Zooming in PowerPoint

Zooming in PowerPoint

A quick way to use the zoom feature in MS PowerPoint can be found right within your mouse.

If you have a mouse with a scroll wheel, you’re in luck! Just hold down the Ctrl key and spin the wheel.

You’ll find yourself zooming in and out with just the flip of a finger.

The good part is this will work on your slides in the Normal, Slide Sorter and Notes Page views, as well as, in your outline.

You’ll find that this little trick gives you a quick way to manage how much you can see on the screen at one time (especially in the Slide Sorter view). It’s a pretty useful tool when you’re trying to arrange your slideshow with minimal scrolling.

So, the next time you wish you could zoom in or out in PowerPoint, give this trick a try. You might find that it’s just the solution you’ve been looking for!
