When I recently picked up my Yoga 2 Pro, I realized that everything was running smoothly and quietly until I had to right click and a loud audible clicking sound jarred me from my tranquil browsing experience. Without putting thought into how petty this issue may be, I started to seek out the option for right-click two finger tap in the Synaptics settings panel. Unfortunately it was not there, but with some digging, I found it deep in the registry…
