenovo setting is only a management tool that is dependent on the same Windows settings that may have misconfigured.

 

Please don't hesitate to visit our community at anytime. 

Best luck to all your endeavors. 

 

Regards
