Enable “Perform Gestures with Alt Key” to use Mouse Gestures with a touchpad.

Did you know that you can use Mouse Gestures even when you don’t have a mouse at hand? Instead you can draw the gestures on your touchpad/trackpad while holding down a modifier key.

To start using Mouse Gestures with a touchpad:

  1. Go to Settings > Mouse Gestures > Gestures.
  2. Enable Perform Gestures with Alt Key.

Then, to perform a gesture:

  1. Hold down the Alt key on your keyboard.
  2. Draw the gesture on the touchpad. (You can view and edit gestures in Settings > Mouse Gestures > Gesture Mapping)
  3. Release Alt key to execute the command.
