DOWNLOAD: Windows 8 Synaptics UltraNav driver (for ThinkPads)–BETA

UltraNav1Looks like Lenovo has published a BETA driver for their ThinkPad Synaptics UltraNav TouchPads for Windows 8.

They snuck it out a couple days ago I think and it supports bother 32/64bit Windows 8 on a ton of listed systems:

  • T530, W530, T430s, X230, X230 Tablet, X1 Carbon, L430, L530, Edge E420, Edge E425, Edge E520, Edge E525, T520, W520, T420s, X220, X220 Tablet, X1

I went ahead and tested this on my Lenovo ThinkPad x201 Tablet, and yes, sure enough, Edge Swiping for Windows 8 works!  Edge Swipe Left to get the Charms Bar, Edge Swipe Right to Change Tasks, Edge Swipe Up to get the Configuration Menu.

UltraNav2At first glance, the Mouse Tab for the UltraNav TouchPad doesn’t look that much different.  But once you bring up the Settings button, you’ll see some difference in references to Gestures & edges.

The file’s 32MB in size.
