ThinkPad X1 7th Gen Touchpad quirk

OS: Windows 10


When moving the mouse pointer with the touchpad, if I happen to touch the touchpad with my thumb the pointer immediately stops moving and switches to scrolling mode.


I've tried disabling 2 finger scrolling but the motion is still blocked (but not scrolling).


I'm finding this behaviour really frustrating. On most other laptops I've used (MacBook, Dell) if 2 fingers are touching when vertically positioned relative to each other, the pointer isn't blocked from moving.


Is this behaviour observed in previous generations of the X1? Any suggestions on what I can try to fix this? I've played around with the settings but haven't managed to find a solution. Also, I couldn't find the drivers for the 7th Gen...

Re: ThinkPad X1 7th Gen Touchpad quirk

I tried on my X1 7th Gen but not able to reproduce your problem - put one finger on touchpad, put on 2nd finger and move 2nd one, cursor follows the direction of 2nd finger. 


Unless I move 2 fingers at same time it will do enlarge, or move up /down depends on the moving direction.


Do you mind to update all drivers along with BIOS then try again?
