Re: Yoga 13 Win8.1 no more multi-touch gestures

I also tried that driver as it is the one from the Yoga 2 Pro but had no luck.

 

Looking at the Microsoft forums others have this issue with other laptops. It looks like the touched companies were told to remove this feature by MS. Hopefully they will see the errors of their ways and return the two finger tap rather than only allowing a two finger click (pressing down hard until a mechanical click is made).

Re: Yoga 13 Win8.1 no more multi-touch gestures

Found the solution here (thank you thunberg!), reprinted and slightly edited for convenience:

 

1. To manually re-enable two finger tap, hit windows key + r, enter "regedit" then hit enter, and on the left pane browse to the following location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Synaptics\SynTP\TouchPadPS2

2. In the right pane double click on 2FingerTapAction and change the value to a "2" for right click, or a "4" for middle click (I use 2). Also double click on 2FingerTapPluginID and clear any value it may have.

3. Next in the right pane, find the MultiFingerTapFlags key and change it from a 2 to a 3

4. As a bonus, if you want to enable three finger tap for middle click, double click on 3FingerTapAction and change the value to a "4", also clear any value for 3FingerTapPluginID and set 3FingerTapPluginActionID to "0".

This helped me out; I had to do things a little differently, perhaps because I was running Win 8 Pro. The 2FingerTapAction and MultiFingerTapFlags values were nonexistent in my registry, so I added them as DWORDs, with values 2 and 3 respectively. It seems to work, and those were the only 2 values I added. Thank you SO much for finding the solution!

Re: Yoga 13 Win8.1 no more multi-touch gestures

does anyone know if theres a modified driver\utility to adjust settings for the 3 and 4 finger gestures?

 

a friend of mine has a zenbook and they have a utilty called "asus smart gestures" with very cool gesture effects. 

 

for example, a "osx-like zoom out with thumbnails of open windows " sort of thing

 

the yoga's 3 and 4 finger flick are a pain to look at. any thoughts?? thankss
