Enable one-finger scroll on Precision M4800 (ALPS touchpad)

Hi!


I got my Precision M4800 and I'm really about it.


But! I dislike the touchpad for one reason : No option to enable one-finger scroll. I'm kinda "old school" with touchpad and I don't like using my the two-fingers scroll and all the "fancy " features and the touchpad software don't have this specific feature.

I tried the old driver version (7.0), but it's not compatible with Windows 8.1.

I can see a lot of values in the regedit ( HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Alps and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Alps ) but I don't know which one it can be,

Do you know if a generic ALPS drivers exist? Do you have a solution for this issue?

Thanks!

Run the DellTPad.exe file in C:\Program Files\DellTPad.  This will give you an older interface which includes the one-finger scroll.
