Does Thunderbird 7.0 have mouse wheel Zoom In/Out feature?

Q: Does Thunderbird 7.0 have mouse wheel Zoom In/Out feature?

Looked in the options section and could not find any setting that will allow to Zoom In/Out an email using the mouse wheel like Mozilla browser allows.

Is there a hidden setting I can tweak or an Add-on that will allow such feature?

Preferred Solution: Does Thunderbird 7.0 have mouse wheel Zoom In/Out feature?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Does Thunderbird 7.0 have mouse wheel Zoom In/Out feature?

Not *exactly* what you want but you can press Ctrl+"+" or "-" too.

I have 2 computers. Both run Win XP Pro Sp3 with Outlook Express.

Computer "A", using Outlook Express, I can hold down Ctrl and zoom in and out of the message using the mouse wheel.

Computer "B", using Outlook Express, Holding Ctrl, the mouse wheel does NOT zoom. I have switched mice and the results are the same.

Since both computers are more or less the same, there must be a setting on one of them that is allowing mouse wheel zoom, and it is not checked on the other. I have spent hours checking the settings on each machine but have not found it.
Thanks for helping.....

A:Mouse wheel zoom in Outlook Express

Go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In the Device Manager Open Mice and other pointing devices. Right click your Mouse there and choose Properties/Driver tab. Make sure the driver is the same on both computers. If it is different, try downloading an updated driver for the mouse.

Hi Everyone!

Firstly I would like to say I love this forum, and would like to thank everyone who has contributed to both the general forum content and the tutorials. Strong work!!

I wish to totally remove the CTRL & Mouse Wheel/Scroll facility from all applications. I am aware you can do this in some programs individually, but sadly not all have this facility.

My Logitech MX Performance mouse is amazing, especially the free-wheel!! Sadly the majority of programs I use do not appreciate this feature, especially when using CTRL & C to, oh wait, your not copying, your magnifying to 300%.... Thanks!!

Any thoughts, ideas and methods via any means necessary would be very much appreciated

A:Totally remove CTRL & Mouse Wheel zoom from all applications

I only have a standard mouse.

Doesn't the Logitech MX Performance mouse have settings in the Control Panel (separate item or added to the Mouse settings) that you can adjust?

So apparently Microsoft decided to change the Mouse Wheel behavior in the Photos App from Scrolling through a Gallery to Zooming the current Image which I certainly do not like as I'm now ALSO required to use the Keyboard in order to actually navigate Images which is kind of a huge pain in the ass when compared to just using the Mouse like before.

Is there a way of reverting it back or change between settings using something like a registry hack?
The Photos App Settings do not appear to have such a feature >_>

Hey, I just upgraded to Office 2003 Pro and can no longer use the mouse wheel to zoom in and out in Word. That option is not available in my Word 2003. I went to Tools>Options>General as suggested but it is nowhere to be found. It is an available option in Excel 2003. I checked it there, but that did not affect Word. Online I can find no work around. How can I get it back? It has been a lifesaver for someone who needs to increase text size often. I have already adjusted general font sizes in both Display in Control Panel and the Accessibility Wizard. Thanks.

On windows 7 laptop we have  has zoom feature on bottom of page, print size never changes. On this desktop window 7 zoom is on tool bar print size changes every time you go to another page.Anyway to keep it all the same, this desktop is new,mabee something has to be set. Thanks, Paul


First of all - Welcome to BC !
Can you give some details of these computers - make, model and so on - it gives us something to go on.
When you say 'the bottom of the page', do you mean the task bar on the desktop, or at the bottom inside one application or another?  I am not familiar with a zoom control on the task bar but a lot of applications, from image viewers through graphics software to MS Office, have a zoom function. But this almost always uniformly expands or shrinks the complete page, text and everything included. And, more to the point, the zoom control goes wherever the designer of the software decided to put it.

Recently purchased an Acer 5733.

Why will my new higher zoom setting not remain as such, until I wish to reset.

It seems erratic from one web page to another, and often automatically returns to 100%.

Sometimes when I return to previous viewed web pages, the higher setting will have remained.

If I set at 125% I want it to stay there!!

I bought a E520. I am not liking the touchpad on this thing. It hangs up and does not respond a lot of times. The biggest thing that irks me is that my screen will zoom in and out when I run my finger along the touchpad or when tapping it. I know you can use the "pinch" with two fingers to zoom in and out but mine will zoom with just a tap of one finger. Someone must know how to disable the zoom feature. Can you describe in detail to me how to do that? I called Lenovo support about it and the guy said it might be a software or hardware problem and told me to take it into a repair facility. There must be a way in settings to turn that off. I just want the touchpad to work normally, as in move the cursor around.. thats it, nothing more. Can someone help me with this??

Is there any movie players that let you zoom while its in full screen, i know many dvd players have a ZOOM feature, and i was wondering if any movie players on pc's do, because i hate letterbox/black bars!

let me know!

A:zoom feature in movie player??

because i hate letterbox/black bars!
Click to expand...

I believe you're talking about aspect ratio, not zoom. Most players have a place to set the aspect ratio, and some codecs have aspect ratio settings. On standard TV's and monitors, generally you use a 4:3 aspect ratio, on widescreens generally you use 16:9.
There are also different stretch settings offered by different software packages. Cyberlink PowerDVD offers CLPV stretching while other software packages have different pixel stretching or doubling techniques, these stretching techniques can have a large impact on the video viewing quality.

I've been using XP Pro for a few years now. However, on my last re-install I left off ACDSee and was just going to use XP's own settings for viewing photos. I'm now using SP2.

I was certain that in the 'filmstrip' setting for photos there was a 'Zoom IN/OUT' option - am I wrong? I only have 4 buttons for:-

Previous Image
Next Image
Rotate Clockwise
Rotate Counter Clockwise

I'm using TweakUI + TweakXP Pro 4, I've checked everywhere but I can't find anywhere that the zoom option has been unchecked? Is it there or can I enable it somehow?


A:Zoom feature in 'Filmstrip' of My Pictures?

I found this site:-


It states here that:-

Another new WindowsXP applet is the Picture & Fax Viewer. To view files as you would in a slide show, just right-click on any graphics file and select "Preview". The Viewer applet will open and the controls at the bottom allow you to navigate, zoom, copy, etc. This is a very quick and useful feature that is always available in Windows Explorer.

Sure enough, all the icons that I'm sure were always there appear in this window *but* I would like them there ALL the time when viewing in filmstrip mode - is it something simple I'm overlooking here?

I have an HP dv3 laptop with a synaptics touchpad. Swiping the left edge of the touch pad causes programs which have a zoom capability to zoom in and out. There is no documentation from HP or Synaptics or Microsoft that I have been able to find which even acknowledges that this feature even exists. I would like to turn the feature off because I keep activating it by accident, but I cannot find a setting anywhere. Perhaps there is a registry setting I can change?

A:Want to disable left edge zoom feature

Some additional information: the pointer becomes the crossed lines with arrows that I associate with Move during the swipe and then after the release the shrinking circle occurs as if I had pressed the CTRL key to locate the cursor. The advertised way of doing a zoom with the keypad is to hold the CTRL key and swipe the right edge.

I got an optical mouse with a scroll wheel for Christmas last year and the scroll wheel won't work on anything (IE, Compuserve, Netscape).
It has no brand name anywhere on the mouse so I can't look for a new driver. It came from Office Depot and it has no disk/CD. When I plugged it in it did not load anything else and I tried Add/Remove Hardware, but it didn't find anything new. Is there anything else I can do?

My problem is that occasionally, when I click or scroll my mouse, my computer acts as though the "CTRL" button is being held down. This problem will occur for a few minutes, then it will go back to normal, then become a problem again. So what happens is all of a sudden I will be scrolling my mouse all the font on the screen will increase or decrease or it will scroll forward and backwards between previously viewed webpages. Also when this is happening, my typing will be messed up as well. If I were to hit the "p," the print menue would pop up. It will also type in all caps and if I try to type a "7" for example, it will come up as an "&." And when I click the mouse in a paragraph of text online, it will just highlight the entire paragraph of text. I don't know if this will help but it usually happens right after the top bar of my web browser (the one with the maximize, minimize, and close window button) goes light grey. Normally, when you are at a web page, this is a dark grey and if you get a pop up, the background window will go to a light grey color. So this problem usually happens when my window acts as though there was a pop up, but their really wasn't. I had this problem a couple weeks ago and I had installed a pop up blocker a couple days before that. I uninstalled this blocker and my computer had been fine for the last couple of weeks. Now all of a sudden it is doing it again. I have not downloaded any pop up block... Read more

A:Mouse Wheel and Clicking the Mouse makes my screen go wacky!

Keyboards are very cheap, try a new one and save yourself lots of grief. Chances are the matrix circuit has some foreign goop on it that's conducting just well enough to make certain keys seem to be pushed, especially under varying humidity conditions.

The mouse is only doing what mice do when the certain keys are depressed so it's probably not at fault.

You could try blowing the keyboard out with compressed air but I wouldn't waste too much time on such a low dollar item.

Good luck.

My mouse wheel doesn't work in IE 6.0 (on WinXP) unless the mouse cursor is actually over the window. When the mouse is over the window, it scrolls normally, but when it's off (even if IE is still the active application), it doesn't scroll. My mouse wheel scrolls other programs even if the mouse cursor isn't actually over the window (like Word), so why doesn't it work for IE? Any way to turn this on? I don't have anything like X-Active turned on or anything like that. It's not a serious problem, but it is kind of annoying, so if anyone knows the answer, please let me know, thanks.

Irfanview had this feature but its not there anymore. Or maybe I am not able to find it.

I'm not sure if this problem is related to my Firefox and Thunderbird or Win10.
The wheel on my mouse acts normally on other applications, but in Firefox or my emails through Thunderbird, turning the wheel jumps forward a screenful at a time rather than a controlled scroll. I've tried a different mouse with the same result.

My wife has an almost identical computer, the same version of Windows, Firefox and Thunderbird and doesn't have the problem.

I've tried tweaking the Firefox Options, but can't find a solution.

Anyone got any ideas on this? I'd appreciate suggestions.

I have a Logitech USB optical mouse and all of a sudden the wheel stopeed working. it was working fine one moment and then it wasn't. Any suggestions?

A:USB mouse wheel not working

go into the mouse settings and change the action of the wheel to see if it works for a different action, if it does reselect your original action.
If that doesn't work, uninstall the logitech drivers from add/remove programs and reboot. Windows will have drivers for the mouse so it will still work. Does the wheel work with windows drivers?.(it may have a different action to the one you picked but something should work with it)
If it does then re-installing(if you want) the logitech drivers should sort it.
If it doesn't then it must be the mouse. Try it on another computer to be sure.

Whenver I scroll down a page with the mouse scroller, it takes me back to previous web pages I have already explored, instead of doing its job and scrolling down the page. It never did that till recently. I have always been able to scroll down pages in IE with no problem. Could this be a hijacker virus or something else??
