Two fingers usage on Windows trackpads
Posted on 2011-04-21
I just got an HP Envy laptop. I use to have an HP laptop and the trackpads on windows machines have always been some what useless. The technology hasn't changed. I'm used to my Macbook Pro trackpad where everything of course works.
On the MBP, you can use two fingers with no problem. One to track and one to click. Scrolling is flawless. On the HP trackpad, I can't do that. I have to use one finger. If I try to use two like on the MBP, tracking more or less stops as the trackpad has no idea what is going on and basically ceases up. I called HP and they said you can't use two fingers. I asked about scrolling as well, which sometimes engages and mostly doesn't. They said you have to play around with it.
Anyone using a Windows (7) laptop with a trackpad know of some way to enable two finger usage like on a MBP? Guess I find it difficult to believe Windows trackpads are still this bad.
