Is anyone having a problem with two-finger tap to right click? Two-finger tap to right click was working fine for a while, but it suddenly stopped on my Yoga 13.
I reinstalled the touchpad drivers, and it worked for a few days, then it stopped again. Two-finger click still works fine. So does one-finger tap to left click.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks for your reply, Andy1990zx. I tried that, but that didn't work. The driver started again, but still now two-finger right click.
Hmm... I though it might have been an antivirus problem. I'm using Kaspersky. I disabled and uninstalled the antivirus, and the problem still persists. Any other suggestions?

Two finger tap for right click has never been a default feature from Lenovo. The only thing that is offered is edge-swipe.
If you follow the Yoga 13 thread on notebookreview.com, you will find that I've created a work around to enable all the advanced features. Follow these instructions:
Download the OEM Synaptics drivers for when you go through the instructions above:

Thank you, djklmnop, for the fix and extensive instructions. I'll miss the two-finger tap, but I can live with two-finger clicking with some practice, I think. More importantly, your suggested settings -- only slightly modified to my taste -- make using the Yoga much more pleasant to use. Especially when typing. Before, I was getting all kinds of trackpad interference. Now, it's not interfering at all.

...Then again, uninstalling the Synaptic driver, rebooting, and reinstalling it (the driver on drive D gave back the two-finger tap context menu. So it's apparently the default action of Lenovo's driver version even though there's no control setting to turn it on/off or adjust it.
Palm rejection and everything else works as nicely as with djklmnop's method, for my tastes. Looks like I just needed to uninstall/reinstall the driver to get it to work as intended. Smoothly and precisely, with two-finger tap included.
Edit: The specific action that disables two-finger tap right-click functionality is unchecking Edge Swipe in the Synaptic control panel. Once you do that, checking it again will not re-enable two-finger tapping. You have to uninstall/reboot/ then reinstall the original drivers found on the D: drive, in the "drivers" folder (drivers\Touchpad\Setup.exe).
I've changed most of the other settings in that control panel without losing two-finger tapping. I think it's just the Edge Swipe check box that does it.
