First of all - welcome to BC !


Is your mouse wheel zooming in everything ?  The reason I ask is that it is meant to zoom in graphics type applications - image viewers, Google Earth, drawing packages, and to scroll in text type applications - such as Word, most web pages and so on. Very flexible little beasts mice !


If it is zooming all the time it is likely to be either a mouse driver problem or a faulty mouse. The easiest way to establish if there is a problem with a mouse is try a different. Just borrow one. But get back to us.

If this is happening while in a browser it may be because your Ctrl key is stuck. Pressing Ctrl while using the scroll wheel causes zoom in and out on firefox and also Chrome. Tap on the Ctrl key a few times and see if that solves the problem.
