Similarly, it is asked, how do I stop my scroll from zooming?

Double-click either "Gesture Settings" or "Scrolling and Zoom," depending on your laptop and touchpad manufacturer. Click the box next to "Enable" under "Zoom" to remove the check and disable the zoom feature.

Secondly, how do I stop my laptop from zooming in and out? For laptops with the Cypress touchpad driver, search for "mouse" from the Start menu and open the Mouse Properties window as before. Next, click the Cypress TrackPad tab and click the link, "Click to Change Cypress TrackPad Settings." Then click on the 2-Finger Gestures tab and uncheck the box labeled Zoom In/Out.

In this regard, when I use the scroll wheel it zooms?

As it turns out, one of the most common causes that will trigger this kind of behavior is a stuck CTRL-key. If you didn't know, if you press any of the CTRL keys and scroll upwards or downwards, the mouse's scroll will produce zooming.

Why does Chrome zoom on scroll?

Mouse wheel scroll causes zoom in/out in Google Chrome. When scrolling using the mouse wheel scroll in Google Chrome, there is about 25% chance it would zoom in/out as if I have pressed the Ctrl key. Disabling my mouse gesture extension reduces the chance to only about 2%.
