Disable Touchpad Pinch to Zoom on Windows 10

I’ve been going nuts with my new Lenovo Yoga 920 latop due to the touch pad zoom sensitivity. I love the laptop but every time I’m scrolling a page the page zooms in and out like crazy. I kept reading online that there is a Device Settings tab in the additional mouse settings panel, but my copy of Windows 10 Pro with latest patches did not have such a tab.

Instead I found you could open the registry editor and navigate to:


Once there look for the ZoomEnabled REG_DWORD and change it from 1 to 0.

You may or may not need to reboot, but pinch to zoom will be gone. Some users may like pinch to zoom, and on MacBooks I found it usable, but the Lenovo Yoga 920 was just way too sensitive to multi-touch pinch gestures.

NOTE: This will NOT disable pinch to zoom on your touch screen, which I like. If I need to pinch to zoom I just use the touch screen.
