  1. Touchpad - Disabling 3 fingers gestures


    Recently I'm having issue with my touchpad because when I accidentally put 3 fingers it triggers events I don't want to (like turning back to Desktop and seeing recent app).

    I have an ASUS but ASUS Smart Gesture doesn't allow to disable it by GUI so I decided to set to "0" some registry with regedit from the path "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\ASUS\ASUS Smart Gesture".

    The registry I edited are:

    1. bThreeFingerDown
    2. bThreeFingerTapping
    3. bThreeFingerUp
    4. bThreeRightAndLeft

    Unfortunately it doesn't change anything and when I reboot those registries comes back to "1".

    How can I disable 3 fingers gestures?

  2. 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.
