    I have a macbook pro (got it june 2008) and it has a multi touch track pad but i can't en large or make my desktop icons smaller.:confused: The multitouch is working fine with enlarging photos in preview and enlarging and making fonts smaller on websites and stuff, it's working perfectly except when i want to make my desktop or finder icons smaller o bigger. Help Guys I'm going nuts!!!

    In Leopard the pixel / icon zoom option was put under Finder Preferences > Advanced.
    In SL the option is under System Prefs > Trackpad > Pinch open & Close.

    I don't think the trackpad can do that. You can change icon size under View -> Show View Options, though.

    Or if you are on Snow Leopard, you can chance icon sizes in Finder windows on the bottom right of the window.
