    Hello there Kayrakaye,


    It sounds like the Pinch and Zoom checkbox might be unchecked in the System Preferences.

    Check this out from the article Mac Basics: Set your preferences found here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2490.

    Customize your trackpad

    Trackpad preferences lets you control the clicking, scrolling, zooming, and gestures of your trackpad.


    1. Open System Preferences.
    2. Choose View > Trackpad, or click Trackpad.
    3. To change your tracking speed and click settings, click the Point & Click tab. Then, move the Tracking slider to adjust how fast the arrow moves across your screen; move it left to slow it down, or right to speed it up. You can also enable secondary-click by selecting the "Secondary click" checkbox. You can then click using two fingers to secondary-click. The secondary-click can be used to display shortcut (contextual) menus for an application.
    4. To change your scroll and zoom settings, click the Scroll & Zoom tab. You can enable and disable scroll and zoom gestures.

    All the best,
