No SimpleTap after start up?

Hi. I've updated SimpleTap yesterday and after the update, SimpleTap no longer starts up automatically. Before the update, there was always the SimpleTap dot on screen and when right-clicking on the desktop, I could enable/disable the dot. But now the dot and the enable/disable function have disappeared. If I want to use it, I have to use Windows Search and start it manually. How can I fix this?

Re: No SimpleTap after start up?

I agree this is a problem.  We should have a patch for this issue soon.  I will post the details here when the patch is available.


To work-around the issue for now, you could add a shortcut to SimpleTap.exe to the startup folder as follows:

1.  click on the start button

2.  click on "all programs"

3.  right-click on "startup" and then click on "open"

4.  in the explorer window for "startup", right-click and then select "New" -> "Shortcut"

5.  browse to "c:\program files\lenovo\simpletap\simpletap.exe" and then add "/watermark" to then end of the location like this:




Very sorry for this inconvenience.

And we're back...
