[Flicks are a Windows 7 Home Premium and above feature]
Flicks are neat touch gestures that allow you to do a few things quickly in Windows 7. I have used Flicks on almost every tablet that I have used.
Navigational flicks enabled.
Each one of these flicks can be customized. For the details check:
Microsoft - What are pen flicks?
I like the basic flicks, but I like editing them to suit my needs.
Some of my current flicks:
- Up - Maximize Window (F11)
- Up/Right - 3D Flip (Ctrl+Win+Tab)
- Right - Back
- Down/Right - Cycle Tabs (Ctrl+Tab)
- Down - Taskbar (Win+B)
- Down/Left - Copy
- Left - Forward
- Up/Left - Paste
I wish flicks adjusted to the currently running program, but for now we have to settle for flicks that don't adjust.
One way of launching programs through flicks is by adding a shortcut to the desktop, add a key shortcut to them, and then edit a flick with the same key combination.
Launching a virtual keyboard with a flick
- Very commonly used programs, websites, explorer, files, etc.
- Try Ctrl+Alt+Tab instead of the normal Alt+Tab
- Launching Windows Mobility Center or Lenovo Simpletab

If you disable flicks you can achieve a smoother experience, if you don't need them then disable them.
