  11. Thank you!!!!!! 

  12. where can I download the synaptics pointing device? I have an asus notebook. 

  13. It's so hard that my Android tablet has better multi window functionality than Windows 8 🙂 

  14. I have this very irritating problem with my laptop (acer).
    The problem is, my touchpad scroll doesn't work at all
    I've tried on mouse settings,but there's no option with mouse scroll/wheel settings
    Some of the other tutorials show, how to switch the scroll/wheel setting on, but apparently I don't have it 🙁
    Can someone help or has a tip? Maybe I need to download a program or something?? 

  15. Thank you for the video.  I learned about 2 finger scroll.  My Toshiba laptop does not have the Synaptic driver.   I see on your screen a tapping setting.   I'd really like to disable the charms screen, edge swiping and tap to click.  This is becoming a constant annoyance for me.  It's just way too sensitive, there is no way to adjust it (that I have found) and from time to time that Charms bar opens locking and moving my pointer to the bar when I'm simply trying to navigate from right to left.  8.1 is doing too many unwelcome favors for me.   Can I change over to the Synaptic driver and use it to disable any of these "features"?

  16. Very helpful, thanks!

  17. Hey thanks for the vid! I have a quick question, does the swipe from left and slide from bottom right gesture only work if APPS are open? For example, lets say i have firefox, microsoft word and google chrome open, will those gestures work? Cause for me they are not, they only work if i have apps open such as skydrive, netflix, and other ones that are in the start menu. Help please!
