Multi finger gesture not working

My laptop is hp 15-r014TX.
Recently my touchpad multi finger gesture has stopped working. I can not scroll using 2-finger scroll, right click, rotation, zoom in and out. However, one-finger gestures are all working fine like I can swap between apps by left swipe, options appear by right swipe. I tried changing the settings, but of no use.

Hello @Pragya_Mathur ,
Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have read your thread on your HP 15-r014tx Notebook and the finger gestures not working correctly. Here is a document on how to troubleshoot the finger gestures on a Touchpad.
If you will go to the section on common TouchPad gestures, TouchPad and ClickPad configuration options are located on the TouchPad properties page. It shows you the Clickpad properties page. You can select the options.  This only works on programs that have this capability, such as a photo browser or word processor.
Hope this fixes your issue with finger gestures.

  • Windows 8.1 two finger gestures not working

    After I updated to windows 8.1 from  windows 8 yesterday, none of my two finger gestures are working. (e.g. two finger scroll, two finger click, or zoom) I tried updating my Synaptics driver and nothing has changed. I still can not use any of my two finger gestures. One finger scrolling is working properly but the two finger gestures are my favorite. All my gestures worked fine until I updated to windows 8.1...
    Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this? 
    Please help!

    Hello HelpMe0,
    Welcome to the HP Forums!
    I understand two-finger prompts are not working since upgrading to Windows 8.1. I will do my best to help, but first, I require the computer's model number. If you require assistance locating this information, please reference this website: Guide to finding your product number

  • Finger gesture not working on ipad

    Ever since the iOS 8 update and the latest updates there after, figure gestures on my iPad are simply not working. To get then to work you need to drag down from the top of the screen to see notifications and then it works. have spoken to apple and they suggested it was an app but it does it on everything. Come on apple sort this out its very frustrating. Has anyone had this and have a solution ?

    Define "finger gestures". The iPad is a touch screen device so that's a pretty broad category. If you are talking about multi tasking gestures, like pinching to the home screen, or using a four finger swipe, I have found it to be flakey since the iOS 8 update as well. If it quits working on me, I go into the Settings>General>Mulitasking Gestures and turn it off, then on again. That's not a fix, but it usually holds for a few weeks before I uave to do it again.

  • Multi touch gestures not working in mountain lion?

    Any one else having problems with their multi gesture trackpad not working when you wake your notebook from sleeping with Mountain Lion? If I restart it fixes it but once it falls asleep it stops working again.

    I've been having the same problem.  When my MBP would wake from sleep any touch gestures that used more than two fingers would not work.  I also had the issue where the MBP would forget the wireless network when it woke from sleep.  I found this answer on another thread and it worked on both issues for me.

  • Three finger gestures not working on Mountain Lion

    Since upgrade to Mountain Lion, gestures have become unreliable. Gestures for Mission Control, switching between full screen app, etc. (which are set with three fingre swipes) work sometimes but won't work most of the time. Anyone else facing the same problem?

    I had this problem but I found it was the settings that changed when mountain lion was installed.
    Mountain lion changed my three finger gestures to four finger gestures when swiping between full screen apps.
    I found there were extra settings. Apparently when installing mountain lion my three finger gestures were changed to four finger gestures.

  • Multi gestures not working on iPad Air ios8 onwards

    Multi gestures not working on iPad Air ios8 onwards. Turning gestures off then on works briefly. It's annoying. Is the Air bust? In for rep-air?

    ITs it's almost like they don't care

  • 3 finger swipe not working

    i don't know when it stopped, i have installed snow leopard, can't be sure it was since then, but my 3 finger swipe has stopped working in any program. don't use firefox. just updated safari, snow leopard, nothing unusual installed recently.
    any ideas? know issue? i've seen a few posts, but they mostly relate to firefox.

    After I installed the recent security update for Mac OS X v10.6.2 Snow Leopard on my MacBook Pro, I noticed this problem just today. The problem affects all multi-touch gestures, including but not limited to the following:
    Gestures Not Working
    3 finger swipe
    4 finger swipe (switching applications, show deskop, and expose')
    Rotate & Pinch
    Gestures Working for now
    Secondary click (on bottom-right of trackpad)
    2 finger right-click
    2 finger scrolling
    Tap to click
    Dragging (without enabling "tap to click")
    I've had my MacBook Pro since December 2009 when I bought it at a Best Buy, and I have a Best Buy warranty so if it is hardware-related, then I can just drop it off at a local Best Buy and let a Geek Squad Agent deal with it.
    If you want to send your complaints to Apple about this issue, send an email using this link ([email protected]). According to, the public release of Mac OS X v10.6.3 Snow Leopard is expected to be released in 6 weeks from now with more support for certain technologies, applications, and more stability to target crashes, bugs, etc.

  • Multi-touch gestures stop working?

    Apple, there is an annoying bug in Mountain Lion that needs to be fixed.  Sometimes when we wake our computers from sleep, multi-touch gestures stop working.  The problem is related to the Dock.  Restarting the dock by typing "killall Dock" into Terminal and hitting return provides a temporary resolution, but the problem will eventually return.  There are several other posts in this forum and others.  Seems like there should be an easy fix to what is the only complaint I currently have with your new operating system.

    Nice bit of trouble-shooting. Thanks for sharing the final solution.

  • The multi-tabs is not working all the time. Windows7 Firefox 4.0.1 I have the correct opetions set for multi-tabs.

    The multi-tabs is not working. I have the correct options set for multi-tabs. But when I open Firefox and try to add a site from Bookmarks it uses the same tab that is opened.

    Right click a tab and you will get the option to bookmark all tabs. Or use keyboard '''Alt + B''' which opens the old style menu. You can make changes to Firefox, as explained in this post: [/questions/799856#answer-155765]

  • Windows 8.1 pro 64 bit - finger print not working (sony viao 15126pab) hi i am using sony svs 15126pab  2 days before firefox hanged so i forcefully shutdown the system , after rebooting fingerprint not workingthen i go to device manager i found biometrics working properly , 2, 3 times restarted then also finger print not working, then i checked the authentic true suite " its giving error message box and closing every times then i uninstall authentic true suite and installed again ,it asked registration and i  registered but i didn't see the finger enrolling options in the software . i enabled biometrics options  in administrative templates (components) , other options also enabled in services restarted , reinstalled from Sony Store  - nothing helps..................... please help me ,,, i cant enable the add option of fingerprint in sign in options in settings.. the add option is like deactivated , no biometrics tool in control panel, no fingerprint enrolling option in authentic true suite . i purchased the system with windows 8 pro then upgraded to 8.1 now its reserved to windows 10 . so pls give me some solutions to rectify this problem 

    I cant access any printers, not even the virtual printers.
    What I would do is use ProcMon to find out why that Event entry was written.  Then I imagine I would get a clue about a .dll which might be involved, which hopefully might be registerable.  Since IE9 there have been new .dll  involving printing
    which have not been reflected in any of our repair tools.  However, instead of modifying our old scripts to reflect this fact, I have been advocating, so far unsuccessfully, that Microsoft create a proper IE Repair tool, one which does not rely on such
    unreliable techniques.   E.g. a better method of repairing would be to have it done by a proper troubleshooter (an .msdt file) but so far it seems nothing has been done in that way for these symptoms (again, assuming the cause is registry corruption
    and not simple interference from now incompatible third-party programming--the fix for that would be to identify and remove the incompatibilities.)   For example.

  • Finger sensor not working and some time iphone 6 screen also hang/pause  for few seconds

    In my iphone6 finger sensor not working and some time iphone 6 screen also hang/pause  for few seconds.

    Try cleaning the sensor, remove all fingerprints from the settings, and the start over in recognizing prints. There are a number of things that make prints hard to read, sweat, lotion, dirty hands, etc.

  • 3 finger backswipe not working on safari

    Well besides the 3 finger backswipe not working very well, and tempermental at best. Safari has also not been able to load certain pages (my firefox does just fine) , it has also been suuuuperr slowwwww. And just in general not working well at all. In other words it's been crappy.
    So, uh, whats up with Safari.
    I already did a permissions repair, and a 'Safari Reset' (multiple times), finishing always with a clean restart of the machine.
    I do have snow leopard still, as my os (10.6.8). I have a macbook pro, 7.1
    So hey everybody whats up with Safari, anyone know how to fix this?
    Do I need to uninstall Safari and reload it? Is that possible?
    Please only answer if you really know what is going on with safari, thanks

    Yeah, I get no replies from any of the techs here. Everyone has usually always been friendly and cordial and helpful here. But , only silence regarding this issue.
    I may have thrown some people off when I stated in my original question, "Please only answer if you really know what is going on with safari, thanks ""
    Well the reason I said that is , sometimes I get people who say things like, "Do a permission repair" or, "Check your Prefrences for Trackpad."
    ,,,,,,Already did all that. Did that before I ever got on this forum, that stuff is like real basic protocols for me.
    I want to know what the heck is really going on,,,,,,just like you.
    Anyone else have a real clue?
    thanks, all 

  • After "upgrading" from trial to FCPX 10.0.3 multi cam does not work

    After "upgrading" from trial to FCPX 10.0.3, multi cam does not work anymore. Everything was fine in the trial version, but now the multicam clip I made in trail is shown, but not with the 4 windows, only the first angle can be seen. And I can not find (import) the cuts I made in the trail. The settings are the same in both versions. Am I missing something? Is it possible that I have to start from scratch and all work is lost?
    When I double click the multi cam clip I see all four angles in the timeline, one underneath the other... 
    Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

    There is an excellent podcast tutorial series called "Creative COW Final Cut Help Tutorials Podcast (SD)"
    in the iTunes Store.
    The latest three are video podcasts and go into great depth concerning the new Multicam in 10.0.3
    Can't recommend them enough.

  • Multi-touch trackpad gestures not working (Macbook pro 15" unibody)

    I have a 5 day old Macbook Pro and since yesterday ive been having an intermittent fault with the 3 and 4 finger gestures on the track pad. They stop working and don't even work on restart. the computer needs to be shutdown then turned on again for it to work. When it wasn't working, i created a new user account and switched to that and it worked fine, when i switched back to my account it carried on working fine as well. I do have parallels installed with windows xp but use that rarely and the problem hasn't occurred when i have that on (only reason i mention is is that i noticed the fault a few hours after installing parallels). One of the times the problem occurred is when the computer came out of standby.
    Is this a software issue or hardware issue? Does apple know about it and are they making a fix?

    That's really bizarre! I've been experiencing the same problems. Today my three/four finger multitouch gestures stopped working altogether! Nothing seemed to resolve the problem (restart, shut down, etc).I did however follow your advice of creating a new user account and logging in to see if multitouch works...low and behold, it worked! I then logged off and signed back into my primary user account and multitouch continued to work! This must be a software issue (I'm guessing). I just deleted the temporary user account and everything seems to be working fine. I set up a Genius Bar appointment for tomorrow - I'll see if they have any further suggestions.
