Synaptics Touchpad – Making three finger swipe control back and forward in browsers

For some reason the only three finger swipe gesture that shows up in the Synaptics driver is for switching apps.
I want three finger swipe to be forward and back in browsers.

I found the following instructions:

Open Regedit and Navigate to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER
SOFTWARE
Synatics
SynTP
Touchpadxxxxx
3FingerGestures

For making back and forward swiping work in browsers:
ActionID1 = 5c
ActionID3 = 1c
ActionID5 = 5d
ActionID7 = 1c

Reboot.  The driver will still show “Switching Apps” as the three finger gesture but it forward and back start working.

Remove Creative Cloud Files from Windows Explorer


I’ve used Photoshop for years and have been using Lightroom.  Both are great products but lately Adobe has been including a link to Creative Cloud Files in Windows Explorer.  I’m not even sure what use it is. Maybe it’s useful for some people but I find it annoying.  Here’s how you remove the link in Windows Explorer.
Run regedit
Find “Creative Cloud Files”
Look for System.IsPinnedToNameSpaceTree

It’s value is most likely set to 1.  Change it to 0.
Close and re-open Windows Explorer. Creative Cloud Files should be gone.
You might have to reboot.
