I can't say I know what a two-finger scroll is.

On my mousepad, for example, the majority of the pad is used for moving the pointer around. Areas at the right and bottom edges are used for scrolling. If I use a two-finger tap on my pad (or a one-finger tap in the top-right corner), it equals a middle-click.

Can you explain what it is you're talking about?

..i want to have the two finger scroll on it as well
--inferring, I guess that it does work in windows. Now if you only only say how

Does that two-finger scroll even work in windows OS ?
