T430S - Windows 8 touchpad features do not work

2013-01-14, 16:15 PM

I have downloaded and installed the latest UltraNav driver for my T430S.  However, the "Edge Swipe" feature within the UltraNav driver does not work.  I also noticed on other forums/boards that the "Edge Swipe" feature does not work. 

 

This is supposed to be one of the coolest features of Windows 8 using a touchpad.  Has anyone with a T430S been able to get the "Edge Swipe" feature to work?

I have not read any forums or support sites of anyone that could get the edge swipe feature to work in the latest Ultranav driver.  Why does Lenovo include the edge swipe option when it does not work at all.

 

The generic Synaptics Touchpad driver includes the edge swipe feature and works very well.  It also includes a nice  2 finger tap for right clicking,

 

However, Thinkpad's trackpoint does not work very well with the generic Synaptics Touchpad driver.  The OS dialog boxes do not scroll and the browsers do not smooth scroll.

 

When will Lenovo address the issue?  I have tried other laptops (without touchscreen) that are optimized for Windows 8.  They have a gesture friendly touchpad with the edge swipe gesture for Windows 8.

Hi mrclooney,

 

Are you using the latest driver from the Synaptics, 16.2.21?
