How can I prevent  Windows 7  from automatically changing  my font size?

One of my problems is  sometimes just a touch of the mouse pad or key changes the font size and screen display of the page I am viewing. I then need to do a  CTRL- or a CTRL + to decrease or increase the  font size that was arbitrarily changed by Windows. How can I set the default so that Windows does not do it automatically?

Here is a solution for your problem. All you need to do is edit/create the registry key found at the URL below.

Start Regedit.exe and navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Zoom

If the Zoom key doesn’t exist by default, create one manually.

Create a new DWORD (32 bit) value named ZoomDisabled

Double-click ZoomDisabled and set its data to 1

Exit the Registry Editor
