two finger tap right click not working

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.

 

Strange....

Re: two finger tap right click not working

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?

 

Thanks!

One-finger tap, edge swipes, all work.

 

Just the 2-finger tap for right-click.

The same thing has happened to my Yoga 13. Two-finger right-click was working fine until today. I can't think of anything I did that would affect it.

Re: two finger tap right click not working

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:

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/55148962/Enabling%20Synaptics%20Touchpad%20Advanced%20Features%20v06%201109...

 

Download the OEM Synaptics drivers for when you go through the instructions above:

Enjoy.

Re: two finger tap right click not working

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.

Re: two finger tap right click not working

...Then again, uninstalling the Synaptic driver, rebooting, and reinstalling it (the driver on drive DSmiley Happy 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.
