    • Right-click on the desktop and select Personalize > Mouse Pointers . The Mouse Properties settings window will open.
    • Select the Device Settings tab. Select the Synaptic Touch Pad device and click Settings . In the Properties for Synaptic Touch Pad window, expand the "Pointer Motion" topic.
    • Select "Pinch" option and uncheck it.
  • Don't try to contact Geek-squad. It is almost impossible to use their site with only a tab button and they may not be of too much help afterwards.
