I have figured out a SOFT solution, by running a third party script to manipulate the windows hotkey/default behaviour. As those touchpad gestures are actually firing off some sort of hotKey combinations to trigger windows feature, eg, touchpad swipe down from edge = "restore windows size" = WinKey + KeyDown, touchpad swipe left from right edge = "Windows Action Center" = WinKey + A , etc, find a full list here: https://www.shortcutworld.com/en/win/Windows_10.html|
The 3rd party script I am referring is call AutoHotKey: https://autohotkey.com/ , however it doesn't run out of the box, you need some scripting skills to customise and override of the default windows hotKey behaviour.
Have a look at the tutorial section, it explains how to write a custom script. The only things annoying me re the hi12 touchpad gestures are:
- pinch and zoom: when I am browsing with two fingers scroll, sometime it triggers a pinch and zoom
- invert scrolling direction, I would like a Mac style of scrolling direction
I have done some simple scripting to address the above two annoyances and composed it as an executable (exe), and run it every time I start windows (by putting it in the startup folder), the script only takes 1.8MB of Ram size, it is quite light.
And the good thing is, IT WORKS.. I am now having two fingers inverted scrolling and the pinch and zoom feature are disabled (Overridden). And I believe you can do more with it, eg, getting rid of the restore windows size and action center gestures.
Believe it or not, you can go ahead and give it a try.
I know it is no a fundamental solution by getting the correct driver, but at least it eliminates your frustrations while using the touchpad keyboard.
