    Is there a way to edit the button mapping area of a touchpad?


    In Ubuntu there is a pretty direct way to edit the characteristics of a touchpad. Problem is that I'm running Windows 10 anniversary and I just picked up an MSI GS-60 002 Ghost Pro Skylake and I simply can't get used to using the offset position of the touchpad... I continuously hit right button when I'm intending left.

    I'm sporting an Elantech Smart Pad. Driver version _x64_WHQL

    Anyway, my hope is that it is possible. Instead of a right 50% left 50% I'm hoping to alter for left 75% right 25%... I realize the exact spacing is a coordinate issue but if anyone could offer me a direction to explore I would be sincerely grateful.

    Seriously? Well, shit...

    Thanks for locating that, I'm curious if it's at all pad dependent? An acquaintance was able to modify his arrangement using Linux but I'm uncertain as to the make/model he was using.
