Ubuntu – How to disable Alt-Scroll zoom in XFCE4 (Xubuntu)


In XFCE4 desktop environments, alt+scroll wheel zooms my entire desktop. I'm finding this very annoying because sometimes I flick the scroll wheel to go to the top of a document then press the alt key for a some unrelated keyboard shortcut and find myself zoomed in so far I can't see anything at all.

Is there any way to disable this feature?

  1. Open Settings Editor
  2. Go to Channel xfwm4
