I bought a new laptop with Windows 10 and am having issues with the Synaptic touch pad.
By default, two-finger swiping on the touchpad scrolled like a Mac (i.e. the scroll bars move against the direction your fingers move in). That's the opposite of what I like, so I went into the Synaptics ClickPad Settings (via the icon in the tray), and into the Two-Finger Scrolling properties (the properties button "conveniently" doesn't appear until you focus the row), and unticked the "Enable reverse scrolling direction" option.
This worked, except for two problems:
- Whenever I restart, the setting reverts. It's not being saved properly.
- In the start menu, and other metro-windows-8-tablet-tile-thingy-style places, it still scrolls in the wrong direction! (But things in desktop-land are fine.)
Any suggestions? Registry keys to tweak? Updates to install?
The machine in question is an HP Spectre x360, if that happens to matter.
