How to use gestures to pan AND zoom, not working in any adobe programs. (Windows 10)

On my MacBook I am able to use gestures in all of my adobe progams to pan, scroll, rotate, and pinch to zoom. With my new job I have to use their computers with Windows 10, I have a high precision touchpad and windows gestures enabled on the computer. Pan, scroll, zoom and all of the gestures work in every other program on the computer (such as in excel or chrome), but when trying to use these gestures in any of my adobe progams (really the only place I need them and only reason I purchased a quality trackpad to use) they do not work. In PS I can either have the gestures turned on to pan/scroll but pinch to zoom does not work and just pans, or I can turn on the scroll to zoom feature, which then allows me to zoom, but takes away the ability to pan/scroll. So this is not a solution I am happy with since I need to have both features work at the same time to work efficiently. 

 

 

How do I get my Adobe programs (Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator) to allow me to pan/scroll AND zoom with my trackpad/gestures? I see that other people have posted versions of this question for a few years now, and I can't imagine why adobe would make a change like this to make these programs more difficult to work in when every other program seems to work fine with these gestures, and they work fine on a MacBook. There must be a way to make both features work at the same time?

Unfortunately, there's no "solution" to the problem unless some third party has found a way to patch the software. Despite the fact that every other program seems to support this functinoality nearly flawlessly, Adobe continues to insist that the system events available to them are simply too unreliable. Ironic that the alleged reason for not wanting to cripple the software's usability is crippling the software's usability isn't it?
