Yoga 900 Synaptics Two Finger Tap (Right Click Menu) has NEVER Worked (Fix Listed Here)

2017-07-15, 14:43 PM

There seem to be many Lenovo laptops in which two finger touch to open the right click menu has never worked.  There has only been one driver update for the Synaptics touchpad since my Yoga 900's release in late 2015.  It didn't work on either version of the driver.  Lenovo prevents me from installing generic Synaptics driver updates.

 

On my Yoga 900, there is a registry fix for it.  I am posting it here (much later than I should have) so that other people can find it.  Using Google to search for the fix doesn't provide too much guidance, so hopefully this post will appear in future search results.

 

1.  Open regedit.  (Just type "regedit" in the search bar at the lower left of your screen.  Click on the "best match" for the search, where it says "Run command"

 

2.  Navigate to: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Synaptics\SynTP\Win10

 

3.  Right click on the "TwoFingerTapAction" DWORD on the right side of the screen.

 

4.  Change the value to "2" (without the quotes).

 

5.  Click OK

 

6.  Reboot

I confirm that this does not work for the Yoga 900 running Windows 10 Home. 

 

To make it work you have to update the registry values for the current user SID. Heres how:

 

Open Regedit  (Windows Flag + R then write Regedit)

 

Go to HKEY_USERS

 

Go to your SID, to identify what your SID is do the following:

- Windows Flag+R then write WMIC

- Write useraccount get name,sid

- Your should get all users along with the SID, simply look for yours and write down the SID

 

Go back to the regedit and expand your SID

 

Go to Software

 

Go to Synaptics

 

Go to SynTP

 

Go to TouchPadRMIHID2cTM3066

 

Look for the Dword on the right panel under the name 2FingerTapAction and double click it, change the value to 2

Look for the Dword on the right panel under the name 2FingerTapPlugInID and clear the value, leave it blank

Look for the Dword on the right panel under the name MultiFingerTapFlags and change the value to 3

 

Close Regedit

 

Restart your computer and enjoy the two finer tap right click.
