Multi-Touch Gestures

How to navigate the desktop faster with your computer's touchpad or touchscreen.

Touch gestures are enabled out of the box to make moving between your apps and workspaces even quicker and easier. They work on computers with touchpads and touchscreens that support multi-touch.

  • Swipe 3 fingers up to open the activities overview and instantly see every app running on your workspaces.
  • Swipe 3 fingers left or right to switch between workspaces.
  • Pinch with 2 fingers to zoom in and out of content. This works in the Document Viewer app, as well as the Firefox and Google Chrome / Chromium web browsers.
