Hey,

I have been looking all over and can't seem to find a way (normal or a reg edit) to change the default Zoom In/Out in Windows 7 From the Windows key plus the +/- key to something more easy to access like Windows key plus MouseUp/Down.

I even tried Autohotkey but it does not recognize MouseUp/MouseDown.

If anyone can point me in the right direction I would very much appreciate it.

[TROLL MODE ON]I'm afraid windows seven is NOT Ubuntu linux, you don't get to customize your OS as much as you want, you'll have to deal with it :nutkick:[TROLL MODE OFF]

Edit: No one has any ideas? :/
The program AllKeys Macro was close to working, it will not accept a modifier as a macro key though. This breaks the scroll wheel.


Isn't just CTRL+Mouse Wheel Up/Down?
No. Thats to zoom in on a webpage. Press Windows key plus - or + to see what I am talking about.

You will notice the first hit I referenced above, you cannot script the scrollwheel for whatever reason. Thanks for spending 15 sec making your google search annoying though even though the info was worthless.
