Windows 10: enable right click with two fingers tap on Synaptics touchpad

After upgrading to Windows 10, the touchpad of my Lenovo G50–45 has lost a feature in my opinion very useful: the right click with the two-fingers tap.

In the new settings interface of the Synaptics driver, there is no option to enable this feature. However, is still possible enable this from the system registry:

  1. Open Registry Editor (Windows + R, type regedit and hit Enter)
  2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Synaptics\SynTP\TouchPadPS2TM28xx
  3. Change the value of 2FingerTapAction to 2

That’s all!

  1. Following this exact same process, I find that I only have two files under

    Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Synaptics\SynTP\TouchPadSMB2cTM3270-1

    And neither are the 2FingerTapAction. Is it possible that I need to download different driver software in order to have the option for the 2FingerTapAction? I have a late 2017 Model HP Spectre x360 with the 19.3.31.31 version mice driver. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
