Adjusting Font size and zoom - increase the size of our web pages

This article explains how to zoom in and out per website and describes the zoom text settings.   There are two quick ways to zoom in and out.

  • To zoom out, decreasing the size, press and hold [Ctrl] while pressing [-].
  • To reset size back to normal, press and hold [Ctrl] while pressing [0].

If your mouse has a scroll wheel, press and hold [Ctrl] while scrolling up to zoom in and down to zoom out.
