Questions tagged [zoom]

In computer graphical user interfaces the Zoom feature is used to make a window larger (zoom in) or smaller (zoom out) or to make only the text larger (zoom text only). Questions about using the zoom feature on electronic devices, media players, cameras, cell phones or smart phones, except insofar as they interface with your computer are off topic.
