The multi gesture of my touchpad is not working anymore, it did work before, my laptop model is Acer Aspire One D257

When i try to reactivate the mouse properties on control panel it says that it isnt installed, the computer is suggesting to uninstall it but i am afraid that it might be a bad idea to uninstall. there is also a dialog box saying that the synaptics option is not activated. but i dont know how to activate it.

What is multi gesture


do you mean multi-touch? It means that the device (touchpad or touch screen) can sense multiple fingers simultaneously.
gestures are specific patterns that perform tasks (like 2 finger scroll, pinch to zoom).

I am quite sure your trackpad supports multi-touch. If they arent enabled you can change the settings.For windows, go to - control panel> mouse>device settings tab> settings. (this might slightly change depending on the driver you have.)

Multi gesturee touchpad wont work


First advice with windows is "try restarting the PC", though very common advice .. its like magic which works with many of the troubleshooting issues.
Second thing you can do is try installing the touchpad drivers (like synaptics in my case) and look for the latest one as old drivers don't support multi gestures.
Hope this helps you in resolving you problem.
Have a good day bye

What is the multi gesture option available on my acer aspire timeline 4820tg and how do i switch it on or off . plz help me regarding this. regards ankit


The 4820TG's multi-gesture touchpad executes two-finger scrolling, pinch-to-zoom and rotate functions very well.The touchpad is a huge improvement from previous Acer touchpads. The touchpad is large and very responsive. The single touchpad button is comfortable to use and gentle to press. Multi-touch gestures and scrolling works well while surfing the Internet. Nevertheless, it is highly recommended to lower the sensitivity for "PalmCheck" in the Synaptics software to enable usage of the keyboard and touchpad at the same time. Enable/Disable and other touchpad settings can be made using Mouse Properties (from contril panel) and Synaptics Tab.

GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

My touchpad works but not its multi gesture its emachines D730


most touchpad drivers will work on windows 7 but the program which control the functionality of the touchpad "Synaptics" or ALPS" pointing device may not be compatible in win7 this is an issue with most computer manufacturers but not their fault since win7 is a new operating system and possibly in the near future who knows when windows will come with a windows update to make touchpads work in windows having all it's functionality available.

try calling your computers maker and ask if they have work arounds for your touchpad some may have options to make all your touchpads functionality work but some may not try calling them and have them check it for you, they should know better since they are trained for the specifics of your system.^_^
