I can't work in visual studio on my laptop without this extension. Trackpad + automatic zoom is really really annoying.

Thank you, thank you! This was driving me crazy. I'm running VS on my Mac via Parallels and I was constantly flicking this condition unintentionally with the touch mouse.

Works great in Visual Studio 2015. This solved one of my biggest annoyances with using VS under Parallels on a Mac with an Apple mouse. You rock!

Simple plugin to get rid of what has to be the most annoying "feature" ever. Thanks!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Works like a charm!

EDIT: And once again I thank you for the 2013 version :)

I too was waiting for the VS2013 version. Thank you very much.

I was tempted to install a similar utility that substitutes "ctrl-mouse wheel" with a "page down" function but I figured that would be as annoying as the "zoom".

When is the VS2013 compatible version coming out ?

Thank you, waiting to get the VS2013 compatible version :)

Did you get a chance to release the VS 2013 compatible version ?

  • VS 2013 Express for web

    • Hi,
      This looks great as I am always accidently zooming in!
      I tried to run it on my windows 8 machine with VS Express 2013 for Web, but it says it won't work on any installed versions.
      Will it work on any express versions or just the pro versions. If so is there a way I can get it to work?
      Many Thanks,
    • Sadly, no – Visual Studio Express editions don't allow extensions :( And they haven't yet added an option to disable it:
    • Oh well! Thanks for letting me know
  • Not Working

    • I using this on windows 8. This extension installed in visual studio 2012. But Not working in IE. Is there anything specific I need to do to make it work in IE10?
    • Sorry, it's only an extension for Visual Studio, it doesn't work anywhere else.
  • VS 2012

    • Any chance that you can upload this extension for VS 2012 RC?  The default behavior has been driving me crazy since the beta.
    • I don't know if/when I'll get around to updating it. You can enable it manually:
      1) Download the extension
      2) Change the file extension to .zip and unzip the contents
      3) Modify the extension.vsixmanifest, adding a new entry under the SupportedProducts group:
        <!-- VS10.0 is here, below it add: -->
        <VisualStudio Version="11.0">
      4) Add everything back to a .zip file, change the extension to .vsix, and open it from explorer
    • Thanks, those instructions worked perfectly for VS 2013 too!
      However, I'm sure 10K+ people would love to have an "official" update, if you can find the time.  Thanks for this awesome utility.  It's a time saver :)
    • You're awesome, thanks for 1.3.
    • Very welcome :) Sorry it took so long!
