Re: Touchpad settings in Windows 8

Hello Elizabeth,

Welcome to the Sony Community.

 

First, download and install the Synaptics Pointing Device Driver Update from here: http://esupport.sony.com/CA/p/swu-download.pl?mdl=SVE151190S&upd_id=8208&os_group_id=24

 

Next, follow all the steps mentioned below to enable the scrolling feature of the touchpad:

Press Windows + C keys to open the Charms menu, type control panel in the search charms and press the Enter key to access it.

Click on Hardware and Sound > Mouse > Function Tab > Click to check the box next to Use Scroll Function > Click OK.

 

Regards,

Miguael
