3 Finger Gestures. Latitude E5530

I have another Windows laptop (Acer) where one of the touchpad gestures is using 3 fingers and sliding right to left or left to right, to bring up the same screen you can see by using ALT+TAB, i.e. showing all the applications you have running so you can pick the one you want to switch to.

I just updated the touchpad driver on this machine (Latitude E5530) and when I slide 3 fingers horizontally, I get the same display, i.e. all the applications I have open. However, it doesn't allow me to keep my fingers down and go back and forth and pick one. It just goes to the next one and selects it, then disappears.

It's not even an option in the driver window (the option there is Quick Launch with the default being Cortana) so I'm surprised it has this behavior at all. Does anyone know how to make it behave like the ALT+TAB application function?

Thanks in advance

Chris

It appears to be unique to certain laptop makes and certain touchpad makes. The following links should give you more information.

Thanks. Looks like the people for whom this solution worked had Synaptics touchpads, yes?
