  1. Using Pinch Zoom without touchpad


    Hi,

    I like the pinch to zoom gesture of my Notebook's touchpad. But I'm missing the feature if I use my dockingstation in combination with an external mouse and keyboard (and screens). Often I want to pinch into websites on my screens attached to the docking station. But I don't know how to pinch zoom.

    The only possibility I always have is to open up the notebook's display and use the touchpad, but this does not allow me to work ergonomically on the desk.

    Is there a possibility to get the pinch zoom effect with mouse and keyboard?

    pinch zoom fixes do not work

    I do not have a touchpad. I never said I did. But the posted solution indicates at this is the easy way to Disable Pinch Zoom. that is why I looked for a registry solution


    Educate us on Gaming Laptops. They do not have a touchpad ?

    Edit: Just saw post above. Looks like it does have touchpad. If so, try my suggestion in post #3 which should disable pinch zoom for the system.

    pinch zoom fixes do not work

    Hi Ken

    Just for your info, on my Toshiba laptop when I upgrade to a new build the Synaptics touchpad driver is automatically installed by Windows. Never had an issue.

    It seems as if the OP would use the touchpad to disable Pinch Zoom as described in post #3, it would disable for system and mouse could be used without interference from Pinch Zoom. As an added device, the mouse is not able to access settings for Pinch Zoom.
