Zooming Your Screen

Sometimes you show things on your screen that kids in the back row just can't see. Here's few quick tips to zoom in on your screen.

Try this one first. Go to your System Preferences, click on Trackpad (or Keyboard and Mouse if you don't see Trackpad). Look for Trackpad Gestures and make sure to enable "Zoom while holding Control". Now hold down Control, put two fingers on your trackpad and move up and down to zoom in and out.

The next one requires that you go into your System Preferences and go to Universal Access. Click on the "Seeing" tab and look for the Zoom section. Turn Zoom on. Now press Option + Apple (Command) + =. Your computer will zoom your screen to wherever your mouse is located. To zoom back out press Option + Apple (Command) + -.

In other applications you can zoom in by simply pressing Apple (Command) and + (plus sign). To zoom back out, Apple (Command) and - (minus).
