touch pad multi gesture support

can microsoft implement native multi gesture support for touch pad for windows 8, it like a small touch screen isn't it? as of now it works randomly with some application and not other eg zune, windows explorer doesn't work etc. the feature is so useful it's supprising that microsoft still haven't include it in their os.

Ummm...you are a bit behind the times it seems. Windows 7 already has full Multi-touch support. You just need devices that are multi-touch aware/supportive. And applications also need to implement support themselves to get the full benefit.

what i mean is that it becomes part of the os and not third party support. a requirement for manufacturers and developers. they set standards for wm7 why not desktop? i want to navigate with a touchpad like a touchscreen. a well implemented touchpad is more efficient than a touch screen i reckon.
apple is leading the pack on this. their multi gesture is brilliant. other than that the machine is overprice and too restrictive for me

The support is already there. But its pointless if the touch pad is not able to handle or support multi-touch.
Windows 7 has support for touch and multi-touch. Its there in the OS. What you are asking for is already there.

windows itself doesn't offer multi gesture. i have a dell laptop and have to installed synaptic sofware for it to work. dell comes with their own interpretation of how it should work too. i didn't like it so i used synaptic instead. microsoft should set out to manufacturers and developers how it should work in their os instead of letting someone else decide something thas so important.

And you think that actually works? Microsoft tries to get developers to use those things built into Windows all the time. A lot of good it ever does.

they did it with windows mobile 7. the damn thing is brilliant, just missing features that an average user never need
just hoping windows 8 includes native multi gesture support. let microsoft define how it should work

Windows 7 already has native Multi-touch (and gesture) support. Its already there.
Can not add whats already there. Computers are not the same thing as phones.

Touchpad Driver that Unlocks Multi-Touch on older Touch
Haven't updated your laptop's trackpad driver lately? Then you may well want to consider doing so, at least if your laptop is equipped with a Synaptics trackpad. As a user on the Hardware Zone forums discovered, the latest Synaptics driver seems to enable multitouch gestures on older laptops...

Does Windows7 support two screen multi touch?
Hi, I have two Acer 23 inch multi touch screens, being driven through a Matrox DualHead2Go. So the ATI graphics card thinks it is driving a single 2050 x 1080 monitor, the DualHead2Go then splits this across the two screens. Will Windows 7 support multi touch across two screens? Thanks.
