Just got one of these things. Could be a great product if Logitech could implement these changes. Right now, I'm thinking about returning it and trying another brand. I really love my Logitech mouse and wish the touchpad was as flexible in the way the software permits user adaptability. The no two finger tap right click is the dealbreaker for me, but programmable buttons would be very useful.

can we get an update on this basic, but critical, feature? Otherwise I'm going to have to return this defective device.
I just noticed this is marked as "Solved"? Whats the solution???

It's definitly not solved, I emailed about middle clicking and just got a generic "I've forwarded your suggestion to the engineers" reply.
The sad part is, on logitech's own website it shows a middle/3rd button option.

I agree that two-finger tap for right click would be really useful. The difference on the Magic TrackPad is that it actually has buttons on the bottom corners that initiate the clicking as opposed to pressure sensitivity which I think provides superior performance with respect to click intents. The pressure detection often clicks unintentionally. Additionally, the software really needs an inverse scrolling option. It took me a while to adjust to Apple's choice that the scroll should mimic the behavior of the real world (if you push a peice of paper up, you are really scrolling the text on thet paper down, think about it) but it now seems much more natural. The fact that the Logitech touchpad scrolls the "worng" way is driving me insane.

Oh and your Avatars are soooo 2001. Please update your forum to use Gravatar. Its really sad that while being the best perhiperal maker for the PC (IMO) that Logitech is so far behind Apple on the beautyy/usability spectrum.

I also would like to appeal to the team of engineers of logitech to create a 2fingers tap for right click and 3 fingers tap for middle click. It would be most productive to us in using your touchpad with these 2 features enable in your next release of software update. The middle click on a link in a website allow users to open the link in a new tab, saving the motion to right click and open in new tab. By implementing the 2fingers tap as right click, it is beneficial to Logitech because any mechanical buttons is prone to failure. Therefore alternative measures like 1fingers tap, 2fingers tap to 4 fingers tap, shift the workload off the buttons and reduce failure and return rate to Logitech which might be costly.
As pc user surf internet most of the time and open more than tabs in a single browser, would Logitech consider making surfing more effective like having gestures etc: 3fingers vertical swipe (Up) to open new tab, 3fingers Vertical swipe (Down) to close tabs, rotate gestures to switch between tabs for all browsers? You had already created 2fingers scroll to move up & down the page which is a terrific job, so maybe you can free the 3fingers up & down vertical swipe for some better functions like what i suggested above. There was also one user who feedback that the buttons on the Touchpad could be assigned with other functions like paste, cut, copy or others. Maybe you can allow the user to customise the button like assigning a program (Calculator, chrome, media player....)to be launch by clicking the button.
Logitech will attract more customer in your Touchpad sale if potential customers see that Logitech is willing to listen and implement the features raised by their existing loyal customers in the forums. It is here they will see if Logitech is attentive and responsive to user requests.
Lastly as pioneer in the Wireless Touchpad, i do hope Logitech could create a bigger gaps to their competitors by filling up these features which could be filled up by them should Logitech ignore. Logitech had lots of capable and competence Engineers plus brillant and courageous people who create this product and push it into the market where no one else does. I or maybe we, users and customers can only passively look up and await these talented people to make new breakthrough in these features we request and together, make this product extraordinary good.

I totally agree.
Although I kinda like the touchpad it is not a finished product, when you offer it without a middle mouse click functionality. I don't appreciate that I can't configure the gestures, add new ones and so on, but I wouldn't gripe about it, wasn't it for a middle mouse click.
Please, add a mouse button gesture (preferably three finger tap) as soon as possible. Without it, browsing the interwebs is a nightmare (I have CTS) of context menus. The quicker I can do an action, the less pain I feel (literally) ^^

To add on more functionality, could LogiTech consider adding multiple zone taps like one of the member in this forum highlighted?
The reason i suggest this is because Logitech could add numberic on each tap zone so it become a numberpad. Maybe you could create a gesture or double tap on bottom left hand corner to activate this function from Touchpad to Numberpad( as you seen in keyboard).
It would be great if Logitech could add pinch for zoom and rotate function too.
Maybe can also consider using new gestures like 3 fingers pinch instead of standard 2finger pinch for Closing broswer tab and reverse 3fingers pinch for opening tab and 4fingers pinch for closing the current application.
Logitech had done a great favor to us by creating the expose function(4 fingers swipe upward), can Logitech allow user to customize this feature, etc: adjusting the speed of the animation or add more animations like bounce when this feature is trigger since every user preference is different?
If you had concern regarding the 2fingers and 3fingers tap, can you add these functions but disable by default and allow user to customize and enable it as some user prefer 2fingers tap for middle while other prefer 2fingers tap for right click?

Hello, i wanted to add a tip here that may help some of you seeking for a solution of doing a middle click on the touchpad...
It is a small piece of software called the middle click simulator. you can download it here:
What it will do: Once you click on both buttons of the pad it will do a middle click... im using it some time and am very happy with the usability it added, you will have to add it to your startup list if you dont want to start it every time after starting windows.

I've got to say I really do like this touch pad. However, I REALLY do agree with what these other posters are saying. A right-click touch function and a middle click touch function would be great. For me, I use touch controls to do everything on the computer with this device. But when I have to right-click, it just breaks the flow of things for me. I guess I think a mouse or trackball or touchpad should be intuitive (in other words, I shouldn't have to look at it or stop to think how to use it). Dropping down to hit the right-click button after doing everything else on the pad slows things up a bit, and seems unnecessary to me.
But otherwise, I dig the device (there are some hardware changes that could be made such as a larger touch area that has a different tactile feel to it than the border (again, going back to that no-looking, intuitive experience). But for now, some software/firmware tweaks would make this a stronger competitor.
Thanks, and take care!
