Setting Default Zoom Factor in IE 9?

Hello, all.

I am wondering: How do you set the default zoom factor in IE 9?

I know about the option to automatically reset it whenever a new tab opens (found in the advanced tab in IE options), and I know that this is based off of what option is set in the "Ease of Access" control panel. The thing is, is that this is on a laptop, so I like all my icons and text outside of IE to be at 125%, but flash is messed up in IE if it isn't set to 100%. Also, every once in a while I discover that I have accidentally changed my zoom factor by hitting control+scroll (just a guess this is how it changes), and would like to avoid this.

Any ideas of how to fix this? Another way of fixing this might be to just disable ctrl+scroll (and ctrl+0, as that resets it to 125% as well)...

I don't know, but Chrome and Firefox don't listen to the Windows dpi setting. In Chrome, you can also change the default in Settings>Under the Hood.

I prefer IE tbh, so would like a solution for it... thanks for the reply, though.
