Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

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

\015 When I touch the touchpad, the screen zooms. It is absolutely maddening!\015

Answers :

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,\015\012you might be suffering the same problem as I was which was I had no\015\012idea 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\015\012enabled.

Here is what Synaptics have to say about the 'pinch' gesture:
The\015\012Pinch gesture delivers zooming functionality in many applications. The\015\012Pinch gesture can be used to perform the same function as a scroll\015\012wheel on standard Windows applications that support CTRL-SCROLL WHEEL\015\012zoom functionality.

To perform a pinch gesture, place two\015\012fingers on the TouchPad surface. Move them closer together or further\015\012apart. To zoom in, place your fingers on the TouchPad surface near to\015\012each other and then slide them apart. To zoom out, begin by placing\015\012your 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.
