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.

Jumping print size


If there's a touchpad icon in the notification (tray) area on the lower right, it might have an option to lower the sensitivity. The Control Panel should supply an applet to the touchpad. The best answer is to get a mouse and disable the faulty touchpad.. the can be replaced too. Once a touchpad gets sensitive like that, the mere tapping on the keys of the keyboard can cause the pointer to move on you.

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.

Aspire one ZG5 CCHANGES THE ZOOM LEVEL ON ITS OWN


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. Once I learned, I've 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.
