    How to change from two-finger scrolling back to one-finger scrolling?


    This morning, I decided to make the jump to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1, and I have to say, the design looks simpler to use, but this new OS software has done something with my touchpad. Originally, on my Windows 8.1, I was able to scroll through whatever web pages or folders in my computer with one finger using my touchpad. With this new update, initially, I thought it broke my touchpad completely, but the problem has been narrowed down to having to now use two fingers to scroll in the most awkward way as this touchpad doesn't seemed to be designed for two finger scrolling. Is there a way for me to change this back? Would I have to revert back to Windows 8.1 to get my one finger scrolling back?

    The laptop I am using is a Gateway NE56R34u, and the touchpad is an ELAN. Any and all help would be much appreciated.

    :)

    Toshiba Windows 7 upgrade to Windows 10 scrolling issues

    I have upgraded from the Window 7 to the Windows 10.

    * Before, I was able to scroll on my touchpad with one finger, and now I can still scroll up/down, but I have to use two fingers to do so.

    * Help, I want the one finger scrolling to come back, and so how do I do that.

    *I went to the control panel and found the two finger scrolling, but nothing for the one finger scrolling. Is this not available anymore?

    Hopefully, this can be easily fixed.

    Thank you for your help in advance! How to change from two-finger scrolling back to one-finger scrolling? :)

    How to change from two-finger scrolling back to one-finger scrolling?

    Would Gateway drivers for their touchpad be one area to explore ?

    I was looking at a Logitech touchpad, and it appears their drivers are what controls the response/numbers of fingers/digits.
