I have Synaptics Trackpad on which I can two-finger-tap to emulate a right-click. However it is not so convenient when one of my fingers is already touching the trackpad that I need to lift that finger and press it simultaneously with another finger in sync with the former.

I need to be able to trigger the two-finger-tap functionality by tapping my midfinger when my forefinger is touching (or by tapping my ring finger when my midfinger is touching), and how do I do it?

Registry hacks are welcome.

PS: I have seen this functionality in a few ELAN touchpads but this wasn't called something (that I can possible use to search the web) or there was no option to enable or disable this specific feature in two-finger taps.

EDIT: I finally found all the swipe features and their corresponding names at MultiSwipe (http://www.multiswipe.com) and unfortunately it's not opensourced! So, I'm asking about TIP TAPs - specifically about assigning tip tap right to right click

  • Which version of touchpad (+ laptop model) do you have? Which OS? Have you already updated to latest driver? – Máté Juhász Mar 24 '17 at 10:29
  • AFAIK, this feature is not present in any version of Synaptics on all versions of windows; It's not a bug, but I need it to work like ELAN. Btw, I'm using Synaptics v19.0.12.95 and my laptop model is HP G6 1068se – Saravanabalagi Ramachandran Mar 24 '17 at 10:59
  • found the name of that feature finally: TIP TAP...! – Saravanabalagi Ramachandran Mar 24 '17 at 11:36
