I disable that too, since I don't use that gesture either.I also change the default direction for swiping vertically.Since I don't use Google Maps all that often on my laptop, zoom is out.
The first is the nuclear option where it just stops working, which is uncommon but can happen after a software update.
To do so, search for Device Manager, open it, go to Mice and other pointing devices, and find your touchpad (mine is labeled HID-compliant mouse, but yours may be named something else).
Right-click on your touchpad and click Update Driver Software.
So, the odds are your touchpad driver is current and not the source of your touchpad problems.
Still, it's worth checking if your touchpad is acting up.
Thankfully, Windows 10 offers a number of settings to fine tune how your touchpad reacts to your clicks, taps and swipes. On the Mouse Properties windows, click the Pointers Options tab and play around with the slider for Select a pointer speed until you find a speed you can work with.
