How to Resize a Web Page

by Lyan Uaha

Most modern day Web browsers allow you to easily resize a Web page. Increasing or decreasing the size of a Web page is not same as changing the font size. Changing font size only increases or decreases the size of the font on the page. Resizing pages increases or decreases the size of everything on it, including the images.

Click the "View" menu on the Web browser, click "Zoom" and then click "Zoom In" to increase the size of the Web page on Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. To decrease the size of the page, click "Zoom" and then click "Zoom Out." On Safari browser, click the "View" menu and then either click "Zoom In" or "Zoom Out" to increase or decrease the size of the page.

Press the "Ctrl" button and then the "+" button on your keyboard in combination while keeping the page in view to increase the page size. To decrease the size of the page, press the "Ctrl" and "-" buttons in combination.

Press and hold the "Ctrl" button and then roll the wheel on your mouse forward to increase the size of the page and backward to decrease the size.
