On my desktop computer i have been using a 5 button mouse. On my laptop i felt a little handicapped not to be able to use all the buttons all the times. Now i have found a solution. As far as i know this only works with a Synaptics Touchpad, with Synaptics drivers and configurations tools installed.
- Start -> Control Panel -> Mouse -> Device Settings
- Select Synaptics Touchpad (PS/2) (If not available, you are out of luck)
- Click on Settings
- Click on Tapping in the Tree, and then enable tapping (if already not)
- Click plus sign besides Tapping
- Click plus sign besides Tap Zones
- Then click on the desired zone you want to configure.
- Select the function on the zones. (You can also modify the size of tapping zones)
Click Apply, OK (Settings Dialog), OK (Mouse Dialog)
Now you can have a 2+ buttons on a touch pad.
Here is how i have:
- TL: Back (Button 4)
- TR: Forward (Button 5)
- BL: Right Click (Secondary Click)
- BR: Middle Click
