I have an Ultraboook 6 1202ea laptop. After upgrading to Windows 8.1 I now find that the double tap right click opton no longer works.
I believe this is a driver issue - does anybody have any suggestions?

The same thing happened to me, and I'm 99% sure that it's due to the windows 8.1 upgrade. I tried to contact HP support, but they were absolutely worthless (wanted to restore my laptop to factory settings, then reinstall 8.1). Until HP gets their act together and puts out a fix for this, I would suggest using this: http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-enable-two-finge

Found the solution here (thank you thunberg!), reprinted and slightly edited for convenience:
1. To manually re-enable two finger tap, hit windows key + r, enter "regedit" then hit enter, and on the left pane browse to the following location:
2. In the right pane double click on 2FingerTapAction and change the value to a "2" for right click, or a "4" for middle click (I use 2). Also double click on 2FingerTapPluginID and clear any value it may have.
3. Next in the right pane, find the MultiFingerTapFlags key and change it from a 2 to a 3
4. As a bonus, if you want to enable three finger tap for middle click, double click on 3FingerTapAction and change the value to a "4", also clear any value for 3FingerTapPluginID and set 3FingerTapPluginActionID to "0".

So this looks like a bug in the Synaptics driver for 8.1... I can use the manual "click" mehod of right click, so will avoid regedits for now.
I hope there will be an updated driver soon
thanks for your help
