With all the work that webmasters put into responsive designs, for web sites that stay readable at every size, there are just so many that aren’t readable–they’re scrolling off the sides, or the bottom, or the text is too small. The fix for that is the ZOOM feature in all the major browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. Here’s a reminder guide of how to zoom in (make everything bigger), zoom out (smaller), or just put browser magnification back the way the webmaster intended it to be (reset).

Here are the zoom settings again:

  • Control Plus (hold down Control, tap +) to zoom IN.
  • Control Minus to zoom OUT.
  • Control Zero to reset zoom.
