    Disabling Zoom


    I have a notebook with a touchscreen. I really want to disable the zoom option, as every time I go to use the mouse I zoom in. 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 writing done. Same with browsing the net. Also, I seem to be swiping things away while i'm looking at them, so I'm just presented with my desktop again. Not sure what I could be doing wrong here, but if someone can tell me how to disable zoom, that would be great. Can seem to find it under the mouse options.

    Thanks

    Any ideas? I consider my machine virtually unusable until I get this sorted.

    Thanks
