Windows 7: Help with Chrome

Help with Chrome

I have two questions. First I have a laptop and the mouse pad on it allows me to go forward and back and also move pages horizontally but with chrome neither of these features work. Does anyone know if there is a way to get them to work. It is an HP Pavilion laptop. Second, I was using Firefox before and had an add-on called Foxtabs that I really liked. Is there any such add-on for Chrome? Thanks

Hi lsufrontier,

I'm not sure why your touchpad wouldn't be working, but there is a Chrome extension that has a similar function to FoxTabs - it's called TabsPreview: Around The Web: 3D Tab Preview on Google Chrome (extensions)

If your Chrome version is is earlier than 0.3.154.6, you should update your version to the latest build.
Also get the latest update for your ALPS driver.

Go to the HP support site. Let it autodetect your computer model. Then locate your Alps drivers in the offered downloads.

Hi lsufrontier,

Sorry you're still not having luck with Chrome. Did you try out TabsPreview to solve your other issue?
