A handy feature built in to your Mac is the ability to zoom in and magnify the part of your screen under the cursor. You can choose to have the entire display show the zoomed area, or frame the zoomed area in a rectangle or along the side of the screen. There are lots of customization options such how to trigger and adjust the zoom area andhow it follows the cursor. You can change the keyboard shortcuts and other features too.
This is very helpful information for me in my role as Mac demonstrator to senior citizens. Thanks!
Excellent short and very informative presentation. I was aware of the zoom feature but your in-depth knowledge showed how easy it is to use. Thank you.
I would really like to zoom out on that cap!
Just what the doctor ordered. Critical knowledge for our presenters at NMUG for our weekly meetings.
Wonderful information! I have mine set to use Control+Option keys (for picture-in-picture) and scroll on the trackpad to zoom in or out - I wonder if the Magic Mouse can also do the scrolling there. Thank you!
Thanks, Gary! Fantastic information!
Is there a way to do this on an iPhone?
Lynda: An iPhone is very different as there is no cursor, mouse, etc to focus a zoom area. But you can zoom in on a lot of things or enlarge the text, etc. What, exactly, are you trying to make larger?
