  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Four-finger swipe constantly stops working

    I'm running Snow Leopard on my 27" iMac with a Magic Trackpad, and the four-finger swipe Expose gesture regularly stops working, which two and three-finger gestures continue to work fine. 
    Sometimes a reboot will fix the problem, other times I can reboot two or three times before four-finger swipe works again.  I've used the trackpad since it was released with no issues until a month or two ago when the problem started. 
    I've installed the latest combo update, repaired disk permissions many times over, reset PRAM and SMC, deleted a plist file pertaining to Expose which someone on the forum recommended.  Nothing has helped as of yet.
    When 10.7 Lion is released I'll do a full and fresh install which should finally take care of things, but until then I'd love to get this working without having to reinstall 10.6. 
    Thanks for any help.

  • Finger gesture not working on ipad

    Ever since the iOS 8 update and the latest updates there after, figure gestures on my iPad are simply not working. To get then to work you need to drag down from the top of the screen to see notifications and then it works. have spoken to apple and they suggested it was an app but it does it on everything. Come on apple sort this out its very frustrating. Has anyone had this and have a solution ?

    Define "finger gestures". The iPad is a touch screen device so that's a pretty broad category. If you are talking about multi tasking gestures, like pinching to the home screen, or using a four finger swipe, I have found it to be flakey since the iOS 8 update as well. If it quits working on me, I go into the Settings>General>Mulitasking Gestures and turn it off, then on again. That's not a fix, but it usually holds for a few weeks before I uave to do it again.

  • Four finger swipe shows screenshot of last session

    A bit confusing to explain so I'll give an example. I'd written out out a note in the Notes app, then deleted the note and closed the app. Then later when I opened up Notes again and did the four-finger swipe to close something, I could see a small screenshot of the deleted note like it had 'remembered' the last screen it was on. This happens with all apps and the internet, meaning that when I scroll through open apps, sometimes I get a miniature glimpse of whatever email I was last writing or whoever's Facebook page I was last on, even though the app has since been closed and reopened.
    Any way to solve this?

    Unfortunately I misread G3Gators answer. I read the article now please read my demonstration to show the difference between open and closed apps
    1 Turn the camera on. Double tap the home button. Notice the camera app has a live picture. That is a open app.
    2 Turn the camera on. Single tap the home button. Wait a second. Double tap the home button. The camera app preview has a fuzzy picture. That app is closed.
    3 Turn camera on. Double tap the home button, once again the camera is live. Tap one of the other app previews to open another app. Wait 10 seconds. Double tap the home button. The camera app preview is now black. Even though the camera was purposely left on the ipad turned it off. That app needless to say is closed.
    Why do you need a history of the apps you used ? Your original question was why were you seeing apps you had used. What you were seeing was the history, not running apps.

  • Multi finger gesture not working

    My laptop is hp 15-r014TX.
    Recently my touchpad multi finger gesture has stopped working. I can not scroll using 2-finger scroll, right click, rotation, zoom in and out. However, one-finger gestures are all working fine like I can swap between apps by left swipe, options appear by right swipe. I tried changing the settings, but of no use.

    Hello @Pragya_Mathur ,
    Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have read your thread on your HP 15-r014tx Notebook and the finger gestures not working correctly. Here is a document on how to troubleshoot the finger gestures on a Touchpad.
    If you will go to the section on common TouchPad gestures, TouchPad and ClickPad configuration options are located on the TouchPad properties page. It shows you the Clickpad properties page. You can select the options.  This only works on programs that have this capability, such as a photo browser or word processor.
    Hope this fixes your issue with finger gestures.

  • Four Finger Swipe to Desktop

    Has anyone figured out how to revert the four finger swipe up to see the desktop? I've been using that for years and with Mavericks I cannot. I would like to have four finger swip up for show desktop, and swipe down for expose. It's destroyed my producitivty for that feature.

    You can show the desktop with a three-finger spread if it is enabled here:
    System Preferences > Trackpad > More Gestures > check Show Desktop
    Commant+F3 (Command+F3+fn depening on your settings)
    You can also program your own custom gestures with BetterTouchTool

  • Four finger swipe produces black screen

    I have just discovered that a four finger swipe upward produces a black screen. Is there any news about this happening.

    I just upgraded to iOS 6.1 and am experiencing this problem. It doesn't seem to affect anything else but I don't remember seeing this "extra" screen before. I tried restoring it to no avail. I have an iPad 2 32GB.
    Anyone have any ideas?

  • Windows 8.1 pro 64 bit - finger print not working (sony viao 15126pab) hi i am using sony svs 15126pab  2 days before firefox hanged so i forcefully shutdown the system , after rebooting fingerprint not workingthen i go to device manager i found biometrics working properly , 2, 3 times restarted then also finger print not working, then i checked the authentic true suite " its giving error message box and closing every times then i uninstall authentic true suite and installed again ,it asked registration and i  registered but i didn't see the finger enrolling options in the software . i enabled biometrics options  in administrative templates (components) , other options also enabled in services restarted , reinstalled from Sony Store  - nothing helps..................... please help me ,,, i cant enable the add option of fingerprint in sign in options in settings.. the add option is like deactivated , no biometrics tool in control panel, no fingerprint enrolling option in authentic true suite . i purchased the system with windows 8 pro then upgraded to 8.1 now its reserved to windows 10 . so pls give me some solutions to rectify this problem 

    I cant access any printers, not even the virtual printers.
    What I would do is use ProcMon to find out why that Event entry was written.  Then I imagine I would get a clue about a .dll which might be involved, which hopefully might be registerable.  Since IE9 there have been new .dll  involving printing
    which have not been reflected in any of our repair tools.  However, instead of modifying our old scripts to reflect this fact, I have been advocating, so far unsuccessfully, that Microsoft create a proper IE Repair tool, one which does not rely on such
    unreliable techniques.   E.g. a better method of repairing would be to have it done by a proper troubleshooter (an .msdt file) but so far it seems nothing has been done in that way for these symptoms (again, assuming the cause is registry corruption
    and not simple interference from now incompatible third-party programming--the fix for that would be to identify and remove the incompatibilities.)   For example.
