Description

Touch and Type Covers for Surface have a trackpad built-in that functions like a mouse. Trackpad Settings lets you control functions such as tap and touch gestures on your Surface. If this app doesn’t detect the keyboard, do the following: 1. Make sure you have the latest updates: From the Start screen, type Update, tap Settings, then tap Check for updates. 2. From the Start screen, type Devices, tap Settings, then tap Devices and Printers. Then tap Refresh three times (circular arrow next to Search box). Try using the app again.

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 Touch Cover2 / Type Cover 2 support

This app doesn't detect Touch/Type Cover 2. This isn't an issue for Surface 2 owners, but Surface RT owners have no Windows 8/8.1 support for these covers in "System Settings." Microsoft, if you want to sell these covers, you might want to support the millions of Surface tablets already in the wild instead of just the new models.

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 3.0.85.0. 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.

- This fixed my TrackPad Issues -

Four months ago I bought a used Surface Type on eBay that the guy sold because the track pad quit working.. It was a deal and I did find that only the pad's buttons where working. Just now I download this app and turn on track pad function and "HazzaH" - Track pad is fully functional.. 'Yay'

Please Add...

Great start for a much-needed tool. However, I'd love an option that would allow me to automatically turn off the trackpad when a mouse is in use (USB or Bluetooth).
