How To Zoom In Or Out Of A Web Page


My Uncle called me because he said everything on his screen was gone all tiny. His cat had run across is keyboard and somehow managed to reduce or zoom out on his Chrome browser making everything look tiny.

So here is how to Zoom In or Out in your browser. In most cases using the CTRL and either the +(PLUS) key or the -(Minus) key to make things bigger¬† or smaller. But for more precise control…

Opera

Big Red “O”, top left-hand corner. In the menu that pops down, click on the +(plus) or -(minus) sign next to the Zoom option to make elements on your web page look bigger or smaller.

Same thing except click on the three stacked dots in the top right-hand corner.

Vivaldi

Click on the “V” in the little red square in the, top left-hand corner and click on View. Then either Page Zoom In or Out. You have to repeat in this case to make it bigger or smaller. They have numbers listed suggesting you can use number 0 (zero) to zoom in or 9 (nine) to zoom out but neither works on my system.

  1. Don’t let the school age kids hear this one. That’s a new take on “my dog ate my homework” – “my cat made my screen too tiny”….LOL
