Chrome ignores “user-scalable=no” meta tag


Why <strong>desktop-chrome</strong> ignores this:

<meta name="viewport" content="user-scalable=no, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, minimum-scale=1, width=device-width">

I can resize chrome content with <strong>windows-touch</strong> and also <strong>ctrl+mouse-wheel</strong>. I want to prevent zooming.

<strong>Chrome:</strong> Version 65.0.3325.146 (Official Build) (32-bit)


According to <strong><a href="https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/basics" rel="nofollow">the Google Map documentation</a></strong>,


Android and iOS devices respect the following <meta> tag:

<meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no" />

This setting specifies that the map should be displayed full-screen and should not be resizable by the user. Note that the iPhone's Safari browser requires this tag be included within the page's element.


Desktop computers do not respect the user-scalable attribute, though mobiles will.

If you want to prevent zoom in Chrome on <strong>desktop</strong> computers, your best bet would be to enable kiosk mode with the following startup arguments:

chrome.exe --kiosk --incognito --disable-pinch --overscroll-history-navigation=0
