Is it possible to enable multitouch gestures like pinch to zoom and 3 finger gestures?

It's a dell XPS 9343 2015. I can't tell what type of trackpad I've got, but I attached a copy of my IOREG if that would help?

Your trackpad is Synaptics. You can enable three finger swipes in SysPrefs->Keyboard->Keyboard shortcuts. Do the swipe instead of hitting keys. There are other multi-finger gestures implemented as well (two-finger scroll, two-finger tap, etc.).

Thanks. I tried that, nut don't seem to have the option to swipe.

I attached a screen grab.

No option. Do the swipe instead of hitting keys when you go to assign a function to a keystroke.

Thank you. That worked great. The one gesture that I can't figure out is the 2 finger swipe forward/back in safari. I can't seem to see where that setting is located.

One other question:

My trackpad seems v sensitive and often registers a 'tap to click' unintentionally. I recall reading a post somewhere on modifying sensitivity, but I cannot seem to find it again.

Thanks again.

Two finger swipes are not implemented.

You can change FingerZ.

I was looking for solutions for tap to click extreme sensitivity (my cursor jumps around too much if I start to write in the middle of the keyboard) and found this old message. I'm not sure what you meant with FingerZ?
