    I have a Lenovo Yoga 900-13isk Signature Edition. The 2-finger scroll function has been working just fine until recently, I was unable to scroll in any Windows apps, only on Firefox. Now it does not work at all and there are no settings available for me to enable it. I tried reinstalling the touchpad driver which has not done anything. When I go into the file registry and I browse under synaptics, there is nothing there. The only two files that I see under SYN_TP have a value of 0.

    Synaptics touchpad V1.2 - no option for one-finger scrolling?


    Hello,

    I recently bought a Lenovo Y700 running W10. I am trying to get it set up the way I like and cannot find an option to use one-finger scrolling with my touchpad (two-finger scrolling is an option and works just fine).

    I am updated to driver 19.0.19.1, but for some reason when I go to Mouse Properties it lists the driver version as 19.0.17.26. I'm not sure if this is related. Here are some screen caps of the driver discrepancy as well as the UI for the mouse, which has no option for one-finger scrolling. How do I enable this?

    3. Select "Properties," "Settings," "Advanced".

    4. Click the box next to "Enable scrolling" if this option is available.

    5. Click the arrow to the right of "Scrolling" to open the scrolling list and select two-finger scrolling to access the specific features.

    6. Click to enable for two-finger scrolling feature, then select "Adjust scrolling region" or the similar option, if available.

    7. Drag the scrolling region to cover a larger portion of the touchpad if you want to ensure you can scroll easily.
