How To Stop Google Chrome From Zooming In And Out

Have you ever been frustrated by your Google Chrome browser zooming in and out without your input? Not to worry! In this blog post, we will guide you through an easy process to turn off the automatic zoom feature in Google Chrome. Let’s begin.

Disable the Zoom Function Using the Chrome Menu

The most straightforward way to stop Google Chrome from zooming in and out is by utilizing Chrome’s built-in menu. Here are the steps:

  • Open your Google Chrome browser.
  • Click on the three vertical dots located at the top right corner of the browser. This will open the Chrome menu.
  • Hover over “settings“.
  • On the left side of the settings page, click on “Appearance“.
  • In the Appearance section, you will find the “Page zoom” option. Set it to 100%.

This should disable the automatic zoom function in Google Chrome. However, if you are still experiencing issues, you might want to consider disabling the pinch zoom feature on your device.

Disable Pinch Zoom Feature on Touchscreen Devices

If you’re using a touchscreen device, often the zooming issue is due to the pinch zoom feature. Here’s how you can disable it:

  • Go to the control panel of your device.
  • Click on “Hardware and Sound“.
  • Under “Devices and Printers“, click on “Mouse“.
  • In the Mouse Properties window, go to the “Device Settings” or “Touchpad” tab.
  • Find the option that controls the pinch zoom feature and uncheck it.
  • Hit “Apply” and then “OK“.

By following these steps, the pinch zoom feature should now be disabled, helping to prevent your browser from zooming in and out without your command.


Remember, these steps will only disable the automatic zoom function on Google Chrome, and you can still zoom in and out manually if needed. If you wish to revert back to the previous setting, simply follow the steps above and re-enable the zoom function or pinch zoom feature. We hope that this guide has helped you to control your Google Chrome zoom settings. Enjoy your seamless browsing!
