If you haven't updated the driver for your laptop's
you may want to think about doing so, particularly if your laptop has a
Synaptics touchpad. As a user on Hardware Zone forums
discovered, there's a new driver
from Synaptics that enables multitouch gestures as well as two-finger scrolling
and three-finger click. What's really cool is that this driver enables this
functionality for older laptops that didn't previously support these functions.
Although it was thought that older touchpads were not capable
of multi-touch, this driver update appears to prove otherwise. Another pleasant
surprise is the unlocking of two- and three-finger gestures since even modded
drivers were not able to achieve this.
The drivers actually come from HP, but they will likely work
on other laptops with Synaptics touchpads as well. There are drivers available
for Windows XP, Vista, and 7.
