  1. Great information, but when I get to the settings tab, I only have speed and hardware tabs to choose from. Where’s the zoom?

  2. I changed the setting to fast and still, with every reboot, the zoom slider fails to work.

  3. Me too! I cannot FIND the zoom tabbing either! Tried looking online EVERYWHERE for help but I also only have the speed and hardware tabs!
