  • 3 finger swipe not working

    i don't know when it stopped, i have installed snow leopard, can't be sure it was since then, but my 3 finger swipe has stopped working in any program. don't use firefox. just updated safari, snow leopard, nothing unusual installed recently.
    any ideas? know issue? i've seen a few posts, but they mostly relate to firefox.

    After I installed the recent security update for Mac OS X v10.6.2 Snow Leopard on my MacBook Pro, I noticed this problem just today. The problem affects all multi-touch gestures, including but not limited to the following:
    Gestures Not Working
    3 finger swipe
    4 finger swipe (switching applications, show deskop, and expose')
    Rotate & Pinch
    Gestures Working for now
    Secondary click (on bottom-right of trackpad)
    2 finger right-click
    2 finger scrolling
    Tap to click
    Dragging (without enabling "tap to click")
    I've had my MacBook Pro since December 2009 when I bought it at a Best Buy, and I have a Best Buy warranty so if it is hardware-related, then I can just drop it off at a local Best Buy and let a Geek Squad Agent deal with it.
    If you want to send your complaints to Apple about this issue, send an email using this link ([email protected]). According to, the public release of Mac OS X v10.6.3 Snow Leopard is expected to be released in 6 weeks from now with more support for certain technologies, applications, and more stability to target crashes, bugs, etc.

  • Zoom the screen with ctrl   2-Finger Swipe not working in Mavericks

    I just bought a new Macbook Air for my wife (running Mavericks) and can't figure out why the Zoom the screen with ctrl   2-Finger Swipe is not working.
    I can't find the setting anywhere. 
    I looked on my Macbook Pro running Mavericks (on which the zoom still works), but I cannot find the setting on that computer either.
    Please help.

    System Preferences---> Accessibility---> Zoom---> Use scroll gesture with modifier key to zoom. Select ctrl in the drop down menu.
    It's a feature not normally turned on, so you might of had it turned on on your Mac before upgrading to Mavericks. And it just kept the setting.

  • Magic Mouse - Two Finger Swipe not working in Finder + iTunes

    since OSX 10.8 I realized that in Finder & iTunes the backward/forward navigation has stopped working with Magic Mouse (two-finger-swipe gesture).
    I have already read a lot of forums as well as apple-discussions and didn't find a solution apart from MagicPrefs or any other 3rd-party-app.
    Is that a bug or just not meant to work? Does anybody know why Apple stopped providing this - very useful - gesture?
    Thank you for your time and have a perfect day

    Pual_31 suggested good advise...
    I would also recommend if that does not work, to reboot and run "repair permissions" from Disk Utilities.
    Also might suggest downloading and trying MagicPrefs, it's a free program for the Magic Mouse and it really works great. May help with your problem, may not but I'd give it a try.

  • Four finger swipe not working on iPad

    The four finger swipe feature to switch between open apps is not working on my iPad.  How can I restore this feature?

    Your tagline say that you are running iOS 4.2. It doesn't Work in iOS 4.2. you need to upgrade to iOS 5 if you want that feature. You need to update via iTunes on a computer for this update. After you update to iOS 5, you can do future updates OTA via WiFi.

  • Two finger swipe was working for Firefox 7 in my macbook pro running lion yesterday but not today. i have installed Alfred. Has that broken it?

    I was able to use the two finger swipe gesture on my macbook pro trackpad in firefox 7. It was working fine but has just stopped working. It does work if I hold the alt key while swiping but that seems a bit pointless. The only thing I have changed on my mac is that I installed Alfred. Has that broken the gesture?

    Sorry to tell you this but it's starting to sound like a hardware issue.
    Reason being is because youi've had this issue when you had 2GB of RAM, and running Leopard to Snow Leopard then to Lion.
    Even after you've reinstalled everything it was still giving you issues.
    Ok, try this one.  Open the back of your MB, take one RAM out of the top slot, then turn your MB on and see if it still freezes.  If it does, then take the lower RAM off the botton slot and install it on the top slot.  Turn it back on.  If the problem stops, then it could be your RAM slots.

  • Using multiple desktops with a 4 finger swipe on a Mac Book Pro running Lion- is there a way that I can allow Safari open on several but not all??  Looks like I can set it for one but not others.  All, one, or nothing

    Hey Eric,
    Thanks for taking the time. Unfortunately no that does not solve it. Same as swipe it will get me there and it will show separate programs spaced out. The issue I am having is that all my open word files are bunched up in a pile on top of each other. I can see the edges of each one but I want them to be separated from each other enough that I can visually identify what file is what.
    Again, thanks for trying, it is appreciated.

  • Magic Mouse One-Finger Swipe Works for one user but not the other

    For the main account on my iMac, I can use a single finger swipe to move back and forward within Chrome. However the second user (also an administrator) cannot use this setting and must instead use the two finger swipe in settings. Both settings are identical but the Chrome browser wont recognize the single finger swipe for the second user. The gesture works fine in Safari, but not Chrome. Any suggestions?

  • Magic Mouse two finger swipe (forward/back) not working with Opera 10.

    Magic Mouse left and right two finger swipe (forward and back) works great with Safari, Firefox, and Camino.
    I enjoy using Opera 10 and noticed that the two finger swipe does not function with Opera. Any ideas on why or what adjustments I can make to get it to work?

    No workaround so far with this problem and also no posts in the Opera forums. Just have to wait until Opera includes this functionality in their next release.
    In the meantime you can help by joining the forum (takes a minute) and posting your concern. The more people that join and voice their complaint the faster something will get coded into their browser.

  • IPhone is not recognizing my finger "swipe"...HELP

    My iPhone seems frozen. I can click the main "round" button on the bottom of the phone so the screen lights up. From there I try to "swipe" my finger accross the bottom to open my phone & nothing! It does not recognize my finger swipe. Please help me!

    Try the basic troubleshooting steps described in the [User Guide|] (sett page 242):
    Restart phone
    Reset phone (no data loss)
    Restore phone in iTunes using a backup (no data loss)
    Restore phone in iTunes as a new iPhone, without using a backup.
    If the last step doesn't help, there is a hardware failure that needs evaluation by Apple.
    FYI, that "main round button at the bottom" is called the Home button. The User Guide is your friend.

  • The three finger swipe left and right does not seem to work

    I have been trying to do the left and right three finger swipe that allows you to move between applications to no avail.  It just keeps switching between dashboard and one app even if I have 5 apps open at the same time. Snow Leopard has this feature where all the apps opened are shown when you do the swipe and you can choose the one you want.  I think this is better but it doesn't work.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Such spaces actually use very little extra memory relative to the apps you have open to occupy those spaces. I would go out on a limb and say it doesn't matter whether you have one space for every application or all on the same desktop.
    The limitation will come from the applications and the data you are crunching on them.
    (But that's just a personal view, haven't run into any limits on my ow 4GB Macbook Pro so far)

  • Can not do "two finger swipe to go back" in "look up" gesture.

    In Mountain Lion the "two finger swipe right to go back" navigates just fine in the "look up" function in a three finger tap gesture.
    But in Mavericks the two finger swipe right cannot go back.
    This makes a low efficiency.
    Do someone get the same issue or just me? Can this be fixed?

    I just found out that the two finger swipe right don't do any thing on the right side of this red line in the pop up window, but on the left side of this red line, it works.
    Low efficiency.

  • Three-finger swipe in system preferences?

    After I recently re-installed OS X and did the necessary upgrades to 10.6.5, it seems that my Three-finger swipe in system preferences stopped working. Before, I could navigate the system preferences menu going back and forth with the three-finger swipe but now? nothing... anybody has any idea how to fix? I tried re-resetting the PRAM and check/re-checking + reboot but nothing seems to work...
    however, the three finger swipe works in all other applications such as chrome and firefox...

    I never knew this to exist in sys preference. Not sure how this would work since you are not highlighting anything, just selecting???
