Windows 8 on a (non touch screen) Laptop

Filed under: Dell, Hardware, Windows 8 — solutionsthroughit @ 20:14

Have migrated to Windows 8 on the Dell M6600.  It’s running very nicely, with a SSD and 1TB HDD (storage and VM HDD’s).  Have found that the trackpad has gestures similar to those that you can use on a touchscreen.

I’m not a big fan of the sweep left, due to the way that I’ve been using the touchpad for years – I start in the corner, and sweep all the way across, which now switches from apps to applications, rather than moving the mouse pointer around!

I was going to hack into the registry to stop this from happening, but found that the touchpad software actually allows me to customise the settings (see below).  Happy!
