    Ah, I see, sorry Stephen, my bad, not yours, I thought you had three

    Good question, but I'm not sure I can answer it with how it works with a 
laptop. But if you have a wheel mouse at work, then just click the wheel 
once and roll it in and out for zooming, and just pan around with the mouse. 
If it isn't a wheel mouse, I think you just hold down the right button iirc.
