I've got a Lenovo y580 with both windows 7 and windows 8 installed. When I first installed Windows 8, the three finger flick to go back or forward a page in an internet or file browser worked fine. But now, when I three finger flick backwards, instead of going to the last page I was at, it goes to the very first page I accessed (like continually going back in my history until I cannot go back any further.) The same happens with forward click.

The flick works fine in my Windows 7 installation which makes me wonder if this a registry setting somewhere that got messed up?

There is no setting to control exactly what a three-finger flick does in the Synaptics driver that I can find. Any ideas how to fix this?

Have you installed any additional drivers (like for a mouse, for instance)? –  pratnala Feb 5 '13 at 4:34
    
Not explicitly... I have the plug and play drivers for a logitech wireless mouse installed on both OSes though –  mknutso2 Feb 5 '13 at 4:46
    
Are they the drivers automatically installed by Windows? –  pratnala Feb 5 '13 at 4:49
    
Yep, installed automatically when you connect the wireless stick –  mknutso2 Feb 5 '13 at 4:54
    
I ended up fixing the problem by reinstalling the trackpad driver if anyone else has this problem. –  mknutso2 Feb 19 '13 at 23:38
