I don’t quite follow.
What are the Tool’s settings (see the Options Bar)?
What are the Photoshop > Preferences > Tools settings that are related to the Zoom Tool?
I don't remember seeing this box, the zoom was a lot more smooth. I clicked and dragged to see my zoom and saw it zoom in real time and released when I liked my zoom. It would kind of center on the image as well. I don't know what options you mean. I looked for where the options are, but I didn't see any.

With the Zoom Tool selected look at the Options Bar (Window > Options).
The rest should not be hard to figure out: Photoshop > Preferences > Tools … those that include »Zoom« in their name might be pertinent to your issue.

Is »Scubby Zoom« checked?
I can't do this marquee zoom garbage.
To me animated zooming seems like a waste of resources.
There aren't any options selected and no tool presets. And honestly, I never learned PS professionally. Just use of "What does this button do?" and I don't know where the tab for Photoshop, preference or tools are. I don't see those options listed.
Scrubby Zoom is greyed out and I can't select it, and I am not sure what Animated zooming is.

Just post screenshots already,. please. (edited)
Also: Is Photoshop > Preferences > Performance > Use Graphics Processor checked or even available?
If it is greyed out your GPU may be under dimensioned or the GPU driver may be the problem.

No, I talked to Nvidia and they helped me. I am using the wrong drivers (accidentally downgraded when checking an old GPU on my pc). I have to erase my old drivers and download the new ones and see how that goes.

I just had the same issue and it was very annoying!
The option is the 'Scrubby Zoom', however it was greyed out for me.
I then double checked that my graphics processor settings were at 'basic' then I restarted Photoshop.
• Preferences > Performance > Advanced Settings > Basic
It now works fine for me.
Hope that helped...
As the others already mentioned - "Scrubby Zoom" probably is what you are looking for.
For me, it's greyed out if no document is open. If you open a document it's active.
Maybe this helps…
