One finger scrolling option for mouse is GONE from preferences?

The one finger scrolling option for mouse is apparently GONE from the mouse system preferences? Why do they move/hide this stuff every other system update? Grrrrr!
I turned off the one finger scrolling option in mouse preferences a while back before my last system update to OSX 10.8.5 because it screwed me up in Photoshop/Illustrator. Recently using Chrome I found I couldn't scroll down windows now on some web pages because the scroll bar at the right doesn't show up very well. I usually use Safari and it works there so it's a Chrome problem. However, I want to turn the one-finger scrolling back on for some things from time to time. When I tried to check the box in mouse preferences, to my horror, that option appears to be gone. What?!? Help!
*totally waiting for a simple answer that I overlooked. I hope.

Did you look in the Zoom menu (press F10 to make the menu bar appear)?

  • HT1338 My new magic mouse will not one finger scroll left and right

    I am up to date with software but after connecting my new magic mouse it will not one finger scroll left and right. It does scroll up and down. Any ideas on what may be wrong??

    I don't have a Magic Mouse, but there is probably a setting that enables and disables horizontal scrolling.  Look on System Preferences Mouse pane.

  • Intermittent bug in Touchpad One-Finger Scrolling with High-DPI display scaling

    This one is quite strange (since it does not happen all the time) but very annoying - on my T420s (with 1600x900 screen) I am using 150% DPI scaling in Windows7 (Pro x64). Ultranav driver is
    I am using the preinstalled Chrome browser in a rather default configuration - and by default that program declares itself not High-DPI-aware and gets scaled up by desktop composition - something that can be changed in the properties from the compatibility tab, but which I keep like that since there are sites that look better this way!
    Long story short - touchpad scrolling fails to work in more than 50% of the cases in that specific Chrome setup in a way that strongly suggests it is a bug where the touchpad scrolling program fails to account for the fact that Chrome runs "scaled-up" - if Chrome is maximized and the mouse is positioned in the top half AND left-half of the screen scrolling works as expected, HOWEVER when the mouse pointer is positioned (still 100% over the Chrome window) towards the right/bottom extremes scrolling fails and the Ultranav driver seems to send the scrolling messages to some other window than Chrome! (since it seems to fail to take into account the 150% scaling - so it gets wrong values with GetWindowRect and should probably use instead stuff like DwmGetWindowAttribute(hWnd, DWMWA_EXTENDED_FRAME_BOUNDS...))!
    Steps to repeat the bug:
    - Windows 7 machine, large-resolution screen with Custom DPI text size set to 150% and the older XP-style scaling disable (which enables the new DWM scaling)
    - Chrome browser in default mode (which will use scaling); to repeat things easily the window should be maximized and the URL should be set to some long page on which scrolling can be performed
    - scrolling should be enabled in Touchpad settings (I do not normally use ChiraMotion, but I do not think it makes a difference)
    - mouse pointer should be positioned in the right-most 10% of the window and Touchpad One-Finger Scrolling should be attempted;
    - in many/most cases the scrolling messages are sent to some other window beneath Chrome (but NOT always, so it seems there might be another factor in play)
    - it is interesting that the different TrackPoint scrolling seems to work even in those conditions.

  • One Finger Zoom Plugin For Web & Photo Browser - M...");return false" target=_blank>
    One Finger Zoom Plugin For Web & Photo Browser - Multitouch Alternative?
    one finger multittouch for 5800xm and n97 very simple to implement zoom/rotate control by doubletapping you set a control point and when you drag the control takes efect need just one hand to controll (multitouch needs two hands to control - you have to hold the device with other hand
    develope it now and upload it to Ovi store, make it free or donationware

    You can listen to whomever you wish.
    But here's why I'm telling you what I am.
    I've been doing this type of thing with still images from a Nikon D200 and now D300 and intercutting them to a video shot with a HVX200, and now HPX170 and HMC150 for more than three years.
    FCP does not have the controls to achieve a professional result.
    More than that, its ease in/out controls jump the image and provide sparse control over the areas of interest and the zoom/pans, among other things.
    I love Noise Industries products. I've tested this one. It's better than some.
    But the interface isn't conducive to a good workflow, and you need to render to see results.
    I respect David's opinions on just about everything.
    But I have tried just all of them - FCP, AE, Motion, Still Life, Moving Picture, PhotoToMovie, Lyric Media's product, and this one from Niclas's NI collection, etc.
    FotoMagico is inexpensive and produces far better results than anything I've seen. And it is so much easier and intuitive to use.

    My daughter has had her Razr for about 9 months now.  About two weeks ago she picked up her phone in the morning on her way to school when she noticed two cracks, both starting at the camera lens. One goes completely to the bottom and the other goes sharply to the side. She has never dropped it and me and my husband went over it with a fine tooth comb. We looked under a magnifying glass and could no find any reason for the glass to crack. Not one ding, scratch or bang. Our daughter really takes good care of her stuff, but we still wanted to make sure before we sent it in for repairs. Well we did and we got a reply from Motorola with a picture of the cracks saying this was customer abuse and that it is not covered under warranty. Even though they did not find any physical damage to back it up. Well I e-mailed them back and told them I did a little research and found pages of people having the same problems. Well I did not hear from them until I received a notice from Fed Ex that they were sending the phone back. NOT FIXED!!! I went to look up why and guess what there is no case open any more for the phone. It has been wiped clean. I put in the RMA # it comes back not found, I put in the ID #, the SN# and all comes back not found. Yet a day earlier all the info was there. I know there is a lot more people like me and all of you, but they just don't want to be bothered so they pay to have it fix, just to have it do it again. Unless they have found the problem and only fixing it on a customer pay only set up. I am furious and will not be recommending this phone to anyone. And to think I was considering this phone for my next up grade! NOT!!!!

    One of you create a new AppleID and one use the existing AppleID.
    But you can still use the items in each iTunes library.
    Create separate computer logins for each of you.
    This will give you each your own data. Contacts, calendars, photos, etc. (and your own iTunes library).

  • Why doesn't two-finger scrolling work for me with Yosemite?

    MacBook Pro from 2010, upgraded to Yosemite and now none of my two-finger scrolling works with the Trackpad. Doesn't work on any application - Chrome, Safari, Word, anything. It's super annoying. Tried messing around with Trackpad options in system preferences, didn't help.

    Hi thekidcanada,
    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!
    I understand that this type of situation can be very frustrating. One troubleshooting step I would recommend would be to reset the PRAM on your computer. I know the article is written for Mavericks but the steps will be the same for Yosemite.

  • How can I enable one finger scrolling in Lion ?

    I have looked everywhere to try and find a way to set up "scroll zones." Where you touch with one finger on the vertical or horizontal edges of the trackpad to scroll. All my serches result in "scrolling reversed in OSX Lion" and I have found it impossible to wade through them, I have this amazingley huge trackpad and I can't use it like I'm used to. Please help.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I do enjoy the two finger scrolling. However using it exclusively cramps my fingers and I would image it cramps other peoples fingures as well, I'm not looking to replace the two fingure scrolling. I am looking to suppliment it with scrolling zones though, I have this enourmous trackpad (the best in the mobile computing world) that would be absoutely ideal for use with scrolling zones. I have been researching quite a bit and can't find a solution. Hoping I can find a solution here. I would love to be able to slide one finger sideways along the top and bottom to scroll to the side, and slide one finger up and down along the left and right edges to scroll up and down. I really hope I can find a solution. Please somebody....let me know if theres a program/plugin that can do this????

  • Firefox will not go back and forth one page / one site using Mac Lion one finger scroll back and forth - how do I do it? Thank you.

    ... just upgraded to Lion from Snow Leopard. Swiping a (one) finger (left) back and (right) forth should move the pages / sites back and forward.
    It does not on Firefox but does on Safari.
    Please tell me how to make Firefox work.
    Thank you -
    Wm. Pordy

    You can get the drop down list by either right-clicking on the back/forward buttons, or holding down the left button until the list appears.
    If you want the drop-down arrow you can add it with the Back/forward dropmarker add-on -

  • 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?

  • Why isn't two finger scroll working for both users

    I recently set up two users on our home iMac, the trackpad srolling option and swipe right to left / left to right only works for one. Is this to be expected or could I have a defected trackpad? I've compared the options selected in system preferences and they're the same.

    Look under the Trackpad preferences under System Preferences. I'm sure you will find what you need there.

  • Unwanted one-finger scrolling in 10.4.11

    As I use a mouse or trackpad to move the cursor, the entire application window scrolls in the opposite direction. Even the menu bar scrolls up out of sight. It happens in all applications. Two-finger vertical scrolling works normally, but it won't scroll horizontally. What's happening?

    Problem solved -- I had inadvertently entered the zoom mode. Got out of it, scrolling returned to normal.

     Going back to Windows 7 was not a very viable option after using half of my monthly data quota to get upgraded to Windows 10. Using the old driver works better and I quit using Windows Explorer (Edge) and instead am using Google Chrome for my internet and the scrolling works well with it. Problem solved.
