Windows 7: mouse pointer changes when scrolling

mouse pointer changes when scrolling

Hi, all. I have a Toshiba L675D laptop with Windows 7. Sometimes when I am scrolling vertically with my laptop's mouse, my mouse pointer turns into a black cross with an arrow at each end and the text size enlarges/decreases. I read that if you put two fingers on the mouse pad and spread them apart from each other toward the corners of the pad, i.e., one finger toward the top right corner and the other toward the bottom left, that this will happen. I think that sometimes when I am scrolling with my finger, a second finger touches the pad and causes this to happen. Does anyone know how to disable this feature? It's not necessary to me because there are other ways to change text size.

Thank you.

Jonathan K.
