Magnifying a Document

Note the Zoom box at the right end of the Standard toolbar. By default, Word displays documents at 100% magnification. Click the down arrow to the right of the Zoom box.

Click the magnification percentage that you want to use.

Word applies the setting you chose.

INTRODUCTION

Depending on the resolution of your monitor and the size of your text, there may be times when you want to zoom in on your text to enlarge it so that you can get a better look at it, or zoom out to shrink it to see more of the page. Zooming doesn't affect the size of the text when it prints; it only affects its appearance on your screen.


To use a setting that isn't one of the options in the Zoom list, click the current entry in the Zoom box, type a new number (you need not type the percent sign), and press Enter.

Word applies the setting you typed.
