For Seniors: How to Zoom In and Out in an Office 2010 Document

While you’re working in a Microsoft Office 2010 application (or any version of Office), you may want to zoom in to see a close-up view of part of your work or zoom out to see a bird’s-eye view of the whole project. In Office, you can zoom in or out as much as you want to meet your personal preference.

The lower the zoom percentage, the smaller everything looks — and the more you can see onscreen at once, without scrolling.

Word, Excel, and PowerPoint all have the same zoom controls, located in the bottom right of the window. (Zoom controls also appear on the View tab in each application.)

Zooming doesn’t affect the size of printouts. It is only an onscreen adjustment.

Here’s how the zoom controls work:

  • Drag the slider to adjust the zoom (to the left to zoom out, and to the right to zoom in).

  • Click the minus or plus button (at opposite ends of the slider) to slightly zoom out (minus) or in (plus).

  • Clicking the number of the current zoom percentage opens a Zoom dialog box, which shows more zooming options.
