If you're using a touchpad on a laptop, like me with some fat fingers, the swip action is actually quite intrusive.  you can turn if off with the following

 

Disable swipe on Trackpad

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Synaptics\SynTPEnh\ZoneConfig\TouchPadPS2\Right Edge Pull]

"ActionType"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Synaptics\SynTPEnh\ZoneConfig\TouchPadPS2\Left Edge Pull]

"ActionType"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Synaptics\SynTPEnh\ZoneConfig\TouchPadPS2\Right Edge Pull Extended Zone]

"ActionType"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Synaptics\SynTPEnh\ZoneConfig\TouchPadPS2\Top Edge Pull]

"ActionType"=dword:00000000

 

 Re-enable:
