How to Zoom In and Out in Premiere Pro's Timeline on Windows like on Mac

Hello, I use a MacBook to video edit in Premiere Pro and one feature I like is zooming in and out in the Timeline using the touchpad. It makes it easy to naviagte inside the Timeline to see the entire project and get up close to make refined edits. 

 

Recently I've also been using Windows to video edit and when I try the same gesture on the touchpad, nothing happens. I did find holding the 'Alt' key while scrolling up/down or left/right on the touchpad or mouse will do the zoom gesture I wanted, but is there a way in settings to change it so I don't have to rely on using the 'Alt' key to perform the same gesture like on a Mac? Perhaps shortcut keys are the only option?

 

Any feedback would be appreciated as I'm sure many Windows users may have the same issue.

Hello,

Could you please let me know which touchpad you are using?

Additionally, you can refer to the following link for potential assistance: Adobe Premiere Pro Touch and Gesture Controls.

Thank you.

Can you check which version you have, 

Windows:

  1. Open Premiere Pro.
  2. Click on the Help menu at the top of the screen.
  3. Select "About Premiere Pro" from the dropdown menu.
  4. A pop-up window will display the Premiere Pro version and build number at the top, similar to the example shown.

 

Please take a look at this link as well. It may contain information related to adjusting touchpad settings on a Dell laptop, specifically instructions for disabling or enabling the touchpad: Disabling or Enabling the Touchpad on a Dell Laptop
