Using a Track Pad? Be careful how you're moving your fingers around on it. It sounds like you're accidentally zooming your desktop.

Click on the Apple in the top left corner - open System Preferences - Trackpad

Go through all the tabs there to learn about the trackpad.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

What kind of Blue Tooth mouse? You can do the same accidental zooming with an Apple wireless (Blue Tooth) mouse that you can do with a trackpad. Same advice applies.
