    How do i disable pinch zoom feature on win8 touchscreen PC


    Hello hopefully someone can help me figure out how to disable the pinch to zoom gesture on my windows 8.1 lenovo touch screen desktop. I haven't been able to find a option to do so with windows 8. In windows 7 i disabled the pinch zoom feature using flicks but there is no such option for windows 8.

    For me, on my ASUS laptop, its in the ASUS Smart Gesture Utility settings menu. I only have a touch pad though, no touch screen. Does your Lenovo have a similar utility?
