Windows 7: Right Click on Dell Laptop with Trackpad?

Right Click on Dell Laptop with Trackpad?

Is there any way to set the trackpad up so I can tap it once with two fingers for a right click?

I know of course a single tap with one finger is a left click.

Thanks

Hi jooleyen...

Can you post your Dell Laptop specs...ie What Model of Dell Laptop do you have and what Trackpad software hardware\Software does your Laptop have IE: Synaptic or Alps. Some of the Trackpad software for Dell has many features. This information would help us help you. Cheers,

Sure.
Dell Studio XPS 1647 is coming in the mail. I don't yet know what software it has but I will report back. I know it'll have Windows 7 Ultimate on it.

my synaptics lets me select tap zones, and there is right click as a choice.

Thanks Pusspa! I had some older crappy synaptics version. I guess I still can't get the two finger scrolling and right click (unless of course I'm missing something here), but tap zones are sweet themselves.

Thanks guys

Hi jooleyen...did u get your new Lapotp yet?

I love the new Synaptics version that are out. I going to be working on a new Dell Latitude this weekend (Thursday is a Holiday and I booked Friday off) that just came in for one of my users. I'll check out the version that this one came with and see if I can see anything.

Cheers,
