Win8CP is still a beta release so not all applications support full multi-touch. Using the Apple TrackPad, I assumed swipe hadn’t been implemented by Microsoft. Not so, the Logitech Touchpad swipes almost all screens.
Within a half an hour, I disconnected the mouse to give the Logitech Touchpad full control of mouse/touch. It works like a charm, including the login sequence which includes swiping the background image up.
