Go to task manger (ctrl+alt+del) and go to processes, you will see a process called syntpenh.exe, right click it and end the process, this will stop the touchpad from understanding zooming and scrolling. If you need to turn it back on go back to task manager click applications and click "new task" type in syntpenh.exe and you will have full function again.

I am unable to zoom web pages in order to read them on my iPhone 4. I do know how to pinch and stretch. Is there a setting I may have changed accidentally?


It's possible your zoom is off and it can be hard to find this setting. This is the 3-finger zoom that should work anywhere. Go to settings>general>accessibility>zoom (should be on)
If it really is the pinch/normal webpage zoom, it may help to know that some web pages have disabled it for consistent behavior across platforms. You may want to be sure that it's not just certain sites.
I hope this helps, please vote this answer up if so.
Thanks in advance.

Can I disable the pinch-zoom from the mouse pad?


Hi,

Go to the touchpad icon on the taskbar and go to the pointing device properties . Go to the device settings tab, then click the settings button. On the left hand side there is a menu of items to select, click on pinch zoom and unclick the enable zoom box, press apply and ok. This should solve your problem.

Please let me know whether this works.

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.

The zoom level on my new acer lap top keeps changing i have been in the control panel to try and stop it but to no avail its very annoying


Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Device Settings > Settings > Advanced Gestures > Pinch

(or alternatively right-click the Synaptics Pointing Device icon in your taskbar and select Pointing Device Properties)

Untick the box that says 'Enable Pinch'. This will disable the zooming.

I hope this helps, this is sooo annoying! I havent been able to do much on my acer at all because of the irratic zooming!

I can't kill the zoom feature on my Acer Laptop. It is a pain.


Go to Control Panel > Mouse > Device Settings > Settings > Advanced Gestures > Pinch

(or alternatively right-click the Synaptics Pointing Device icon in your taskbar and select Pointing Device Properties)

Untick the box that says 'Enable Pinch'. This will disable the zooming.

Additionally, you might be suffering the same problem as I was which was I had no idea how to use the zoom and that's why I wanted to lock it. Having Google stuck on too-big-to-navigate-properly or too-small-to-read for days at a time prompted me to learn. I've since decided the zoom is useful and I'm keeping the feature enabled.

Here is what Synaptics have to say about the 'pinch' gesture:
The Pinch gesture delivers zooming functionality in many applications. The Pinch gesture can be used to perform the same function as a scroll wheel on standard Windows applications that support CTRL-SCROLL WHEEL zoom functionality.

To perform a pinch gesture, place two fingers on the TouchPad surface. Move them closer together or further apart. To zoom in, place your fingers on the TouchPad surface near to each other and then slide them apart. To zoom out, begin by placing your fingers apart and then moving them closer together.

The best zooming experience results when the finger tips of the two fingers are used for the gesture.

That will hopefully be of assistance if you want to learn how to use the zoom rather than disable it. It took some practice but I can do it now without a problem so can fix windows when I accidentally zoom on them.
