HOW TO CHANGE THE SIZE OF A WEB PAGE

Web pages sometimes have small text that can be difficult to read. Most Web browsers support the ability to zoom in and out so you can control the size of the page.

Sometimes web pages have small text or are hard to read. Today on 2-Minute Miracles, we'll show you how to zoom in and out on a Web page.

Most Web browsers give you the ability to zoom in on a page, making it bigger. Let's take a look at some easy keyboard steps for browser zoom.

  • PC: Press the CTRL key and the + or - key to zoom in or out
  • MAC: Press the COMMAND key and the + or - key to zoom in or out

Each browser also has a menu to access the zoom feature.

  • Internet Explorer: Click on the magnifying glass in the bottom right of the window
  • Chrome: Click on the wrench in the top right corner of the window. Click + or - on the zoom option.
  • Safari: Select the View menu, then click Zoom In or Zoom Out
  • Firefox: Select the View menu, then click Zoom In or Zoom Out

Note: You may need to change the zoom level back after you are finished, as other sites may be too big (or too small) to read.
