Two Finger Scroll Annoyance Question

Hi there,

I have just received my new MBA and I have already got use to all the gestures.

However, one thing I noticed is that you cannot use the two finger scroll right to go back a Folder or left to return to a Folder you were previously in; as you can do with webpages.

You can't even press backspace to go back as on Windows.

Any ideas on whether I can solve this by changing settings or app??

Finder does not allow the gestures.

Finder sucks.

I configure Finder to always open a new window.

And when I want to shut down the whole thing I go Option+Close and they all close.

In finder you can do a three finger-swipe to go back. My swipe between pages is set to 3 however. I'm not sure if that is the setting to change or not, but I can go back and forward in finder with 3 finger swipe.. if not download bettertouchtool http://blog.boastr.net/
