Adjusting Font Size temporarily using Magnifier

Windows users can temporarily increase the portion of the screen by using a built-in Microsoft Magnifier. Follow the below steps to use the magnifier:

  • Use Windows logo key and ‘+’ sign from the keyboard to magnify/zoom the screen and ‘-‘ sign to zoom out the screen.
  • Exit the magnifier by pressing Windows key + Esc to exit the magnifier.

I think 125% works well most of the time. It is not recommended to change the default setting to more than 125%.
