    Chrome - Touchpad causes random zooming and scroll jumping

    Hi all,

    I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro laptop, running Windows 8.1 and I use Chrome, currently on Beta and Canary builds. Because the 3800x1800 resolution is mostly problematic in Windows, I have it set to 1920x1080.

    In Chrome, I use the touchpad to two-finger scroll up and and webpages. This works, except every time I put two fingers to the touchpad I see a faint animation of a square zooming in... and then randomly, every so often, pages zoom way in... in such a way that changing zoom levels with CTRL++ and CTRL+- doesn't change it. The ONLY way I have found to zoom back out is to actually do a pinch gesture on the touchscreen.

    I know you can disable pinchzoom in Chrome, but the problem with that is, that I WANT that to work when I use the touchscreen.

    I have disabled pinch gestures on the touchpad itself.

    This is driving me nuts and I can't figure out what I am doing on the touchpad to cause the zooming. It also randomly scrolls ALL the way down a page.

    This might help.

    I've asked this in Chrome support but am not getting anything useful there.

    Does the issue exist when using IE ?

    Recommend you contact Lenovo customer support or look thru user's guide if available. May have to do with your preferred resolution setting. Another thought is to download the basic Chrome instead of Beta and Canary.
