    Just go to your start screen and swipe about halfway to the app list, but keep your finger there... And then swipe left or right on hardware keys while still keeping your finger on screen and see the touch work like the screen even on hardware keys...

    Tested on Lumia 525 WP 8.1 with Lumia Cyan ... Not sure about others... Try this out and report your find...

    Did you swipe halfway and keep your finger there and then tried the hardware keys???

    Doesn't work on my 822
    Are you sure the finger with which you are trying to "swipe" hardware keys doesn't touch the screen?
    I tried it with one finger on the screen and second swiping the display left or right and it actually swiped it like there was no second finger holding the screen... D'uh!

    Yes... It even works that way... But if you swipe your another finger on hardware keys below screen, it works the same way as above....

    Lol, isn't it too early for April Fools or something? The reason why it goes back to your Start screen is because you hit the Start button when swiping at the hardware buttons.

    No, the buttons do not activate when you do that, they move the screen left and right like you were actually touching them.

    The EASY WAY
    Swipe halfway to the app list...(without lifting your finger from the halfway swipe) swipe down your finger to the hardware keys

    It appears when you touch the screen, it activates scroll (left / right) for the WHOLE screen, kinda overrides the hardware buttons.

    Works as described on my Lumia 1520 w CYAN & Dev Preview update 1 (GDR1 ?)
