    New Touchpad Gesture - holding one finger pops up a 4 direction pad


    I really want to deactivate this touchpad gesture. I deactivated it before but since I updated my laptop it was reactivated. its when you hover your pointer from the touchpad interface for more than 1 second a four direction pad pops up to pretty much jump around the page you are at. The options of the four pad is Home, End, Forward, Backward. I cannot find this in the general touchpad settings in the computer and don't understand how to get rid of it because I cannot even describe the gesture to google. it is just an annoying gesture because I hover my pointer over something a lot and don't want to just end up hitting one of the directions and skip and page, or jump down the page, or go back a page, especially on pages that require re-loading on sensitive information. Can anyone understand what I am saying and relate? please I would like to hear more about this gesture.

    Welcome to TenForums @Lyel96

    Is yours a Samsung laptop? Is so, this is an OEM 'feature' apparently. See:
