    O ok. I usually have Firefox open, would that be considered a modern app?

    Anyway I tested with Firefox and Store open - no luck. It is still grayed out in the mouse and touchpad settings

    Ah, you failed to mention that the settings in OPTION TWO were grayed out. That changes everything.

    Use step 2 in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below to enable app switching to see if that was the issue.
