Don't you just slide two fingers apart to zoom out and slide them back together to zoom in?

SOURCE: how to disable touch pad in asus k40IN series?

This happend to me on a Asus U81 (Best Buy version of the U80) which has the Elantech mousepad
9.10 includes an X configuration utility called xinput. It is a command line tool. To see the many things you can do with this simply type xinput at a shell prompt.

Start by typing in:
Quote: xinput list This will show you all the input devices attached to your computer. You will need to know your mousepad's id to continue. On My Asus laptop the internal pointer was found as a "ImPS/2 Logitech Wheel Mouse". The Id I get after booting my system with my external mouse attached is 10.

Next you need to know how to disable the mousepad. So you need to know what properties it supports. the command is "xinput list-props" followed by your mousepad's id number, which for me was:
Quote: xinput list-props 10 The "Device Enabled" was what I needed to be able to use to switch it off. On my laptop this line was "Device Enabled (97): 1". The parenthesized number is the properties id number, the 1 that follows it is the value (0 will turn it off).

So now I need to set it such that the mousepad is disabled. My mousepad id is 10, property id I want to set is 97 and I need to set the property value to be 0. The option for xinput is set-int-prop which needs deviceid, propertyid, format of the value (8, 16, or 32 bit), and the value itself. For me this is:
Quote: xinput set-int-prop 10 97 8 0 To turn it back on:
Quote: xinput set-int-prop 10 97 8 1 Since this does its work on the X in memory it is not persistent. If you log out and back in the mousepad will be active again. This is desired behavior for me as I occasionally need to be able to use the laptop without my external mouse.

When I get a little time, I will write a small shell script that can toggle it on or off based on a grep of the output of "xinput list" and bind it to a key combination so I can do this without having to drop out to a script. (EDIT NOTE: See post #15 in this thread if you want the scripts)

One last note, xinput interacts with X. It will not be able to function at a normal terminal screen not running under your X. It will work just fine in an xterminal (the one under accessories menu).

Hope this helps.

Im trying to turn on my touchpad via control panel but when i click the box to turn it on, it wont work


go to acer.com go to support and drivers and download the driver files for the touch pad again that should solve this issue. Follow instructions to the letter and off you should go again unless the touch pad is bad mechanically.

Make sure you input the correct laptop make and model when searching their files. The driver will be there.

I was using to touch pad to browse ebay and the font got small. Tried to fix and it got even smaller! Ugg. When I go away from ebay the font is fine but every time I go there the font has stayed small. ...


You must have been using a multi-touch gesture on your laptop by mistake. You can resolve this in two ways:
  1. Just like zooming out on an iPod, place two fingers on the touch pad, and spread them away from each other OR
  2. In your web broswer - IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, etc. - press Control and 0 (thats the number zero) at the same time. This will bring you back to the standard 100% zoom.

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".

How do i turn off zoom function of synaptics touch pad Hp laptop


Are you talking about the two finger zoom by spreading your fingers apart on the touchpad to zoom out or pinching them together to zoom back in?
This works for Dell touch pads so below where it says ‘Dell touchpad’ it probably says HP touchpad?


· Goto your control panel
· Click on ‘Mouse’
· Click on the ‘Dell touchpad’ tab
· On the resultant popup screen, double click on the main touch pad region
· Click on the ‘gestures’ setting
· Uncheck the zoom
Good luck…Chris

Its because of the touch sensitive navigation pad (the thing that has the up down left right enter/ok controls). The 'rim' or circle of the 4-way pad is touch sensitive and is used to zoom in and out in messages browser and pictures. If it zooms in and out by it self for a few seconds after a call, then its just lag from the multiple times it touched your face, or it could be a problem with the touch sensor (if it takes much longer), in which case you would have to get the phone replaced if its still under warranty, or to the store you bought it if you still can.
