Windows 10 has touchpad gestures that everyone should know. You’ll need a precision touchpad to use them all, but experiment to see which ones work on your PC. We’ll show you how the gestures look on a Surface Pro 3.

Precision touchpads are a new kind of touchpad designed for PCs that run Windows 8. They’re great for using a variety of touch gestures to get around your PC quickly. Look for the message, “Your PC has a precision touchpad. If you think this guide is helpful, we have many more posts like this in our Windows 10 help, tips and tricks page. You can follow him on Twitter at markguim. Windows Central Windows Central. Mark Guim. Topics Windows 10 Help. See all comments How do you get it to open the Action Center?

This I was about to tell and also ask the same question. Cortana is default. Tap with 4 fingers. Works perfectly fine on my SP3. Ha nice! Well thanks to this article and your comment my productivity with windows 10 just increased insanely! Use 4 fingers :D. You choose which one you want. Cortana is the default. Try tapping with 4 fingers at the same time.

Action Center by default is a 4 finger tap. Cortana can also be called out by swiping your finger left from the right edge touchpad. Tap the touchpad with four fingers. You can also tap the touchpad with four fingers to bring up the action centre. If only acer upgrade the freaking drivers for my v Nice that my 2. My 2-year-old Asus NJV has the gestures too and they work perfectly. I’m impressed. Tnx for sharing. Thank you. Last ones are really useful. This explains some weird behavior I’ve been seeing.

Yeah, cleared up for me too haha, especially the switching between windows. I didn’t know about the three finger gestures! Thanks for this. Also have these on my ASUS without having a precision touchpad.

Symantec got updated shortly after the Windows 10 update, enabling the gestures. Thanks Mark. I do use the SP3 keypad a lot more on Windows 10 due to discovering these gestures, but, just discovered 2 more watching the video.

Glad to help! They should have gestures for touchscreens like two finger swipe up or down changes brightness etc. Thank you so much Mark! Swipe from right edge to bring Cortana up in listening mode. I wish Windows 10 had the 4 finger swipe to move between desktops like on the Mac. It works really well, and I now actually use mutliple desktops. But it is too many clicks in Windows still.

Keyboard shortcuts are nice. Would still like to see the four-finger swipe gesture as well. Well shit Anyone know the command or exe to open Cortana? I don’t have a precision touchpad, but my synaptics supports all those gestures, and a three-button press to run a command.

Would quite like to set it to Cortana. Does Hey Cortana work? Needs to be a command, not a keyboard shortcut. Unfortunately, Synaptics doesn’t allow an imitation keypress for it. Sony VAIO still haven’t got their line’s driver updated yet.. Synaptics updated their drivers recently and added their own implementation of these gestures.

I have the same problem. Any ideas where else I can go to change what gestures do? Anybody facing problems with Dell laptops? I have a Studio 15 and even basic scrolling doesn’t work. Gesture control is a distant dream. Have you tried uninstalling the touchpad driver and reinstalling it? I have. It did nothing. Am I the only one who don’t like gestures?? I only use the touchpad to move the mousepointer. Maybe I am stupid?? No, you’re not the only one, but MS don;t like to listen to us.

You can just turn them all off, how is that not listening to you? The Synaptics touchpad driver software taught me about all these gestures itself.

If you’re still confused, ask your CEO for assistance. He’s been doing this on his MacBook for years. I get random results when I strike the touchpad in a fit of rage with 8 fingers. Not only does my screen change, but people start to gather around my cube and ask if I’m okay. Is that by design? Dont oblige to apple users defect gestures, we got a perfectly fine right click for right clicking! Who needs a middle mouse button?

Closing tabs and that lille scroll wheel thingie. I use it a lot tbh. I need to change the registry every time I update preview, caus it somehow changes back when you update. Scroll is via two-finger swipe – not sure why you need the special scroll icon thing I just want W10 to stop resetting my touchpad settings every time I reboot It’s so stupid that users have to “fix” touchpad settings, default programs settings, etc.

The problem is that after certain time using chrome I have this problem a year later. How can this not have been fixed, it seems so major. One min. My computer also won;t go into sleep. I think they are related.

It’s a pity that they replaced “Maximize” gesture with “See all open windows”. Maximize is much more important. When I’m scrolling windows 10 often randomly shows all open windows, even though I’m only scrolling with two fingers, weird. Great stuff!!! I am very frustrated with Windows 10 on tablets. So cool..

Tried thoroughly checking the elan touchpad app (ver: ), there is no option to set this, there is just an check box to either enable/disable 3 finder tap. My screenshot below shows no settings. Touchpad gestures in Windows 10 can be customized. There are some preset actions you can select or you can set a gesture to run a keyboard shortcut. The keyboard shortcut option is useful if you want to open a Windows 10 app/feature that doesn’t appear in the presets, for example the Win + R keyboard shortcut that opens the run box.
