    can't scroll with 2 fingers

    How to disable "start scrolling with 2 fingers, keep scrolling with 1 finger"?

    I've noticed this behavior across several laptops with Synaptics touchpads and Windows 10:

    1. start scrolling with 2 fingers
    2. remove 1 finger
    3. still scrolling, but with 1 finger

    I'd like to change this behavior to this:

    1. start scrolling with 2 fingers
    2. remove 1 finger
    3. scrolling ends, now the 1 finger is moving the pointer

    Is it possible to tweak this somewhere?
