    Task view option missing from touchpad swipe options


    Hi,

    I have just bought my first Windows computer in about 10 years. I got the Surface Book. I'm mostly loving it but am having one problem. I hope someone can help.

    Online I read (and in the store on the demo model I was able to test) that I was able to set 3 finger swipe to change between virtual desktops. On the one I've just brought home I can not - the only options are "switching apps" or "nothing".

    Anyone know why that option isn't showing up for me? Swiping between desktops is a big part of my workflow and I need it back! Worked in the store on a Surface Book for sure (I tested it a lot) so I'm confused why it's missing.

    Thanks a lot.

    :)

    How do i change precision touchpad settings?

    I've learnt about this 'Precision touchpad' but my laptop (Dell inspiron n5110) with Windows 10 enterprise x64 running on it, doesn't seem to support precision touchpad even though my 3 fingers flick works perfectly smooth. When
    I swipe up with 3 fingers, Cortana opens. And when I swipe down, settings open. But how do I change it to 'Task view' option instead of Cortana/Settings. And there are no Precision touchpad settings in my settings menu. Thanks, stay connected

  3. Three finger gesture to open task view in Windows 10 does not work after reset PC

    I am having a problem with the three finger gesture after reseting my PC. The PC has ELAN touchpad. Before I reset the PC, I can still open task view by swiping three fingers away from me on the touchpad. But after resetting, I still can use the touchpad
    - even scrolling by swiping 2 fingers, but this time CANNOT open task view by using the 3-finger gesture as told in the Get Started app. I am using Lenovo G40-80 running Windows 10 build 10240.

  4. Task view option missing from touchpad swipe options

    rssdvs,

    Welcome to the forum!

    Do you not have a Task View icon on the TaskBar that you can tap on?

    There is a tool called MultiSwipe:
    MultiSwipe 3 and 4 finger touchpad customizable utility for Windows

    It lets you map any key to your tablet's 3 finger or 4 finger directional swipes, so you can map the shortcut to change, close or open desktops to your touchpad.

    Several examples are provided, and you could consider trying it out, and seeing if it fits your needs.
