Windows 7 flicks are broken


  • Flicks was one of the best touch feature in Windows 7. But they don't seem to work in Windows Developer Preview. I have them enabled in settings, but nothing happens when I perform one. When i click "Practice using flicks", it says "You cannot use a mouse to perform a flick". I am of course trying that with touch screen.

    Is that intentionally broken feature and it will be removed later or do you plan to bring that back?

  • matejdro,

    I was able to use Flicks by using a pen digitizer touch screen.  If I tried to use my finger instead, I also get "You cannot use a mouse to perform a flick" message too.
