How do you reset screen zoom to zero?
I mean the one you do with control-mouse wheel, I know you can reset it with the wheel again until it gets to 1:1 but it would be nice to have a keyboard shortcut to make it 1:1
Is there?

I'd say hold ⌥⌘-. In fact holding ⌥⌘8 will disable it, but once you press it again, it comes back to the old level, therefore ⌥⌘- seems the best solution.

When zoom is enabled in accessibility preferences, command option - is the default shortcut for zooming out, it's not instant, but it's a pretty fast method.
