I play a lot of Lexulous, an idiosyncratic form of Scrabble, on Facebook. The grid has zoomed leaving no white space at all to the left of the screen. I've watched the Trackpad videos, assuming I'd inadvertently performed a gesture to cause this. The upshot is I seem not to have zoom control via the Trackpad.

Does anyone have any ideas, please?

    Hold the Control key while scrolling.
    or use Command-Option-Minus or Command-Option-Plus ⌘⌥- ⌘⌥+ (No Shift key)
    The settings are in the "Zoom" section of the "Seeing" tab of "Universal Access" system preference.

    Try placing 2 fingers on the trackpad and pinching them closer together.
