Two finger right click not working

So I have been trying to be able to use two fingers to right click.  I have updated my mouse driver and even checked on the mouse options to make sure it is checked but it still wont work.  I have been trying all morning to look up solutions and nothing seems to work.  I have a Lenovo Yoga 710.  Just got it about a week ago.  Any help would be appreciated!

 

Thanks

Re: Two finger right click not working

Hi  james409, 

I'm not sure if the feature is a part of the driver of the current Synaptics driver so I did some research and this is what you can do. Now since this step are concerning the registry, please back up the registry before making the changes. 

  1. Press Windows Button + R, type “regedit”, and then click OK.
  2. Navigate to the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Synaptics > SynTP > TouchPadPS2
  3. Locate “2FingerTapAction” and double click it.
  4. Change the Value data: to “2”.
  5. Click OK. Exit Registry Editor.
  6. Restart your machine or log-out and back in.

If you do not see and entry for “2FingerTapAction”, Add it by following the steps below:

  1. Right-click, select NEW > DWORD (32 bit) Value
  2. Type 2FingerTapAction, and then press ENTER.
  3. Right-click PreferExternalManifest, and then click Modify.
  4. Enter Value Data “2” and select Hexdecimal.
  5. Click OK. Exit Registry Editor.
  6. Restart your machine or log-out and back in.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Re: Two finger right click not working

Having the same issue. It would be appreciated if someone who has the yoga 14" knows a workaround.
