Just followed these steps and it's working great! This is exactly what I was looking for, thanks for finding this and providing the detailed instructions!
New option for middle click is a nice bonus too

Thanks for the registry change instructions. I just got this issue with my thinkpad helix after disabling edge swipe and luckily came across this thread.
Your fix works perfectly!

I have had the Y2P for about a week now, and I have not been able to get the touch pad to work properly.
I have resintalled the drivers provided on the D drive, downloaded the ones from the website, and even installed the Win8.1 drivers for the Yoga 13, and no matter what I do I cannot get the two finger touch to respond as right click.
Is anyone else experiencing this issue?
I have less than a week to make up my mind on whether I am keeping the Y2P or the Yoga 13. I know the as an early adopter there would be some issues, but it seems that Lenovo did not learn from the issues that the Yoga 13 had at launch. (wifi, touch pad, etc).
The main reason for keeping the Y2P is the back lit and stronger keyboard, but at this point I am seriously considering the Yoga 13 as much better option.

Amittoor Thank you so much for this!!
I have been working on a fix for a week. I had actually tried this before, but the original drivers did not have the option under the menu identified. So I installed Synaptics drives (not lenovo's), and with this "patch" it worked perfect thank you!!!
Now if I could get a simple fix for my yellows....sigh

So after spending a few hours on this, here's the solution if you want to disable Edge Swipe while still retaining two finger tap right click while using the Lenovo provided drivers to maintain the unique yoga features:
1. Disable Edge Swipe via the normal Synaptics settings: Control Panel -> Mouse -> Device Settings -> Settings -> Edge Swipe -> Uncheck.
2. To manually re-enable two finger tap, hit windows key + x, select "run", enter "regedit" then hit enter, and on the left pane browse to the following location:
HKEY_USERS\<SID name for your current user>\Software\Synaptics\SynTP\TouchPadPS2
3. 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.
4. Next in the right pane, and this is what disabling Edge Swipe actually changes which breaks everything, find the MultiFingerTapFlags key and change it from a 2 to a 3 (it's originally a 3 before you disable Edge Swipe).
5. 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".
Unless you have multiple users, your SID is most likely the longest string, for instance mine is "HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1669614795-426116693-2193257368-1003." Enjoy.
EXCELLENT! This is what I was looking for. Somehow this appears to have broken in the upgrade to Windows 8.1 also. I also had to go to the task manager details tab and end the assorted SynTP processes and restart them for the changes to take effect.
