    double tap zoom in IE

    Hello, to enable/disable double tap zoom in browser (IE) just create this registry REG_SZ and set what you want:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\]

    "DoubleTapZoom"="yes" or "no"

    Click image for larger version

    Can be done in HKCU if you want.

    ledjam38, thanks for the detail but it seems that this no longer applies since the release of pro, and you please update, I'd really like to disable this, I have a 3rd party app which is set to initiate at double click but it can't because the stupid zoom.

    If you can find out how to disable Double-Tap to zoom in IE (both desktop and metro mode) I'd be eternally grateful. We need to be able to double click in IE on an app in order to open special context menus.

This is a real annoyance when I'm using pretty much anything - for example, I'm trying to write a book and 80% of my time I'm zooming in or out rather than getting actual...

Semantic zoom in Windows 8
I heard that Windows 8 includes a new feature called Semantic zoom. Is it possible to play with this feature if I install Windows 8 Ultimate and by using mouse keys. I want to know whether this zoom feature only works with touch devices.
