How To Customize Your Laptop’s Touchpad Gestures

Customize Laptop’s Touchpad Gestures

The mouse has been an essential replacement for the laptop’s Touchpad as many users interface tool of choice. It is because a mouse has been so much easier to use and far more precise than Touchpad. However, one of the most important qualities of a laptop’s touchpad: gestures. With an easy swipe of your fingers, you can easily switch between apps, adjust audio and just do anything else the user wants to do.

Here, you can easily learn about how to customize Windows 10 Touchscreen Gestures:

First, you need to find out that if your windows laptop has Precision Touchpad or not. Although, all the modern windows laptops already come included with a precision touchpad, some of them still use older touchpad that basically requires their own particular drivers. You can easily tell if your laptop has a precision touchpad or not by simply heading to settings, then select devices and then click on Touchpad. If it says that “Your PC has a precision touchpad” then your PC has a Precision Touchpad.

Built-in Settings for Precision Touchpad


If you know that your PC is included with a precision touchpad then you can easily scroll down in this menu to customize cursor speed and sensitivity. But what we really need to look for is the multi touch gestures. You can simply adjust pinch to zoom, two finger scrolling and the addition of three and four finger taps and swipes. But the options are a bit limited in this section, allowing you to switch desktops, switch apps, or adjust audio and swipes. Along with this, the users can also use multi finger taps which can easily bring up the action center with play and pause audio. The Custom Touchpad Gestures Windows 10 is very useful but still can be much better.

Gesture Configuration


If you further scroll down to the end of this page and then select “Advanced Gesture Configuration” then you can easily customize things to a great context. With the help of the selected option, you can configure each swipe to a particular function. This includes some of those gestures that aren’t available from the more basic view such as going forward and back in your browser along with snapping of windows to the edge of the screen. Rather, you can scroll down to the option of “Custom Shortcut” and record keystrokes which helps you in assigning Custom Touchpad Gestures Windows 10.

If you are one of those gesture maniac’s then the built in Windows settings may not be enough. So it is recommended that you must check “MultiSwipe”, which is a 5$ program that helps you in creating your own two, three, four and even five fingered gestures for performing over 90 different actions. This program also helps in customizing multi finger Windows 10 Touchscreen Gestures, only if your laptop has one. Unlike Windows 10’s settings, this program works with Elan, Synaptics, and Precision drivers. The users can first observe this program, with the help of 15 days of a free trial. Right click on its system tray icon and then choose the properties to make Custom Touchpad Gestures Windows 10.

You can specify your own keyboard shortcut or just simply pick and drop from the drop down lists. The gestures that are present in MultiSwipe are more in number as compared to that of Windows, which includes rotating, pinching, and tip taps. If certain gestures are not triggering properly then you can go to the settings tab and then manage the sensitivity of your touchpad.

Every touchpad is different in its own way, so you may have to try something creative to make things working. This program is very important for the gesture maniac’s and is worth the price of 5$.
