    Does the Magic Mouse and Track Pad on a Macbook Pro 2011 work in bootcamp with Windows 7 in terms of all the gestures? Especially inertial scrolling?

    Once you install the drivers from the OS X install DVD you get many of the features of the track pad. I'm pretty sure inertia scrolling works but I'm not entirely sure about some of the 3 and 4 finger gestures.

    Thanks for the response. I've seen on youtube that other gestures work in Windows 7, but never inertial scrolling in bootcamp. Can someone confirm that inertial scrolling works in Windows 7 bootcamp?

    All touchpad gestures work perfectly well from within a Windows 7 virtual machine under Parallels.

    If you use Chrome there is an extension called Smooth Scroll or something similar that allows for something like inertial scrolling.

    find basic functions like scroll and left click ok

    right click, and zoom gestures are a bit hit n miss for me

    i have early 2011 mbp 17" / win 7 - bootcamp

    Inertial Scrolling in Windows 7 Bootcamp

    I would like to know specifically whether inertial scrolling works under Windows 7 bootcamp with either a trackpad or Magic Mouse. Anyone tried this?

    It does not. However it does scroll really really fast, quite unlike the smooth scrolling in OS X

    You need to adjust the speed in system preferences-->trackpad-->scrolling speed. GO BLUE

    My settings for OS X are fine. It's just obnoxious in windows. It can be slowed a bit, but is still very choppy.
