Keyboard Shortcut for 'Zoom'

This is one of my favorite keyboard shortcuts, especially as fonts seem to be getting smaller and smaller… Or am I just getting older? In any case, here is the shortcut:

Zoom IN: CTRL + +

Zoom OUT: CTRL + –

Return to Original Size: CTRL + 0

To use any of these keyboard shortcuts, hold down the CTRL key on your keyboard (or the Command key on a Mac) and then type the other character. EXAMPLE: To Zoom in, hold down the CTRL (or Command) key and then type the “+” key.

What I really love about this shortcut is that it works on web pages – bye-bye, teeny-tiny fonts! (One exception: it doesn’t work on Internet Explorer 6, only the newer versions). It also works in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, which can be a big help when you are working on fine details of graphic images.

  1. I adore your site greatly. Will bookmark. Keep up to briliant work on it. Gracias

  2. Gday, for starters I feel the need to mention that we really took pleasure studying this article. I was just curious to ascertain if you were interested in making some guest posts on a web site of mine? – Scrapbooking Page Ideas. Have a quick glimpse but I think you will find that with your wonderful writing and viewpoint you’re able to spread your know-how and acquire some added coverage for your own site. Contact details are on the webpage. Awaiting hearing from you.

  3. Thank you both. Coleman – I looked at the link you gave, but was unable to see how to contact you. I would potentially be interested in writing an article for you, although I am not currently doing anything with digital scrapbooking. You’d have to let me know what topics you’d like to see, and I can tell you if I feel knowledgeable enough to write on that. If you are interested in something like this, you can email me on the Contact Page, above.
