    Trackpad Settings app for Windows in the Windows Store

    Works with both Type and Touch Cover. You can reverse scrolling, turn the pad off, turn tap to click off, and turn scrolling off and on.

    Only thing its missing: swipe to change pages.

    Still, this makes my Type Cover a million times better.

    this is great. I like using a Bluetooth mouse with my surface if at a desk. I can disable the touchpad now when I do this. Thanks for the find!

    This is great. This was my only real complaint about the Surface. Now I won't accidentally move the cursor anymore.

    stupid app doesn't work unless you try the trick listed in the review comments. The other thing is, why isn't this just placed under PC Settings with everything else? Not too keen on the app living on my Start screen.

    Because the App is specifically for the Surface not for all Windows 8 devices.

    You can remove it from your start screen by the way. Long press on the app and in the bottom pop up menu remove it from Start Screen.

    Still belongs in the Settings though.

    This sounds like the Windows of old: going to multiple places to do similar tasks.

    Complains about it being on the Start Screen, meanwhile knows how to remove it already.

    I feel like I'm explaining other people's posts today...

    His complaint isn't that it's on the Start screen, but rather that's it's not in the Settings, where it should be. It should be under General, where the keyboard settings are, or even under Devices.

    No need to explain, I understand exactly what he's saying. It should be, could be, but isn't, You either deal with it or try to get it fixed. Tweet Microsoft https://twitter.com/surface and complain to them directly, doing it here won't fix it.

    Good tip. I've tweeted to @Surface and have received a reply almost every time.

    Perhaps it is not in the settings because it is an optional device.
