How can I enable inertial scroll in Windows 7 running on my mid-2010 13" MBP? Also, can I enable other gestures, such as the three finger back/forward swipe in browsers? Sorry if this has already been asked somewhere; I looked and couldn't find anything.
Cheers

If you have properly installed the Boot Camp drivers, you should have a small diamond shape icon in your Windows 7 notification tray. That's the Boot Camp control panel. Click on it to open the control panel, then choose the trackpad options. (Maybe a few more steps. I'm currently not in Win 7)

Regards.

Yeah, I've looked at the Boot Camp control panel, and it has nothing about inertial scrolling. I've read about installing drivers for this, but I don't think that would work because I already had to install drivers to run Windows on this machine. Also, two-finger scrolling is jerky and generally low quality. Does anyone know how to fix this?

A quick fix which improves two-finger scrolling: In the Windows Control Panel, under Mouse, under the Wheel tab you can try decreasing the number of lines per click from 3 to 1. Hope this helps!

I'd love to see inertial scrolling too, but we'll have to wait until Apple decides to update their BootCamp driver suite.
