Mac Multi-Touch Gestures
Multitouch gestures let you use several fingers to do cool stuff on Mac Laptops. Not all Macs can perform these gestures, so if it doesn’t work, your laptop may not be new enough to support the gestures.
|2-Finger Drag Up/Down/Left/Right||Scroll Up/Down/Left/Right|
|2-Finger Click||Equivalent to a Right-Click or Ctrl-Click|
|Hold Control while 2-Finger Dragging Up/Down||Zoom In/Out on the Screen|
The Multi-touch Gestures below are supported on newer laptops such as the MacBook Air as well as Unibody MacBook and MacBook Pros (and the previous generation of MacBook Pros). Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard adds 4 finger gestures to older Macs that previously had only supported the 3 finger gestures.
