Disable the mouse wheel and the zooming function along with it so that you no longer trigger it accidentally using this lightweight application
Similarly to right and left click, scrolling is an important function performed with your mouse. Without denying that it is useful when browsing the web or reading, for instance, there are times when the scroll wheel does not work properly, can be distracting or simply not required.
As the name implies, No Mouse Wheel Zoom is a tool designed to disable the scrolling function and make browsing the web more enjoyable.
Works quietly in the background and does not need any configuration
The app is portable, so you can start using it as soon as you decompress the archive. It is worth mentioning that the tool does not have an interface, but rather you can access it from the System Tray where you can pause it any time.
According to the developer, you can configure the utility to disable the mouse wheel for specific programs that you may be using and where the function may get in the way. Therefore, open the MWNoZoom.ini file and add the class name so that scrolling is blocked for the related function. In case the method does not seem to work, then you should activate the Block in all Windows feature.
A simple and straightforward tool that disables the mouse scrolling function
The application mainly addresses users who work with browsers and want to avoid all the nuisance by pressing the Control key along with the mouse wheel or unintentionally triggering the touchpad-two-finger on a laptop. Although you can find add-ons to disable the zoom function on the popular browsers, it may not work for users who work with multiple browsers or who prefer to disable the zoom function when working with Microsoft Office or Notepad++.
In the eventuality that scrolling is interfering with your work at the computer or distracting you from the project you are currently working on, then you can consider using No Mouse Wheel Zoom to disable the scrolling and/or zooming feature.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used No Mouse Wheel Zoom and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
