Word documents constantly change font size while I am typing.

HP Recommended
HP Compaq Elite
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Using i5 and win 10, typing in word - screen constantly changes font size disrupting my typing which is important as I am transcribing lectures and have to work at speed.

 

The Elite 8300 has a touch screen but I am not touching it nor is any of my equipment. Both keyboard and mouse are wired.

Can you advise as it is extremely irritating and time consuming.

I am also recently having trouble with the Windows notification panel constantly sliding in from the side  of the screen and I cannot seem to disable it. Maybe that is connected?

Thanks for the link but my font only changes size not type, the entire page enlarges to fill the screen, and I believe it has only happened since the windows notification page started to jump in too.

If not due to fonts but the whole page, please try tom hold down Ctrl key and press - (minus sign). May be during typing you touch Ctrl key and + (plus) sign. You may want just to touch Shift and +.
