Scrolling Problem in Chrome and Edge

Dear Computer Lady,

I have a new HP Pavilion laptop with Windows 10. I use Google Chrome as well as Microsoft Edge. My problem is that the zoom keeps changing in both programs. What can I do to set the zoom so that it stops changing?


Hi Carole,

I’m guessing that your zoom is changing because you are brushing against part of the touchpad with your wrists as you type or scroll.

Try covering the touchpad and see if that makes a difference.

    Hello ! I also have the same issue with text size on Chrome. And I know I don’t touch the pad. Thank you for all your great info.
