    The new Trackpad drivers dont have this option. this driver would enable you to use the upper space of trackpad as Bacl/forward button on windows or IE. I find it very usefull and its onlt vailable to latitude series, but this one works with inspiron and xps series too..

    1. first uninstall your current driver in control panel
    2. then download this

    3. restart and after logon windows gives you message that it has issues but just press "don't show again" and then "Run the program"
    4. go to mouse settings and enable scrolling and Back/forward movement.



    OR you can add Vistas Flip 3Ds to touchpad...chose any cornet of touch pad in setting and chose RUN and then browse here

    " C:\Users\YOURUSENAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch "

    and then click on the flip3d icon...Now when ever you touch that corner it launches flip 3d =)
