Windows 10: Change Three Finger Flick Gesture Action

    Change Three Finger Flick Gesture Action


    I want to change the three finger action on my laptop touchpad. I have win 8.1 driver synaptics driver installed. The three finger gestures can't be changed, only enabled or disbaled. Now, the gestures do the forward and backward navigation on left/right three finger swipe and pageup and pagedown action on up/down swipe. I want to change the up/down or if possible left/right gestures to the new actions introduced in win 10.
    researched a bit online and I think that maybe they can be changed through registry edits.

    Secondly, I also want to change three finger press to Notification centre. I have a option to launch any program with this gesture so I want to know that if an executable shortcut can be created to windows notification centre (shortcut: Win+A).

    I found those registry locations:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    SOFTWARE
    Synaptics
    SynTPEnh
    But still dont know how to edit the 3FingerGestures

    Bump. I have a Dell XPS 9343 laptop with a precision touchpad driver. I hate the default option for three finger flicker; I don't want it to cycle through apps, I want it to act as forward and backward button (for firefox and alike).

    is there ANY way to change/mod this?

    Win10 offers an option to change three finger swipe... too bad you can only change it to "do nothing". Pathetic, really...

    I don't have my laptop right now but I remember finding a 3 Finger Gesture Key in registry which had many values, so maybe if we exchange those values we could both get what we want.
    I will not be able to access my laptop for like a month but you could search for GESTURE keyword in regedit (keep pressing F3 till you have found the correct one) and post it here. I will do the same in about a month.

    Cheers

    I googled the location of the key but since I can't confirm it, I'll leave it to you.
    Here's the location:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    SOFTWARE
    Synaptics
    SynTPEnh
    PlugInConfig
    Defaults
    3FingerGestures

    Well, that's for Synpatics driver, which my Dell doesn't have :< I have a precision driver.

    Well, In that case you can Google the problem and hope that someone has found a solution for it or maybe you can still find a registry hack yourself.
    In any case, good luck! (y)
