Windows 7: Right Click with Synapsis touchpad?

Right Click with Synapsis touchpad?

Is there a way to enable a key or something to right click using the touchpad, sorta like a mac? It could be a keyboard key, 2 fingers idc.

There are probably programs out there that can substitute a key such as Alt to perform right click functions, but I've never heard of them.

As far as the multi-touch functionality goes, unless your touchpad has multi-touch, there's no way to enable it. It's not entirely a software function, it also relies on hardware. This is why you can use multi-touch with some touchpads and not with others. It's also why a Macbook Pro's touchpad has more multi-touch features on the OS X side than on the Windows 7 side.

Solution for no right click on touchpad

Click on touchpad icon in Lower Right corner of desktop.
Click on Pointing Device Properties & mouse properties window opens.
Click Device settings.
Highlight the pointing device you're using and click on Settings.
Click the + sign next to buttons.
Click Right Button Action.
Select Secondary Click, Apply & OK

I've been trying to fix this for a while now. Not sure if this window is something new or not, as I don't recall seeing it before. Hope it helps.

Am not sure if this helps you, but:

to the right of the space bar and on the bottom row, you should see a key with what vaguely looks like a drop-down menu. Click that key.

In some situations, shift + f11 will act as a right-click.

How can I make “tapping the mousepad (touchpad) to work as a click”?
I have a HP Entertainment PC laptop. It's Windows 7 (upgraded from Windows Vista). When I tap on the touchpad, it won't work as a click. It's so annoying that I have to use the button below the touchpad to click. Help me, please. Thank you~
