I prefer the click approach on the Apple Macbook Air, where you can click anywhere on the trackpad to get a normal (left) click. On the Yoga 13, you can click anywhere EXCEPT the lower-right side of the button, where it instead registers a right-click. Thta's kind of annoying because I have to be aware of where on the trackpad I can click and where I can't.
Does anyone know of a way to turn off the right-click area and just make the entire trackpad a left-click?
I have already turned off the tap-click ability, so I'm just talking about clicks where you press the surface of the trackpad down.

I was able to get it working by registry modification.
After these changes it should work in the same way as on MacBook.
Do it on your own risk and be careful with registry.

I am in awe, thank you perevalov! It works perfectly. Hopefully Synaptics will put this option into the GUI, but in the meantime I don't mind doing a registry tweak.

Thank you so much! it worked really well. One slight issue: the left button area still only acts as a left click and wont register a two finger click when both fingers are on the touchpad. Is there any way to fix this? if not, no biggie, it's definitely not a huge issue.

perevalov, once again, brilliant. Thanks very much for spending the time to figure it out.
A tip for those making the changes: Create new registry entries called LeftButtonZoneR_OLD and LeftButtonZoneT_OLD (both as 32-bit DWORD values), and save the current values of LeftButtonZoneR and LeftButtonZoneT in those new entries. That way you can revert the changes any time you like, and you don't need to store a backup registry file. The "_OLD" entries are simply ignored by the system.

I think I have a slight improvement for the fix on this thread. You do not need to change the LeftButtonZoneR and LeftButtonZoneT values. Instead, just click on RightButtonAction and change the value from 2 to 1. I think in the past I tried changing the zone values, and from what I can remember it totally disabled the right button area. Changing the value for RightButtonAction to 1 does not disable the right button area, it actually just makes it work like the rest of the trackpad. Just like the trackpad on the MacBook I used to use.
You do also have to change the ExButton4Action value to 1 like perevalov said. Just changing the RightButtonAction value will do nothing.
Thanks perevalov for finding this fix.
