    Disable touch gestures?

    Hi, I recently bought a convertible laptop-tablet. I noticed that there are some gestures implemented in W10. I want to disable one of the, when you swipe from the left in the screen and the task view comes up.

    Is that possible?

    Those are configurations for the touchpad, I'm talking about the screen.

    Just wanted to bump this thread. Unfortunately most people don't use Windows 10 on a tablet, and those who do probably have a hybrid and spend most time in laptop mode. That's why so few are annoyed by these stupid gestures, and information is scarce. I have a surface pro 4 and I use it as a tablet a lot, especially as a notebook taking notes in OneNote when I'm in class. I haven't had ONE single use for any of the gestures, but they are triggered a LOT and it really pisses me off. The main two are:

    1. When I'm erasing something with the pen and get close to the left edge it always triggers the task view. If I want the task view I can use the task view button in the taskbar! I think this gesture is beyond stupid.
    2. When I tap (either with ONE finger or with the pen) on an icon in the taskbar it triggers what I believe to be some kind of swipe from bottom gesture. This happens at least 1 out of 3 times. It shows you exactly what you get if you long press, or right click with a mouse/touchpad on the icon (Name, Pin to taskbar, close window). I have no idea why MS implemented this as a gesture when you instead can just long press.

    I think the responsible devs thought that these gestures would be time savers, but they are the complete opposite. Surely there must be some way of disabling them through the GPE?
