In Windows, the standard scroll-wheel zoom key is Ctrl. Pretty much everything follows this standard, including all web browsers, Word, Explorer, even Adobe Reader. Except Adobe softwares (Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, etc.). It uses the Alt key instead.

This drives me nuts. Switching between all of these programs has my fingers in a frazzle. I keep using the wrong key in the wrong program.

I tried to change it using Keyboard shortcuts panel, but Alt+Mouse Wheel is not an option. It doesn´t recognize Crtl + scroll wheel.


Is there a way to scroll-wheel zoom with Ctrl instead of Alt?

You can't change it. But there's a setting in the preferences > General that allows you to just use the scrollwheel for zooming.
