    Hey as per you query let me tell you that this is possible with the help of the Synaptic setting. I am not sure about this but i think that the setting for the mouse or touchpad of Acer device is dependent on the Synaptic setting. So asking you for the same look for the synaptic setting and see whether it is having the feature like disabling the Zoom or not.

    For that you have to get into the Control panel and the look for the Mouse and the go to the device setting where the list of the Touchpad will appear. Then there will be setting for the same will appear you work on the same and get rid of this issue by selecting the Zoom disable option. So try this out and let me know whether the issue got resolved or not .

    If you are having the problem with the Zooming of the mouse then let me tell you that you don't have to worry about this more as you can take help of then Synaptic t disable the same. Just right click on the System Tray synaptic and then select the Properties from the Context menu. Now go to the Pinch and then untick the same which will disable the Zooming.
