How to turn off zoom feature on touchpad

I bought a E520. I am not liking the touchpad on this thing. It hangs up and does not respond a lot of times.

 

The biggest thing that irks me is that my screen will zoom in and out when I run my finger along the touchpad or when tapping it. I know you can use the "pinch" with two fingers to zoom in and out but mine will zoom with just a tap of one finger.

 

Someone must know how to disable the zoom feature. Can you describe in detail to me how to do that? I called Lenovo support about it and the guy said it might be a software or hardware problem and told me to take it into a repair facility. There must be a way in settings to turn that off. I just want the touchpad to work normally, as in move the cursor around.. thats it, nothing more.

 

Can someone help me with this??

In Control Panel go to Mouse -> UltraNav -> TouchPad Settings -> Application Gestures -> Pinch Zoom -> uncheck the Enable Pinch Zoom box. Enjoy!Smiley Very Happy I did not like it either! You can fine tune all the touchpad features to your liking right there.

What if I have ELAN instead of UltraNav?
