The latest Microsoft Windows update (KB4093112) has caused an issue with tablets and Photoshop.
You can either - undo the update
Do the following :
1. Use notepad to create a text file and type in :
2. Save the file as PSUserConfig.txt in the following location
C: > Users > Username > AppData > Roaming > Adobe > Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 > Adobe Photoshop CC 2018 Settings
3. Go to the tablet properties and uncheck "Use Windows Ink"
4. Restart Photoshop
That is it - all should now work well (you need to do all the above steps to retain pen pressure)
There is a third option if the above does not work on your tablet. Microsoft made this change intentionally and they have issued a way round it with registry change (see link below). However for Photoshop and most tablets the PSUserConfig method works.

I searched "Photoshop zoom issue", and was met with about 1000 unrelated results.
I was browsing all the questions until one sounded similar. That's why I started my post with the note that I wasn't even sure what to call the issue (therefore unsure of what to search for). I also followed through on my own post and posted the result that helped fix the issue before anyone else commented. Sometimes searching an issue isn't effective and sometimes it's hard to know what to even search for. The forums are here for moments like that.
Also for the record, your third option is the only thing that worked in my case. The first two did not work. Just for the sake of further understanding the issue.
