How to enlarge a web page

WHPS Tech Tip

If you have difficulty reading web pages because the text is too small, it’s very easy to ‘Zoom in’ and make the whole page bigger.

There are several ways to do this:

  • Ctrl + scroll wheel - if you use a mouse with a scroll wheel (usually between the two buttons on a standard mouse) wheel it gently away from you while holding down the Ctrl key on the keyboard. Wheel it towards you to make the page smaller.
  • Ctrl + - if you don’t have a scroll wheel, hold down the Ctrl key and press the + (plus) key to make the page bigger. If you over do it, Ctrl – (Ctrl & minus) will make it smaller again.
