    How to disable gesture control on a Windows 10 PC


    I have recently updated my PC with Windows 10 and I am currently encountering some issues with unwanted gestures detection by the OS. It seems like, if I move my mouse down slowly, Windows makes a toolbar appear at the center of the screen, displaying every window I currently have open.

    I have uploaded a picture of the toolbar on the link below. Is there any way to disable that event in the settings? My Windows Version number is 1903.

  2. Disable Flicks Gesture in Windows 10.

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We understand the difficulties you are facing with the Flicks Gesture in Windows on your Edge browser. We appreciate your effort in troubleshooting the issue and thanks for providing us the detail information in the post. To have a clarity on this
    issue, we need some information.

    • What is the Windows version and build installed?
    • What is the make and model of the PC?
    • Do you have the Ink feature enabled in the PC?
    • Are you looking to disable the Flicks Gesture option completely from the PC or just for Microsoft Edge?

    If you are using Ink feature option and you are in
    Windows 10, then we would suggest you to disable the
    Ink feature and check if that helps you to solve the problem.

    However, we would suggest you to change the registry settings for the Flicks Gesture.

    Registry disclaimer: Important this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry
    incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/322756/how-to-back-up-and-restore-the-registry-in-windows

    1. Press Windows + R and type
      regedit
      .
    2. Navigate to this location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Wisp\Pen\SysEventParameters
    3. Once you click on SysEventParameters and then on Right pane you need to click
      FlickMode and change the Hexadecimal value to
      3
      and click Ok.
    4. Restart the PC and check if you are able to disable it.

    We await your response.

  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.
