    Hi all. I'm asking this for a friend, not for myself. you know those gestures of pinch in/out to resize desktop icons? My friend messed around with his mac (system prefs or something, not too sure what) and now it's disabled. Anyone know how to solve this?

    Adjustments can be made in System preferences>Trackpad

    There are many check boxes to set up the behavior of the trackpad. Check the ones you want.

    If you only want to adjust the dock:
    - System Preferences
    - Choose Dock (top row)
    - make adjustments

    Go to the desktop, then Finder --> Preferences --> Advanced

    Then check zoom using trackpad.

    Ignore all the posts above. This is the right way to do what you want.
