Windows 7, text magnifying/shrinking problem

Using my laptop, I use the touchpad when surfing. (I use Safari if at makes a difference.). Something I'm doing (touching) randomly increases or decreases the text & it's driving me nuts! Anyone experiencing this and how do I stop it (or change it back). Right now I have to close the page and reopen.

Go to Control Panel, Hardware and Sounds, Devices and Printers, Mouse.

Click on Device Settings, then Settings. Click on Pinch Zoom and uncheck it if it is checked.

I use the zoom feature via keyboard sometimes. Ctrl + and Ctrl - will increase and decrease. Ctrl 0 (number, not letter) will reset the page to it's original size format.

My device settings was a bit different but I did find the pinch zoom and disable it. I had never heard of that setting. Thanks for the help!!
