Re: How to turn off zoom feature on touchpad

There's a possible solution in another thread, but I haven't tried it yet: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-1xx-3xx-5xx-7xx/IdeaPad-330-15IGM-Trackpad-device-settin...

The solution calls for downloading older drivers from a third-party site.  By the date and size of those drivers, they seem to be the same backup drivers installed by Lenovo on the D: drive.

Re: How to turn off zoom feature on touchpad

I have an elan touchpad, but it didn't have a disable feature for the pinch zoom, so I went to the registry and fixed the problem myself. I did it like this:

 

windows button + R

A run bar should open up. Type in "regedit" and a registry editor should ask permission to run on your computer.

It should look like a windows folder map. 

My zoom was here:

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Elantech\SmartPad
scroll all the way down, i had an option titled "ZOOM_ENABLE"

i set the value to 0 (which means disabled)
1 means enabled

problem solved.

 

maybe this will work for you.

Re: How to turn off zoom feature on touchpad

That sounds promising.  I've changed the registry value to zero.  Time will tell if the problem is solved.  Thanks!

Re: How to turn off zoom feature on touchpad

Thank you SO much for this solution!!

Touchpad issues like this on my L340 are the only thing I hate about this laptop so far, and your solution seems to have fixed the worst one. I spent a couple hours trying several other solutions that got me nowhere, and I was just starting to get upset that I'd have to return an otherwise decent laptop because of one ridiculously stupid touchpad "feature".


I will add just one thing, which some users may forget to do...

 

Use caution: ALWAYS create a backup reg file before editing your registry!! 

It's literally 1 simple step, but will save your a** if something goes wrong:

1. Open the registry editor as described (win btn + R, then run 'regedit')

2. File menu -> export -> save .reg file whereve you'd like

3. To revert back to the pre-edited registry, just use File menu -> import -> select .reg file to restore
