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.

    If these don't work you probably have a hardware problem. Visit an Apple store for an evaluation or contact Apple Support.

  • So my home button stopped working due to water damage. I put it in the microwave(for real no joke) so the water can evaporate. 2 seconds in and the screen sparked blue and now its not working any suggestions on helping me fix it?

    Please help me guys itll be a great help

    Hey Peter, I think your missing the big picture. Your iPod is past repair, corrosion, is a real issue with water damage, but your problem took a turn for the worst when you attempted to use a microwave to dry it out. I see you found another post from July 2012, where someone else tried to nuke there iPod, and got the same results you have-- a dead iPod. The blue sparks, burnt smell and still not working all confirms one thing... Your iPod is not repairable. What the water didn't damage the microwave did. By attempting to microwave, you for all intensive purposes hit your iPod with an EMP, (Electro-Magnetic Pulse), in the first split second you overloaded the workings of your iPod and burned it up! There is is no way of known which circuits and components have been damaged and to what extend. You may be able to get a refurbished iPod, but it is unclear that Apple will allow it, because of the type of damage, it's not like this was an accident, you deliberately put it in the microwave in a misguided attempt to dry it out. when the microwave turned on it hit ever chip, diode, capacitor etc. with more power than it was designed to handle, in short; you baked it, burned it up, fried it, call it what you want, but it's not going to work! To attempt to repair is a meaningless gesture, (and probably will cost more than it's worth), chalk this one up as bad ideas 101-- learn from it, move on, and get yourself a new iPod. Hope this helps, Good luck. Cheers.

  • 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 AppleInsider.com, 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.

  • I have a 16GB iPhone 3G and my screen will not work. When I have my sim card inserted into the phone calls go through, but I take it out and they don't go through. It was fine one minute and then the screen flashed and now it will not work. any answers?

    I own a 16GB iPhone 3G. My father passed it down to me a year ago after he got the iPhone 4. I pressed the sleep/wake button on the top of the iPhone to check the time, and as I did so, the screen flashed on and off and now the screen won't work. Whenever I put my simcard in there calls will go through but I am unable to hear them, but if I take it out calls don't go through. I've tried charging it for a while, connecting to my laptop, holding the sleep/wake button and the home button for 10seconds to restore it, but nothing works. I've looked around and no-one'ed seemed to have this problem. I'd like to know what is wrong with my iPhone ASAP. thanks.

    First, update iTunes, then connect the phone to the computer and do a restore. This will also get your iOS up to date. Your phone should operate correctly after doing this, if not, you will most likely need to have the phone serviced or replaced.

  • 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.

  • The screen of my ipod touch is not working. it turned white with green bars. what shall i do? :(

    iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    All the troubleshooting steps in the above are likely to lead you to restoring the iPod. Follow the instructions in this procedure to the letter. Here they are, with emphasis on some easily overlooked requirements:
    Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
    Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.If you cannot turn off the device using the slider, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the device turns off, release only the Sleep/Wake button.
    Continue pressing and holding the Home button while you reconnect the USB cable to the device. The device should turn on.Note: If you see the "low battery" screen, let the device charge for at least ten minutes to ensure that the battery has some charge, and then start with step 2 again.
    Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen. When this screen appears (iTunes icon and USB connector) release the Home button.
    If necessary, open iTunes. You should see the "recovery mode" alert ("iTunes has detected a phone in recovery mode").
    Use iTunes to restore the device.
    If you do not see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, try these steps again. If you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen but the device does not appear in iTunes, see this article and its related links. 
    Select the iPod in iTunes and choose "restore from backup".
    If you still can't get it to work, you have done all you can and only Apple will be able to help.

  • The select with for all entries is not working correctly

    IF NOT i_ekko_ekpo[] IS INITIAL.
        SELECT ebeln

          SORT i_ekbe.
    I have a PO with 2 line items in i_ekko_ekpo. In EKBE, I have 49 recs for this PO and this select is returning only 13 recs.
    I tried by commenting EBELP and still the same result.

    Hi Sudhi, I added these now but still no charm
        SELECT ebeln
               INTO TABLE i_ekbe
               FROM ekbe
               FOR ALL ENTRIES IN i_ekko_ekpo

                 AND zekkn GE '00'
                 AND vgabe IN ('1','2').
    And as per your note: in the 13 entries, am having duplicate also. This is something weird for me now.
    Any more clues.

  • Is there a keyboard shortcut to launch firefox 3.6.3 with windows vista? Hot key (ctrl + alt + key) does not work.

    The hot key (ctrl + alt + key) does not work. This is in Windows Vista.

    Thank you Morbus and Cor-el, for your prompt replies. Here's what I did: I've placed the Firefox icon in the quick launch toolbar. So I right-click this firefox icon>Properties>Shortcut tab>in Shortcut Key field, add X (the word "None" changes to "ctrl + alt + X")>Apply>Okay>and that closes the dialog window.
    Then, to try the new launch short-cut, I press and hold down, in order, ctrl, then alt, then x (holding all three down) . . . and nothing launches.
    I thought this would do it! So any further thoughts would be a splendid help ---- many thanx!

  • IPhone 4s screen is completely black and does not work at all; has not been dropped. Any help?

    I opened up youTube using a shortcut from the Cocoppa app last night, and the screen froze, my home button would not work, so I locked it. The phone was charging at the time and nowhere near dead. After I did so, I pressed the lock and the home button [ not at the same time ] and the screen would not light up at all, it remained completely black. So, I unplugged it and plugged it back into the charger and it made the little sound it does when you do so, that told me it was not dead, and had not turned off. I held the lock button down to turn it off and swiped where the "slide to shut down" bar would normally be if my screen actually worked. It did nothing. My phone screen does not work at all now, even though it makes sounds such as Siri's little pinging noise when you hold down the home button. I am thoroughly confused and urgently need help to solve this problem.

    You have the accessibility VoiceOver feature turned on.
    Triple click the home button and try going to Settings>General>Accessibility and turn VoiceOver off. You may have to use three fingers to scroll the screen to get there. If problems see the following for how to turn off via iTunes:
