How To Turn Mouse Pad On

Photo by Matt Elliott/CNETI may have saved my mother's sanity with this tip. She was enjoying her new Dell laptop except for the fact that it would suddenly zoom in and out when she was browsing the Web or using Outlook, sometimes deleting a half-penned e-mail in the process. (Not helping matters was the fact that my dad was not experiencing such mousing behaviors.) During my last visit, I discovered the problem: pinch zoom.One of the many multitouch gestures on today's laptops is the ability to pinch two fingers to zoom in and out in a window. When viewing images or a map, such zooming is a convenient way to get a closer look. It can be maddening, however, when you are simply trying to navigate the Web or fire off an e-mail.When I'm not blogging, I can often be found reviewing laptops, and I have tested a number of laptops where the pinch zoom setting was more annoyance than convenience. By my unscientific count, Synaptics is the most popular touch-pad driver. I have also recently tested a new Dell ultrabook that uses a touch-pad driver from Cypress.
