Touchpad reduce pinch zoom on Windows 10

Q: Touchpad reduce pinch zoom on Windows 10

I installed all drivers for the touchpad. No seeing any UltraNav software. And i don't find any settings to reduce the pinch zoom sensitivity (except enable/disable it).For now the sensitivity are too high, barely to make zooming on browser back to 100% (micrometer precision required) or google maps is zooming too fast. I know i can reset the zoom via keyboard but the annoying part is when I have 2 fingers on the touchpad to prepare the scrolling and it triggers the zooming.Device: X1 Extreme (20MF000XGE)So the question is: does anyone know how to adjust the sensitivity just for the pinch zoom?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Is there a way to reduce the sensitivity of the touchpad and/or disable the zoom feature of the touchpad without disabling the touchpad entirely? Over the years, with my other laptop, I grew used to using my right hand to move the pointer while using my left hand to click my selection, so I often have both hands resting on the touchpad. It's second nature, and a hard habit to break. This is a problem on my Lenovo Edge 15 touchpad, because having my left hand anywhere near the touchpad while moving the pointer around with my right hand, I keep inadvertently activating the zoom in/out feature. I do rely on the touchpad quite a bit, so I don't want to turn it off, but the constant zooming issue is really affecting my productivity. Every minute or two, I'm having to stop and Ctrl+0 to get the screen back to normal magnification. I don't see a simple way to fix this in my mouse/touchpad settings. Thanks.

A:Touchpad Pinch Zoom Problem on Lenovo Edge 15

I hope you've figured this out by now and aren't still having this problem. I figured I'd post anyway in case other people are searching for an answer and having trouble finding it. The zoom was driving me insane also and I finally found an answer on another forum. I have a Lenovo G50, but it's likely the problems would be resolved similarly.  Go to Control Panel > Devices and Printers > Mouse (or just search for "Mouse" in your Cortana search bar). Open Mouse Properties and navigate to the far right tab where your touchpad driver is listed, I'm assuming many of us Lenovo users have the same driver but mine is "Elan". Under where the device is listed there are buttons: Enable Device, Stop Device, Options. Or yours may say "Advanced Settings" instead of Options. Open Opions/Settings.  Find the Multi-Finger tab and location the Zooming option. Check the Disable button (or slow zoom rate if you prefer). Click Apply ...and it's fixed! I'm so much happier now that my screen isn't constantly zooming in and out. My left hand constantly bumps the touchpad and the zooming was NOT working for me.

Hi our boss here has a Surface Pro 4 and mentioned his Pinch and Zoom on the touch screen isn't working any longer. He used to be able to open an Outlook message and he could pinch and zoom successfully using the touch screen. I know sometimes you actually do pinch and zoom on the touch pad. Is this even possible? The setting on the touch pad control panel is enabled and we are able to pinch and zoom on the pad but only in a browser, not within Outlook.

Does anyone know what to look at or check? thank you!

Hi everyone.

I've bought myself a new Dell Inspiron 7537. This is the first time I have a laptop with touchscreen.
I'm still trying to get use to it, and there's something I want to ask.
I've discovered that there are 2 types of pinch zoom.
- The first one is pinch zoom on the touch screen, which is really smooth and responsive. What it does is that it zooms the display .
- The second one is what I really hate, pinch zoom on the trackpad. The different is that this zooms the webpage and its data, it increases the font size of the text, pictures, every content of the webpage while trying to fit everything in the display. It has the same effect as Ctrl + and Ctrl - and it is very laggy!

So my question is: Is there a way to configure the trackpad pinchzoom so that will work just like touch screen pinch zoom?
I know the surface can do that since I've tried it in the store. Zooming with the trackpad on the type cover does the same as zooming on the touch display.
I've been searching everywhere on the internet but couldn't find any way to configure the trackpad pinch zoom. I really hope someone could help me. Thank you in advance.

A:Configuration for Trackpad pinch zoom

You need to make those changes in the Control Panel under the Mouse setting. There should be a tab labeled "Device Settings", that you can use to change the advanced mouse settings. Basic computer 101.

I am getting really annoyed! in Mouse and touchpad settings I don't want pinch and zoom enabled! So I disable it only to find out when I restart the computer, it has enabled itself again. I hate it as I keep rezing my desktop icons because of pinch and zoom. Does anyone know how to solve this please?

A:Pinch and Zoom keep resetting on HP Pavilion 15-ab045sa

I think I found a fix! After mucking around in the registry, trying all sorts of stuff, moving keys around, with some PARTIAL success but not totally satisfactory... something caught my eye...
Open up regedit.exe
Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Synaptics\SynTP\Install
Note this is LOCAL MACHINE, not CURRENT USER.
Look for a key in that Install folder called DeleteUserSettingsOnUpgrade
Double click and change the value to 0
Now go back to the Synaptics control panel, set everything how you like, and reboot. See if it holds. It is holding on mine, still have to test on another computer.
So, this is a sign something weirder is going on behind the scenes, if the driver thinks it is "upgrading" after every reboot.... but anyway, if it works for now, good enough for me!

Hello all! I own a recently purchased Acer E 15 laptop, and like many Windows 8.1 users, I'm very frustrated by the so-called "Precision" touchpad. The pinch-zoom function simply never works when you want it to, but it will suddenly zoom your screen to 300% when you're doing something else.I have been trying to turn pinch-zoom off, but none of the published solutions I've seen in this forum or elsewhere on the web seem to apply to my laptop. When I go into mouse management via the control panel, all I get is this window. I simply don't have the extra "Device Settings" tab shown in all the solutions I've seen. None of the tabs on the window displayed below seem to have any kind of checkbox to control pinch-zoom or any of the other "precision" features. It's the same on the "Mouse" window in the Modern/Touchscreen display. Nowhere do I seem to have the controls to turn pinch-zoom off.Can someone offer me a solution, please? The sudden zooming and unzooming is very annoying and disruptive to my work.Thank you! P.S.: The touchpad is often laggy too, and sometimes just freezes up. I don't know if these are related issues, but if there's a solution for this too, I'd appreciate it.

Following internet articles, I've looked a number of times at the Control Panel under Mouse settings. There's no touchpad listed, and no 'Device Settings' tab at the far right. Then I tried updating the mouse drivers, but all are said to be the most current. I tried downloading a touchpad driver from synaptics, but the dl failed to install on setup twice. I tried checking the UEFI settings (is that the BIOS?) following a previous post here, but cannot see any listing for touchpad. Any ideas? Help! Thanks a lot, Peter

One day I realized I had lost pinch and scroll functions on my touch pad. Don't know why.
So I tried to install a Synaptics touch pad Driver. This provided the missing functions but the Cursor got delayed and the sensitivity of the touch pad was restricted to a certain spot. Therefore I de-installed the Synaptic Driver again.
The sensitivity issued got cured but I still had no pinch and scroll function on the touch pad.
Therefore I went to the Toshiba download site and learned that the ALPS Driver was the original Driver.
I tried to install this Driver (as requested for 64 bits).
The installation seemed to pass smoothly. After re-starting there is still no pinch and scroll functionality and nowhere the driver is found neither in the programs list nor added to the "mouse" Screen in the System functions Folder.

How can I get that pinch, zoom and scroll functions back to my touch pad?

This sounds like program interference, you will need to perform a clean boot and disable firewall and antivirus and then try and install the driver. Here is a description on how to perform a clean boot, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929135

I bought a E520. I am not liking the touchpad on this thing. It hangs up and does not respond a lot of times. The biggest thing that irks me is that my screen will zoom in and out when I run my finger along the touchpad or when tapping it. I know you can use the "pinch" with two fingers to zoom in and out but mine will zoom with just a tap of one finger. Someone must know how to disable the zoom feature. Can you describe in detail to me how to do that? I called Lenovo support about it and the guy said it might be a software or hardware problem and told me to take it into a repair facility. There must be a way in settings to turn that off. I just want the touchpad to work normally, as in move the cursor around.. thats it, nothing more. Can someone help me with this??

(because windows 8 uses 2GB ram while i have only 4GB) Im really eager to try the new Operating system but im hesitating. So please share your thoughts on me. Thanks.

by the way, sorry guys if i posted in the wrong section.

A:windows 8; Would it reduce performance?

Generally speaking 8 use less ram than 7. And ram is one of the cheapest things you can upgrade.

Hi ,
sorry for my poor English.

Windows is tkaing around 20GB on my PC, and my HDD is only 32GB has 8GB free.

What and how can I reduce its size to a minimum size?

A:Reduce Windows size in HDD

Bear in mind that Windows creates a copy of the Windows folder when either
- there's a major upgrade build
- you do an in-place upgrade install repair

That is, you need 20Gb free for that.

That begs the question as to where you put your personal data and installed programs.

It is possible to shrink windows significantly- hopefully someone who's familiar with that may help- I've only read about it in passing.

Is that a SSD and do you have another disk in your laptop?

I have a new PC system with the following specs:

AMD X2 3800+
Asus A8N SLI
2x 1024MB MDT CL2.5 dual mode
2x SATA2 160GB Samsung HD160JJ on a RAID 0 array
256MB 7800GT Gainward 3400PCX PCIe
Soundblaster Audigy ZS2
550 W Antec TruePower

I have Windows XP SP2 and Norton Internet Security 2005 (fully updated) installed. I run Ad-Aware and Spybot weekly, defrag twice a month.

My problem is that I experience lockups, freezes and a few BSODs.

The most often lockups happen when I have just started the PC and I want to open a specific site (www.contra.gr). After clicking any link, the PC hungs up and I must do a manual restart. After the second restart I rarely experience any trouble, when surfing that or other sites. If I don't open the IE and just do my work, or if I browse other sites instead I don't get a quick lockup. Then it rarely freezes when I want to transfer some files from one partition to another. Additionally I got a BSOD twice with the following message:

MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION

STOP: 0x0000009C (0x00000004, 0x8054D5F0, 0xB2000000, 0x00070F0F)

It is really strange, because once restarted I could really do ANYTHING harsh (on a stress-your-PC way) and the system will respond prompty and adequately.

I have run all 5 points mentioned in the Help thread and additionally run a memory stress test; DxDiag and Device Manager as well. No problems found.

Here comes the logfile:

A:Random lockups/freezes and a pinch of BSOD, esp. while surfing certain sites

Before we begin I would like to warn you that this is most likely a hardware problem. STOP: 0x0000009C is caused when your processor reports a hardware error to XP. This can be caused by many different things including inadaquate cooling, bad RAM, and overclocking.

With that in mind we can run a general cleaning if you wish and see if anything shows up. Otherwise I would post this over in the hardware forum expertise in that area.

For a while now my computer has been doing this really weird thing o me. It happens most the time on the internet (browser doesnt matter) and my computer will either zoom in all the way, zoom out or constanyl zoom in and out. Most the time I can "fight" my way out of it by hitting zoom in and out on my keyboard, but not always. Does anyone know what this problem is and can help me fix it?

Thanks!

A:Zoom in/Zoom out freeze out

Are you using the ctrl button on the keyboard when this happens? If not, do you have a different keyboard you can use to see if the problems persists?

I have a netbook with 1 GB of RAM and Windows 7 Starter and it still eats lots of memory without any background program despite reading all tutorials on the internet (kill any non crucial background program and services, using classic theme, disabled visual effects, cleaning registry and junk files, etc)
This makes the hard drive light stay on almost constantly while the RAM is 99% used.

If anyone knows another way to improve RAM memory please reply

A:Reduce Windows 7 memory footprint

Increase the amount of RAM. With 1 GB i think it's going to swap no matter what you do. You don't have enough ram to turn swap and prefetch off.

Now we all know windows Seven is awesome and even includes the kitchen sink, but I've noticed that it also seems to help prevent my computer from overheating. My cheapo laptop has horrible cooling apparently. In Ubuntu, Vista, and previous builds of Seven, my laptop would often shut down due to high internal temperatures. For some reason though, my laptop has not shut down due to overheating a single time since I installed the beta, even when doing intense activities. Anyone else notice anything like this? I don't know if it's really the beta build, but its awesome for me :P

That was there intent in this new windows was to design a windows that will be able to know your using a laptop.And that it will set it up to run everything the way it needs to keep it cool and optimized..You also should see a big difference in the battery life as well..

Hi,

I have a 60 GB SSD and would like to free up storage. My C drive I've lost around 6 GB this year alone, mostly in the windows folder, however I do not think that I have installed 6 GB worth of windows updates.

I've used Disk Cleanup, use CCleaner, and my DriverStore is only 1.9 GB.

Below is a breakdown of most of my windows folder so you can see the size of each folder.

As you can see, the Winsxs is quite large but I'm not sure if there is an adequate method to reduce size.

Thanks for any help, I'll be happy to answer any questions to clarify.

A:28 GB Windows folder. How to reduce bloat?

Don't try to shrink Windows folder or you may have an unstable system.

Under windows, the only two folders that you can clean is the C:\ Temp and C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
