    A touchpad is not the same thing as a touch screen. Your touch pad may not support gestures, it may just emulate a mouse.

    Yes but the thing is, some touchpads just emulate a mouse. Not all touchpads can do Gestures. Some can only handle one touch point, as in one finger at a time. If yours can do gestures and isn't then you need to install the correct driver/software from Dell.

    I don't know, the manual for your laptop might tell you. If you have the correct drivers and software installed and gestures still don't work its likely it doesn't support them.
