How do you turn off “Zoom to Layer Content” in PS 2020?! The action is trigged when option/alt clicking a layer or group which in turn zooms to the contents of the layer to the screen. The action is the same key combination used to collapse nested groups. The new feature is not desirable and I'm looking for a way to turn it off. Please help!
Full description of the aciton can be found here, topic #9.
Where did you see Alt-Click Layer Pallets (Layer Content Thumbnail, or mask thumbnail, of outside the layer thumbnails) documented as a shortcut for collapse nested groups? I can not find that Alt-Click Layers is a Photoshop shortcut for collapse nested groups. I can find fit layers to screen
Opt/Alt + click the triangle next to a Layer Group will expand/collapse all Layer Groups including nested Layer Groups.
Not sure of the official documentation but I've been using this feature for years. The same auther in the link above documents the feature here posted on 11-05-2015.
The issue is this same legacy feature is now combining a non desirable feature (Zoom to Layer Content) which I would like to turn off.
That document Alt-Click on the Expand|Contract icons like in the Action Palette but in the layers palette. Not the Layer Group thumbnail. The seems to work, However clicking on the Group Folder Thumbnail Icon Zoom in one the group.
Yes you can also do this function in the Action Pannel.
Thank you for your help but maybe I'm not being clear. New PS 2020 - opt+click the group arrow in the layer pannel will close the group AND zoom your document. I want to disable the zooming of the document as it is not a desirable feature. If I opt+click the layer outside of the arrow and the doc zooms ok fine but if I opt+click the arrow I only want the groups to collapse just like the PS versions that came before it.
This is a key combination I use countless times a day and have reverted back to PS 2019 until there is a solve. The zooming of the document creates additional steps in my work flow as I now how to reposition the doc to where it was before collapsing all groups.
Note: Maybe this is a Mac only bug.
I'm sorry, I don't have a solution, but would like to add that I am having the same problem! When I cmd+option click a layer thumbnail to deselect its contents, it also zooms to the layer content. This is extremely annoying and as you said, I do this many times a day and am also on a mac.
Count me in : I'm using the ALT + click for nested groups all the time and this new zoom to layer feature being on the same shortcut AND same zone of clicking as the little arrow is super annoying.
The feature is good and useful, just only make it work when clicking on the layers themselves, not the little arrow for nested groups. It's a simple and obvious way to separate the two that I honestly find quite blaffling they haven't thought of.

Same problem here. How to turn it off...
I usually use the shortcuts :
Ctrl as Select All
Ctrl + Shift as Add selection (+)
Ctrl + Alt as Substract selection (-)
Ctrl + Alt + Shift as Xor selection (x)
And the shortcuts with Alt are zooming now
HEllo, all, I suggest to try to updatre Photoshop to v 21.1 as there is a fix for the unwanted zoom to layer content: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/fixed-issues.html#photoshop-desktop-fixed-issues
There is no relevant content on this link???
Hi i have 21.1.1 but it doesn't seems like it has solved this issue
Hi! I have version 22.43 and there's still no fix for the unwanted zoom-to-layer content. Please, I really don't want this feature. Just let me know how I can turn it off, please! I've checked "Known Issues" and it's not in there.
PLEASE, this is a real problem since it gets in the way for when I want to alpha-lock layers to a specific layers and I always manages to zoom in on that layer when I don't want to.
You will have my eternal thanks if you can fix this unwanted layer zoom in-feature.
