Acer aspire 5735 touchpad not working properly doesn't zoom


You can try updating the software for the touch pad but the most likely problem is you have a bad touch pad. Touch pads don't necessarily go all at once. You lose some functionality. In your case, it would appear you are able to to point and move the cursor. You didn't mention, does the touchpad respond when you tap it to hit ENTER instead of hitting the ENTER key itself. This is 1 area that will commonly lose function over time as well.

Hello i have a Acer Laptop and when i was online it zoomed the site i was looking at to make it really big,but now it seems its locked when i try and move it out.When i touch the touch pad to try and zoom...


Zooms in and out while on internet? -- this is a "feature", and it happens because of your use of the TOUCHPAD. Resolved with a "pinch" on the pad -- making your fingers come together to zoom in, pinching fingers apart to zoom out (like an Iphone map application)

Toshiba Laptop spontaneous font size change


Disable the dreadful "pinch-zoom" of the Snyaptics touch pad.
How it is supposed to be used is at
http://www.synaptics.com/solutions/technology/gestures/touchpad . However, I tried these "gestures" and none of it worked on my touchpad.

On Windows7, one can disable this poor excuse for a feature by going to Control Panel->Hardware and sound->Devices and printers->Mouse->Device Settings->Settings [button half-way down, on the right]->pinch zoom. Then uncheck "enable pinch zoom".

I too touch or dosomething without relizing and then the font gets really small please i need it back to normal asap


There are two solutions that I am aware of to fix this type of problem. First of all, when you are browsing the internet using Internet Explorer, you can use the toolbar at the top and click the View menu. Go down to Zoom and select zoom in, or choose a % size for your screen. Secondly, when the screen resizes after you touch the touch pad, this is a setting that can be disabled. Go to Start, Control Panel, and look for Mouse. Under the mouse settings, there should be a selection for disabling the touchpad zoom feature. You may also be able to adjust the sensitivity of this feature if you do not want to disable it. On my netbook, if I do a "diagonal pinch" on the touchpad it zooms out. If I draw a diagonal line using two fingers, from the center of the touchpad out to the corners it zooms back in.

  2. "Mouse" properties
  3. Click "Dell Touchpad" tab
  4. Look for the "Zoom" feature and disable it.
  5. That's it.

How do I turn the synaptic touch pad off on my acer aspire


This should be an easy fix...after many months of trying to disable touchpads on machines that did not have the one button disable feature either in the control panel or on the touchpad itself I discovered it was one of the function keys.

Press function (FN) and the "F7" key...press again to re-enable. Good luck!

Everytime Im on line, my screen zooms in and out all on its own.


you can disable that feature. im not sure exactly where because my AA1 is currently out of commission, but go under control panel (classic view) and open the "mouse" icon and hunt for advanced settings. the zooming in and out happens when you use two fingers on the track pad. it happens to me a lot when i have my left finger on the left-click button and my right finger controlling the cursor, and i accidentally am touching the pad itself with my left finger as well.. that will zoom you in and out, depending on which way you move your fingers (together or apart). ctrl+0 (zero) will reset you to the normal screen size.
