Touchpads on laptops running Windows are limited when it comes to finger gestures that the touchpad accepts. That’s unlike the touchpad on Macs that offer additional possibilities that Windows users until now were not able to use.
Two Finger Scroll tries to change that by adding to the functionality of Synaptics touchpads. The portable software program just needs to be executed for the new functionality to become available.
Most laptops have Synaptics touchpads which means that Two Finger Scroll should work on most that are sold with Windows.
The software program currently adds two features to the touchpad that allow the laptop user to do the following:
The application places an icon into the Windows System Tray upon startup that can be used to configure it. A right-click and the selection of Settings from the menu will display the settings of the software program.
It is here that the user can define specific scrolling settings from speed and acceleration to the scroll type and mode.
The tapping menu contains additional configurations to configure other finger gestures from one plus one finger to three fingers which can be set to mouse buttons currently.
Two Finger Scroll adds the functionality to the Windows laptop without installing new drivers for the touchpad. That is its greatest strength. The portable software program can be downloaded from the Codeplex website of the project. (via Lifehacker)
