ThinkPad 13: TrackPoint - Disable horizontal middle-button scroll

2016-11-26, 19:35 PM

I have a ThinkPad 13. I installed the latest Elan drivers (version: 11.21.8.2; dated: November 17, 2016)

 

Is there a way to disable horizontal scroll when using middle-button + TrackPoint? This post describes similar behavior and fix for another model: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/ThinkPad-Can-I-disable-TrackPoint-from-scrolling-horizontally/ta-p/1497832.

 

I see a settings file: C:\Program Files\Elantech\ETDSetup.ini, but there are a ton of settings in there. Some screen shots...

 

I want to disable this:

 

 

 

 

 

And default to this:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Control Panel does not have options for this setting:

 

 

 

Thanks!

I am going to bring this one back from the dead. I have a Yoga 260 and have this same issue. I would prefer to disable horizontal scrolling with the TrackPoint, but if I have to will disable it for the entire OS.

I have this question too. I see that there's a fix for Synaptics devices, but not for Elan. Can someone please help?

I have the same problem.  It doesn't seem like a solution exists yet but hopefully if enough of us complain this will get fixed.  I have a T460s for work that doesn't have this problem, but my Thinkpad Yoga 14 (Best Buy model) does this and it's very annoying.
