Both my macs have been having this issue with the latest releases of MacOS:
- Quick Look stops working randomly and Finder needs to be relaunched.
- Pinch-to-zoom feature stops working with the trackpad (external or integrated) and I need to go to
settings > trackpad > scroll & zoomand re-enable it.
I made a Quick Action using Automator that when I click a keyboard shortcut, it will restart the Finder via Terminal.
killall Finder and it works great.
Then, I was trying to add a command to restart the P-T-Z functionality as well, but I can't find it.
After doing research online, I tried the following options with no luck:
(saw it somewhere saying that it would do the trick)
defaults write com.apple.AppleMultitouchTrackpad USBMouseStopsTrackpad 1 defaults write com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.trackpad USBMouseStopsTrackpad 1 defaults write com.apple.AppleMultitouchTrackpad USBMouseStopsTrackpad 0 defaults write com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.trackpad USBMouseStopsTrackpad 0
(supposedly restarts the trackpad, but didn't work)
Does anybody know what the right command would be to achieve this goal?
Edit: I want to clarify that I've also been doing research on the bugs per se. Trying to find the root problem, but I had no luck with that either.
It's been happening to both my old MBP and my new iMac. So I think that these are definitely bugs with the OS.
I've read about other users having the same issues, and the common solution is just to manually restart Finder or the Zoom gesture. So that's why I'm looking for a solution that will make this manual process less annoying while Apple works on fixing them.
