Preferred Solution: How to disable Pinch Zoom permanently please

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, Try the following. Hold down the Windows key and press R Into the Run box type regedit and hit enter In the Registry Editor, navigate to the following HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Synaptics\SynTP\Install Inside, look for a key named DeleteUserSettingsOnUpgrade If this is present, right click the key and select Modify Set the Value data field to 0 ( Zero ) and then click Ok. Close the Registry Editor. Make the Synaptics setting changes you require in the usual way and save them, then check if they're now retained after a reboot. Regards, DP-K

Hi everyone, I like this laptop and the touchpad works fine, but I'd like to disable the pinch-to-zoom function. 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

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.

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!

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?

Product Name: HP Pavilion 15-ab045sa 15.6
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

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?

I saved a profile for my Mouse and Touchpad settings. But it still loads the default settings, that has pinch and zoom enabled. I have to Manually load my settings. Come on HP! Not good enough!!!

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:
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!

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.

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.

I have an HP dv3 laptop with a synaptics touchpad. Swiping the left edge of the touch pad causes programs which have a zoom capability to zoom in and out. There is no documentation from HP or Synaptics or Microsoft that I have been able to find which even acknowledges that this feature even exists. I would like to turn the feature off because I keep activating it by accident, but I cannot find a setting anywhere. Perhaps there is a registry setting I can change?

A:Want to disable left edge zoom feature

Some additional information: the pointer becomes the crossed lines with arrows that I associate with Move during the swipe and then after the release the shrinking circle occurs as if I had pressed the CTRL key to locate the cursor. The advertised way of doing a zoom with the keypad is to hold the CTRL key and swipe the right edge.

After going through this myself, from WIn98 thru WinXP Pro, and trying all the recommendations recieved, the only one I have found that works is a nice little program called winpatrol www.winpatrol.com
It will allow you to stop any operation from loading, tell you all you want to know about the programs loading and running on your system, and keep track of anything trying to install or load onto your system. The freeby is nice, however I recommend that you pay the small fee and get the full program. Read the help file, and start stopping all that resource drain I'm sure you have.

I have a Toshiba 64-bit laptop running Windows 10 Home.
Some time ago, I spent DAYS getting Cortana disabled and turned off on my laptop. And now after this last update, MS in it's infinite stupidity has turned it back on.
I've looked at instructions on the internet on how to do disable it and they say to click on an icon on the taskbar. That doesn't exist on my computer.
I went into Settings and turned everything I could find pertaining to Cortana OFF but it is still running in the Task Manager and, of course, when I turn it off there, it starts right back up again.
I bought and paid for this computer and I wish MS would stop acting like it belongs to them and stop fixing things that aren't broken.
And this follows right on the heels of MS updating my email account without notifying me and as a result lost about 400 of my emails with no way to retrieve them.
I am not a happy camper.
Please do not give me Techie directions on how to do this. I'm not a Techie. I need simple 1, 2, 3 instructions. Actually, what I need is for MS to stop screwing with my computer.
You cannot imagine how aggravating it is to spend more time fixing MS problems than problems with all other applications combined.
Thank you for any help you can give me.

Hi all!

I've just joined this forum so that I can gather information about my current problem.

As the title says, I cannot disable proxy permanently.
I go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Internet options > Connections > LAN and I see what the image displays here. Nothing special so far.

I untick Use a proxy server for your LAN. Click Ok, and I quit Control Panel.
If I visit the same panel 2 minutes later, this option is enabled again.

And because of this, I cannot disable proxy on Google Chrome, either.

I've tried many things to solve this problem.
For example, I went to Advanced, and deleted everything there. I clicked OK, then an error message popped up saying: Do you want to turn off proxy connection? I click yes- I go back 30 sec later and it's enabled again.
I even tried some tricks in registry. Still nothing.

I want to disable it permanenty, as it's my private computer, using proxy isn't useful for me.

Any ideas? Why does it always come back?
By the way, I use WiFi connection.

My acer laptop has a touch sensitive screen. Recently i was involved in a car accident and the screen developed as small crack on the bottom right corner of the screen. though that did not affect the visuals, it affected the touch sensors because it was now as if a hundred fingers were clicking on every item on my desktop at the same time and there was nothing i could do, i couldn't open anything or close anything. In a stroke of luck there were a few seconds were there was nothing being clicked, and i quickly managed to access the drivers of the touchscreen and i disabled them and i have been using it perfectly as a normal laptop. But now i want to re-install my windows and i know once i re-install, the drivers also will be re activated during installation and i might never have the luck i had to be able to deactivate them. is there a way i can permanently remove the touchscreen driver so that even if i reload windows it wont be activated. Please help, any help appreciated. thank you in advance.

My laptop supports two graphics card AMD Radeon(TM) HD 6470M and Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 and after a while the AMD got corrupted(I already updated it but I think it's hardware problem) and causes blue screen so I disabled it in safe mode(because it uses the intel one).

I tried a clean install of Windows 7 and during installation AMD causes blue screen because it gets enabled.

And now I want to try a clean install of the Windows 10. Question is, is there anyway I could disable the graphics card permanently?

Get an external usb/wireless keyboard and/or mouse, possibly with styling favored by children. Then, the lid/display can remain down throughout the computer session.
