How can I back or forward a page with my trackpad?

Posted

Some other web browers such as Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, I can move back or forward a page with just a sroll left or right and it is really convenient for an user like me. So please add this feature into the browser.

By default, if your trackpad supports side scrolling, that is used for scrolling. However, an extension like TouchpadSwipe may be what you are looking for.

If you are a Windows 10 user, you may be able to map three-finger swipes to the back and forward buttons of your browser. That setting can be found at: Settings > Touchpad > Advanced Gesture Configuration

However, if your device has a custom driver for your trackpad, you may not be able to change that setting. Although, in some cases, your laptop's driver may have its own settings page that will have similar abilities.

Hope this helps.
