Windows 8 gestures won’t work with Microsoft Touch Mouse

Page content
Today Microsoft release version 2.0 of their

Microsoft Mouse and Keyboard Center. I upgraded the Mouse and Keyboard center from v1.1 to v2.0, but I ran into a strange issue. Because of the non-working Windows 8 gestures with version 1.1 of the software I decided to disabled the two and three finger gestures.


After I upgraded the software to v2.0, the two and three finger gestures still didn’t work. Although the gestures were enabled.

Switching between Disable this gesture and enabling it again didn’t quiet work, so I dediced to remote v2.0 of the software and reinstall v1.1 (I’m glad I still had the ‘old’ version available).

When I checked the settings in v1.1 the gestures were disabled, I enabled them and removed the software again.


After I reinstalled v2.0 of the Mouse and Keyboard Center the Windows 8 gestures were completely working!


If you also have issues with the Windows 8 gestures when upgrading to v2.0? Reinstall v1.1 and check the settings, you probably disabled some of the gestures.

If you’re looking for the Microsoft Mouse & Keyboard Center v1.1, just click here for the 64-bit version, or here for the 32-bit version.
