Internet Explorer 11 has an auto zoom feature that chooses different zoom scales based on the size screen you're using.  Is there any way to disable this feature?  I want to set it to default to 100%, regardless of screen size.

This property can be set by the page being viewed (to support mobile devices). I do not see this happening on my desktop IE11, though.

In any event, the zoom factor cannot be set or disabled in IE11.

Windows Key + r
Type: regedit
Navigate: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Zoom
ZoomDisabled to turn on change from 0 to 1
ZoomFactor:

100% = 13880 hexadecimal
125% = 186a0

You can change the Zoom option by right-click on gear on the top left in Internet Explorer ======> left-click "Status Bar".

Now Zoom option is located at the bottom of Internet Explorer. When you change the view and F5 to refresh the entry in registry editor it will provide the hexadecimal for each option

In IE11, you can change the options as you showed but it does not stick on my IE11.

I will have to test the registry setting when I get a chance.
