How to Change Zoom Level in Internet Explorer

information   Information
This will show you how to change the Zoom level in Internet Explorer to enlarge or reduce the view of a webpage from 10% to 1000%. Unlike changing font size, zoom enlarges or reduces everything on the page, including text and images.

The default zoom level percentage is 100%.

Tip   Tip
  • If you have a mouse with a wheel, hold down the CTRL key, and then scroll the wheel to zoom in or out.
  • If you keep clicking the Change Zoom Level button , it will cycle through 100%, 125%, and 150%, giving you a quick enlargement of the webpage.
  • From the keyboard, you can increase or decrease the zoom value in 10% increments. To zoom in, press CTRL+(+). To zoom out, press CTRL+(-). To restore the zoom to 100%, press CTRL+0.




Here's How:
1. Open Internet Explorer, and step 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 below for what you would like to do.
