Right now, it only works the right and left click, and the scroll at the right part of the touchpad. Windows 7 detects it as a mouse with scroll wheel. I tried the latest Synaptics drivers and some other Synaptics drivers. But advanced and multitouch options don't appear anywhere. This is a generic Chinese ultrabook.

Is it because it is not a Synaptics touchpad?

This is the Everest report with the Synaptics driver:

First access your mouse properties. In Windows 7 right click the desktop>properties>change mouse pointers and then look for something like this:


If you can't find it the touch pad may not support it. Try looking for software for your touch pad.

Thanks but unfortunately there isn't that option. Maybe I need another software for the touchpad, but I don't know where to look for it! :( – chelder Apr 28 '13 at 18:05
Try the manufacturer's website. – Matthew Apr 29 '13 at 18:32
