With the release of Windows 10, devices that come with a touchpad can now be used to control various aspects of the operating system. One of the new features that has been added to Windows 10 is support for touchpad gestures. This means that you can now use your touchpad to control various aspects of the operating system, such as moving the cursor, scrolling through documents, and more.

Adds support for new touchpad gestures
Expand is a versatile application that enables users to easily expand and contract text, images and files.
Recently, we added support for new touchpad gestures. These allow you to perform common tasks, like zooming in and out, more quickly and easily.
Here’s a brief guide on how to use the new gestures:
Zoom In: To zoom in, use two fingers to spread your fingers apart. Then, drag one finger vertically up the screen.
Zoom Out: To zoom out, use two fingers to spread your fingers apart. Then, drag one finger horizontally away from you.
Pan: To pan, use two fingers to spread your fingers out. Drag one finger horizontally or vertically to move the image around.
Crop: To crop an image, use two fingers to spread your fingers out. Drag one finger vertically or horizontally to adjust the cropping area.
And that’s all there is to it!
We hope you find these new gestures helpful. Please let us know if you have any questions or feedback.
Improved support for existing gestures
With the new expanded support for touchpad gestures, you can now do things like zoom in/out, scroll up/down, and rotate pictures in your photo library using only your fingertips. Plus, we’ve improved the way existing gestures work so that they’re even more convenient and responsive. So now, you can easily move your cursor around the screen, flip through your open documents, and more with just a few simple gestures.
If you’re an Advanced User, you can also learn how to create your own gestures using the Gesture Editor. This will give you even more control over how you use your touchpad and make it even more convenient and personal for you. So whether you’re a longtime touchpad user looking to improve your experience, or you’re just getting started with touchpad gestures, we hope that this update will help you get the most out of your device.
Easier and more intuitive gestures
If you’re using a laptop with a touchpad, you can use gestures to control your computer more easily. A gesture is just a quick movement you make with your finger, so it’s easy to do things like click a link, open a document, or even change the volume.
You can zoom in and out by pinching with two fingers, or rotate a picture by spinning with a finger and thumb. You can also move the cursor by swiping with two fingers, or by drawing a path with three fingers.
There are a lot of gestures to learn, but they’re all pretty easy to do. Just be patient, and you’ll soon be controlling your computer with ease.
More natural and responsive touchpad feel
We’ve been hard at work on expanding the update support for the touchpad so that it feels even more natural and responsive. We’ve also made some other improvements to the touchpad so that it’s more accurate and responsive.
Better touchpad performance overall
Expand is a new touchpad gesture SDK that expands on the current gesture support in Windows 10. With Expand, you can finally use all of the gestures that you’re used to on your phone and tablet.
For example, you can now use the two-finger swipe to scroll up and down in a document, or use three fingers to draw a circle to open a context menu. And don’t forget about the new four-finger drag gesture to move files around.
We hope that you’ll find Expand to be an amazing addition to your touchpad experience. Let us know what you think in the comments below, or on our forums.
With the release of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, Microsoft has added support for touchpad gestures. This update allows users to control some of their Windows 10 activities with gestures, such as zooming in or out on a document, changing songs on their music player, or opening a new task in their to-do list. Gestures can be used in addition to traditional mouse and keyboard input, which can be helpful for people who have limited hand mobility.
