See Them Clearly

How often do you find yourself squinting while using MS PowerPoint’s slide sorter view?

Those slides can be pretty tiny and if they resemble each other too much, it gets even harder to distinguish one from the other.

Looking for an easy way to make the thumbnails in the slide sorter a little larger? Or maybe a lot larger!

Well, today, I’ve got a couple of suggestions for you to try.

The first is to use the zoom box, which is located in the toolbars at the top.

I found that I could change the value to anything from 20 percent on up to 100 percent.

You can either:

  • Choose a value from the drop down list you get from the down arrow on the right hand side.

  • Or click inside the zoom box, type a value and hit the Enter key.

Another option I’d like to discuss is available only if your mouse has a scroll wheel.

If you place your mouse pointer over the slides on the screen, hold down the Ctrl key and scroll the wheel, you’ll find that the slide size zooms in and out.

Either way, you can put an end to your slide sorter squinting forever!
