Zooming in allows you to magnify your text, images, and also other objects on your PC display. There are different ways to zoom in on your system; you can either go by the keyboard shortcut, mouse scroll- wheel.

If you want to zoom the entire screen, you can use a tool called magnifier. Here are steps that will guide you to zoom in on your pc.

1. Open the page you want to zoom in; you can use your keyboard shortcuts and other apps.

2. Press the ctrl + + zoom in; you can use your keyboard combination for this.

3. you can also press Ctrl + 0 to return the screen to default magnification.

I love to code. I believe everything is programmed in a certain way to make it work. From human brains to every single command in the machines.

If you would like to zoom in on a PC, you do not have to make a lot of effort to do that.

These are some of the steps that you have to do:

• Choose the browser that you want to use. Some of the browsers are Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Google Chrome.

• Hold the CTRL and press + key so that you can zoom in.

• If you would like to zoom out, press the CTRL button and the – button.

• There are some touch screen devices that will not require you to use the keyboard anymore when you are zooming in and out. You simply need to swipe using your thumb and your forefinger to zoom in and out.

• The first step is to open that particular page or the application you would like to zoom in on. When you need to zoom in for a closer look and to pick details of a certain page you are viewing on your PC; you can press Ctrl ++ so as to zoom in

• If you are using an external mouse which has the scroll key, you can press the Ctrl button while you scroll the scroll key or wheel on the mouse forward, this would zoom in on whatever you are doing on your PC. To zoom out it is just the same step you hold the ctrl key down while you scroll, the scroll wheel to the back

• If the PC has a touch screen, you can use two of your fingers to pinch the screen to zoom out while using the fingers to spread out the screen would zoom in.
