Two Finger TAP Right-Click on Synaptic Touchpad

When I recently picked up my Yoga 2 Pro, I realized that everything was running smoothly and quietly until I had to right click and a loud audible clicking sound jarred me from my tranquil browsing experience. Without putting thought into how petty this issue may be, I started to seek out the option for right-click two finger tap in the Synaptics settings panel. Unfortunately it was not there, but with some digging, I found it deep in the registry…


As always, make sure you backup your registry and tread lightly in this area. We are just going to edit one value. This is VERY simple. Do not be intimidated.

  1. Press  Windows Button + R, type “regedit”, and then click OK.
  2. Navigate to the following registry subkey:
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Synaptics > SynTP > TouchPadPS2
  3. Locate “2FingerTapAction” and double click it.
  4. Change the Value data: to “2”.
  5. Click OK. Exit Registry Editor.
  6. Restart your machine or log-out and back in.

You should should not be able to two finger right-click tap!
