I understand that you are unable to use three finger press option with your laptop.
Three finger option can be used only for settings below.
Use the three-finger swipe to view open windows and to switch between open windows and the desktop. ● Swipe 3 fingers away from you to see all open windows. ● Swipe 3 fingers toward you to show the desktop. ● Swipe 3 fingers left or right to switch between open windows.
