Surface Pro 1 - works like it should

I was looking everywhere for a way to reverse the scroll direction on my first gen Surface Pro with Type Cover and this app worked like a charm. I am using Windows 10 and this app installed quickly and all I had to do was hit the toggle for flip the scroll direction. Thank you!

Surface Trackpad App

Version Only gave this a 1 star. Would really put about a dozen minuses in front of it. Talk about worthless!!!!! Using Surface Pro 2 w/ Win 8.1. Did the permissions thing, told that the app was installed and functional but got the error message that the Trackpad was unable to be configured. Did the suggestions...nothing. Read the reviews about Win 8.1 having the capability to shut this stupid thing off...wondering what Win 8.1 they're using. The only thing I have available is to change the primary mouse buttons and the number of scroll lines. I've been exposed to touchpads for over 15 years and have hated them for all that time. I have a cheap ol' Samsung laptop and even they provided a way to shut that pad off. C'mon Microsoft...ya' got any code writers that have the consumer of their products in mind? Either fix it or quit writing apps. I see we're given 1000 characters for these reviews. That's not enough to cover all the names I've called this thing.

Works, Sort of

This app does not work as well as I hoped. Changing the settings does turn the trackpad off. However, after short time it will be on again, even though it is still set to off.

No Support for Surface Pro 3 TypeCover - HELP!

I leverage the Surface Bluetooth mouse and need something to disable the touch-pad when an external mouse is connected. I've never mastered the touchpad, so at this point its primary function is to frustrate me by making my cursor jump when I'm trying to type. Please, please, PLEASE update this app to support the new TypeCovers or include more robust touchpad settings support in Windows. I'm honestly considering placing some kind of sticky film over the touchpad to avoid all these random cursor jumps.

Incompatible with MS Surface 2 Pro (April 2014)

I have the more traditional keyboard (i.e. "Type Cover") and this application does NOT disable the touchpad. To be editing an Excel document only to find the cursor has moved to an unintended cell --- infuriating!! It's hard to take this device serious as a tablet until this gets fixed. So close, so very close to a sweet solution.....

Will not recognize it on my Surface Pro 2.

I got really excited when I saw this app since the track pad settings are horrible in the surface keyboard. I can't double tap to highlight or easily scroll so I thought this app would fix all of that, but the app will not recognize it. My keyboard is the backlit one so it is the newer version. On the Microsoft forums this is an issue since the original surface came out and its really disappointing that I can't manage the track pad with a simple app like this one. Hopefully there is another app. I still LOVE my surface!

Doesn't recognize type cover 2

I've tried the trouble shooting steps and it still isn't recognizing my type cover 2.

Great App but needs update for Ver. 2 covers

I really love the simplicity of this app for a way to disable the track pad on my 1st gen Type Cover. My only complaint is that after buying the 2nd gen Type Cover with backlighting, the app doesn't recognize there being any keyboard. I'm sure this will be fixed with a future update, though.

Perfect for surface pro

I was having issues accidently touching the track pad and having it move the cursor while I am typing. I found this app and it works perfectly to disable the track pad. I like how it has options to disable it as a whole or just disable certain functions of the track pad. I have it so the tap gestures are disabled but all the other functions are still working. It's exactly what I was looking for.
