My Android Tablet has lost pinch zoom

How do I switch the Pinch facility ON. My Lenovo 10 seems to have lost the ability and I can not find now way to reactivate it. The pinch zoom functions correctly with pictures/photos and gmail text but nothing else. The facility was working up to about 2 weeks ago.

Do you have Settings - Accessability - Magnification gestures? If so make sure that the feature is not disabled.

Sometimes just powering off and then on again seems to help.

Thank you Difarn, that over comes part of the problem, but before it stopped working just spreading two fingers or pinching did the same but more efficiently, any further ideas?

Do you have a "Home Screen Mode" ? Settings - Home Screen - Change Home Screen Mode - if it is on Easy Mode change it to Standard.

Cannot find Home Screen Mode, all I can find it settings, accessibility, magnification gestures which I have set to on, but this does not give the desired result as experienced about 3 weeks ago. click here

What does it say under Gestures and Display?

Thank you for your reply here are the screens for Display and Gestures, but there is no setting for Display & Gestures. I do not even understand the Gestures screen and have never changed it! click here

As you say there is no obious Home Screen Mode. The Gestures option allows you to personalise functions relating to how the screen operates.

Have you had a recent OS update? It may help if you do a factory reset - you can google how to do that for your device. Of course you will lose any data and settings.

Have you tried the Lenovo site where there is a facility to chat on-line to an advisor? If you hover your cursor over contact to right a drop-down box will appear with a "chat now" option.

I am not aware of recent updates. I may have to try a factory reset, but this would mean starting afresh installing apps, etc. so probably would not be worth while given the hassle for such little gain. I will have a go at the chat line when they are back on line, presumably Monday am.
