On my macbook, when I double tap with three fingers, the screen zooms in (same as the accessibility zoom), and this type of zoom zooms in the entire screen. How can I turn this off?

The three finger double tap to zoom is controlled in System Preferences > Accessibility > Zoom > Advanced > Controls. I suspect you have the "Use trackpad gesture to zoom" enabled. Untick it!

  • You're correct, I looked at the regular trackpad settings. I've deleted my answer.
