    3/4-finger touchpad gestures stopped working


    2-finger gestures still work fine.


    Only thing that's changed, is I unplugged my laptop from my external monitor and AC adapter, and replugged both back in.

    Changing gestures configuration doesn't trigger it to start working.


    Please have this fixed. Gestures, when configured should just always work.


    I'm on a XPS15 9570 with all the latest drivers and BIOS update. Windows is fully up-to-date as well.

    :)

    Synaptics Touchpad 3 Finger Gestures not working in Windows 10 with Lenovo Flex 3

    My lenovo flex 3 has a synaptics based touchpad; the latest version from lenovo's website. 3 finger gestures work immediately after starting up, but if the laptop goes to sleep, or i close lid, theres a 50 percent chance that the 3 finger gestures stop working.
    Its strange, 3 finger swipes are the only gestures that stop; 3 finger tap will always invoke cortana, 4 finger tap will open action center.

    THINGS IVE TRIED

    1. Updating driver

    2. Hardware troubleshooter

    Having no luck, anyone else have this problem , or have a fix? Thanks!

  3. 4 finger gesture doesn't work under Windows 10 with Precision Touchpad

    Hi,
    My laptop has a Synaptic precision touchpad (there are no specific gesture menus under the mouse settings, just whatever windows shows me under the touchpad menu in the metro setting app). I'm running SCU 1803 as I'm in the release preview ring. I've had the advanced configuration for 3 fingers working and with both swiping and tapping function normally and can be customized ever since the 1703 update.

    However, I had NO options for 4 finger gestures. I already uninstalled the drivers from the device manager and let windows update it but I still can't activate a four gesture option. Any help would be appreciated since my precision touchpad should be supported after all. My laptop is an Acer Nitro 791g running the latest synaptic drivers 19.0.25.9. I tried contacting Microsoft's support but they weren't of much help. So I ignored this issue for a year until now.

    Today, I went through Microsoft catalogue and manually updated my synaptic driver to 19.4.29.3 which somehow enabled the 4 gesture controls. But these do not work even with uninstalling, reinstalling and restarting. (as if 4 fingers aren't recognized by the touchpad).

    Any idea on what I can do? Precision touchpads ARE supposed to support 4 fingers no?

    Thank you.
