OS X Gestures Stopped Working!!

Its unexplainable and has been occurring since the first introduction of Gestures into OS X in 2005 where two-finger scrolling was first debut to the world.

Once in a while.

Without warning. Explanation.

Gestures just suddenly stop working.

The fix?

  • Hold down CMD + Option + ESC to summon the Force Quit window;
  • Select Finder from the list of running applications (Finder will always be on the list as it is a system application that can never be terminated);
  • Click Relaunch


Viola! Gestures should be back and working again.

No muss, no fuss and no need to logout or restart OS X.
