    Another help question, and hopefully the last.


    When using the mouse pad on my laptop, if I swipe it from the far right it brings up several link or whatever on the right of my screen, I'd rather it not do that. Is there a way to disable that?

    Right Edge-Swipe - It is a feature of your laptop's touch pad Gesture Suite - see:
    Synaptics Gesture Suite

    I can't be certain - I do not have the feature - but I think you change the behaviour from the control panel, like you did with the pinch zoom in one of your earlier questions.

    Hmmm.... I went back and looked through the menu I used to fix the pinch zoom issue, but didn't see anything that looked like it would help. Thank you for the suggestion, though.
