  1. Window display suddenly enlarged

    Hello. I just read a locked thread with all unhelpful answers. I just stumbled upon the answer for my HP Laptop, purchased around March 2020, because I had noted where my right hand was when it happened. I had just skimmed the touchpad by accident.

    It occurred to me that perhaps the pinching motion I use on my IPhone, which I have only owned for about the same time, would reset the screen to normal size, and making that pinching motion to shrink to normal worked! Not a heavy cell phone user. The Iphone replaced a cheap Android, so I have low experience with it.

    There is a setting under Devices called Touchpad. I've set everything to "do nothing" in case I inadvertently skim it again. I hope this stops the surprise enlargements and movement of "sheets," or whatever the proper term is. I'm old school and just want everything locked down.
