Windows 10 Touchpad Gestures

If you are running Windows 10 on a laptop or tablet with a precision touchpad equipped you will need to remember these new and cool gestures because they are going to be very handy and useful.

1-Finger gestures

Well, let’s start with the basic ones:

Select an item – tap on the touchpad with one finger.

Launch or mouse double-click – double-tap on the touchpad with one finger.

Drag a Window – tap the title bar of a window and drag it.

2-Finger gestures

This is getting fun.

Scroll – place two fingers on the touchpad and slide horizontally or vertically.

Zoom in or out – place two fingers on the touchpad and pinch in or stretch out.

Right-click – tap the touchpad with two fingers

3-Finger Gestures

This is getting more and more interesting.

Invoke Cortana – tap the touchpad with three fingers.

Taskview – place three fingers on the touchpad and slide up or down.

Switch between apps – place three fingers on the touchpad and slide left or right.

Show desktop – place three fingers on the touchpad and swipe them towards yourself.

Show all open Windows – put three fingers on the touchpad and swipe them away from you.

You can change this behavior by going to Settings → Devices → Touchpad and selecting the Taps or Swipes drop-down menu under Three finger gestures section.

What’s required?

You will need a precision touchpad connected to your laptop to take advantage of these amazing multi-finger gestures. To check if your PC has one of these touchpads installed, go to Settings → Devices → Touchpad, and look for the message, “your PC has a precision touchpad,” or the options that let you choose what type of delay you want to use with the touchpad.

Enjoy and happy tapping.
