    Hey guys,
    Noticed another annoying thing,
    unlike most multi touch trackpads, if you have two fingers on the trackpad it should register as doing a multi-touch gesture such as scroll up/down/right/left but instead it keeps moving the mouse scroll.

    Problem with this is that the mouse moves around when your trying to scroll or do other things! This is especially noticeable if your trying to scroll and then click with the trackpad at the same time!

    Unrelated but just discovered that using the touch keyboard u can use 2 fingers to scroll app and down in a webpage, cool

    Also anyone finds it annoying that there is no F2 which I used a lot for renaming files? also is there any other way of renaming using a keyboard shortcut?

    Fn + VolDown will act as F2. Basically, all the F-buttons are still there you just have to Fn them.

    On the Type Cover this is clear as it shows F-numbers as well as charms/media control, the Touch Cover doesn't but works the same way.

    Mine doesn't do that. Are you using the touch or type cover? My mouse cursor stays put when scrolling using the two finger gesture.
