Microsoft has revealed that they are taking seriously the issues that are being experienced by a number of users with the trackpad’s on their Windows 8 devices. Microsoft is now working closely with Intel to sort out the issues and improve responsiveness in its Windows 8.1 operating system that will be launching later this year.
Microsoft has also been working with ELAN, and Synaptics to allow Windows 8.1 to directly control the pointer, multi-touch, and gesture support in trackpads. It has been reported that in some system running Windows 8 the multi-touch gestures and two finger scroll functions have not been working correctly together with other issues that have been hindering trackpad usage for users.
But its good to now see that Micrsofot is taking the issues seriously and now researching fixes for the problems. At the recent Build 2013 conference Windows principal program manager James Clarke outlined some of the improvements being planned for the Windows 8.1 release.
