How To: Use three-finger gesture in virtual machines

8 users found this article helpful


I cannot use horizontal 3-finger scroll inside the virtual machine. For example, I cannot swipe between the web pages in Internet Explorer.


"Scroll left or right with two fingers" is selected in System Preferences > Trackpad as a default way of swiping between pages.


  1. Go to System Preferences > Trackpad > More gestures
  2. Select Swipe with two or three fingers or Swipe with three fingers under the Swipe between pages option.
    Note: These changes will deactivate the "Three finger drag" feature
