Zoom-in and Zoom- Out Operation in Word 2013

You can apply zoom-in and zoom-out for your own Word document. Because Word provides this functionality. Zoom-in enlarges the size of text whereas Zoom-out reduces the size of the text.

Here I am going to describe only "Zoom-in" and "Zoom-out" operations.

Zoom just changes the size of the font on-screen without affecting the other attributes. We can apply the zoom operation in several ways described below.

Zoom-in Using View tab

Step 1

Write some simple text in a Word document. Or use "=rand()".

The Zoom dialog box opens where you can increase or decrease the font of the text by selecting "Zoom to", which is 100% by default.

You can also select the custom percentage. Then click  on the "OK" button. Then you will see the effect.
