    Two Finger Middle Tap Click with latest Synaptics Drivers

    Middle Tap Click with the latest Synaptics Touchpad drivers for Windows 7 x32 / x64.

    By default there is no middle click tap option. I was able to successfully get the two finger middle tap click working by simply going into the Windows 7 registry (start | regedit) and then navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Synaptics\SynTP\Defaults and right click to add a DWORD (32-bit) Value with the name “2FingerTapAction” (without quotes) and a value of 4.

    Verified working on a Dell Inspiron N4010 with Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

    It only takes seconds and proves very useful when using Firefox for example to two finger tap a link (middle click) to open links in a new tab.

    I hope this helps someone out there trying to get two finger tap middle click working with the latest Synaptics Touchpad drivers for Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit.

    Latest drivers available here:
    synaptics.com/resources/drivers

    Enjoy!

    Not sure if this is part of the issue u had maybe ?
    My laptop has 2-3 generation of it and all three use 3 different drivers.
    Instead of Synaptics i had to ETDWare from ELAN

    Works nicely =) as smooth as on my mac but with out the Rubber band bounce that apple trying to patent LOL
