Win 10 photos app mouse wheel behavior suddenly changed

Specs: Windows 10 pro 64-bit, i7 4790, 24GB
Ever since upgrading to Windows 10, I've gotten used to the new Photos app, including the behavior of scrolling prev/next photos with mouse wheel.
Then for some odd reason it changed suddenly, where mouse wheel started zooming.
(100% sure that the ctrl key isn't pressed)

I think there was an update to the app a few days ago, could that cause the random sudden change?
If so, is there a way to reverse it?

The old photo viewer from Windows 7 is still there in Windows 10 so just set it as the default app for viewing photos:

right click on an image file, "Open with" -> "Choose another app" -> "Windows Photo Viewer". Then check "Always use this app" and hit "OK", and you'll be back to the way things were before.

Thanks for the suggestion, but that's a no go neither.
Even in the old Windows Photo Viewer, my mouse wheel is zooming instead of scrolling.

That seem to suggest some kind of settings with the mouse wheel itself has changed, but I can't figure out what?
