    How do I disable the touchpad gesture that hits the back button on the internet browser?


    When I do a two finger swipe to the right on the touchpad of a Dell Windows laptop, it makes my current browser go back as if I hit the back button. I want to keep the scroll gestures but remove this, so I can still scroll left to right using 2-finger touchpad gestures.

    :)

    • Go to Settings.
    • Select Ease of Access.
    • Click Touchpad.
    • Under Touchpad, toggle the switch on or off.
    • You can also uncheck the box beside Leave touchpad on the when a mouse is connectedoption to disable it when you use a traditional mouse.
    Once done with the steps above, check if the issue will persist.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

  3. Disable Three Finger Gesture of touchpad

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you want to disable the three-finger gesture on your PC. For further clarity on the issue, please respond to the question below.



    1. What is the exact model of the PC?
    2. Which build version of Windows 10 are you using currently?


    Refer the article
    Which version of Windows operating system am I running?




    I would suggest you to refer the section Navigating using multi-finger gestures and the sub-sectionNavigating within applications using Three-Finger Flick
    from the article
    HP Notebook PCs - Using the TouchPad or ClickPad (Windows 10)
    to disable the Three Finger gesture.



    Note: The article talks about enabling the gesture, to disable the gesture we need to make sure the box next to Three Finger gesture is unchecked.



    Regards,

    How to disable gestures on my Ideapad L340 touchpad

    I have a new Ideapad L340. I want to disable gestures on the touchpad (especially tap to click). I followed the instructions at the Lenovo support site (URL listed at the bottom of this post). The instructions get you to Mouse Properties.
    Then the instructions say "click Settings or Advanced Settings."
    Unfortunately, on the Lenovo Ideapad L340 there is no Settings or Advanced Settings to click on in the Mouse Settings Dialog box.
    I have seen lots of suggestions that involve clicking on the tab to the right of the Hardware tab on the Mouse Properties dialog box, but there is no tap to the right of the Hardware tab.
    I am open to registry editing also.


    Is there anything I can do?


    Thanks
