Settings (except Check for update on startup) are not shared between applications.

SettingsMenu

Load at startup

If checked the application is automatically loaded when the user logs in.

Start minimized

If checked the application window is not shown when launched. To show the window, click on the icon in the system tray.

Works well together with Load at startup.

Show battery alerts

If checked, you will get notified when:

The battery level of your device is 10%

The battery level of your device is 5%

The battery is fully recharged (rechargeable devices only).

Check for update on startup

If checked an automatic Direct update check is performed on application start. If a new version is available the release notes are shown.

Note: This may not work in company networks with proxy servers. In this case, do a manual update check with Help > Web update check... .

An update check can also be performed any time via the Help menu.

If this option is enabled, an update check is also performed every two days while the application is running.

Advanced settings

Shows the internal touch engine settings. This is for internal use only, so do not go wild here.

If things go wrong, reset with Default settings.

Default settings

Resets any settings to their defaults. This includes all reminder settings and all Don't show again dialog settings.

Opens the MagicTrackpadSettings.ini file in the default text editor.

Be caureful you can really mess up things. If things go wrong, reset with Default settings.

Locate user settings file

Opens the Windows File Explorer with the MagicTrackpadSettings.ini selected.
