Zoom images with keyboard shortcut

Postby malcymal » Fri Sep 28, 2018 7:41 am

Not a slotty discovery as such, but if you are a PC user, and don't know this already, holding down the windows key (bottom left next to ctrl) and then pushing the + plus or - minus key screen will magnify screen in and out which I find most useful on here for zooming into photos of machines posted when you can't zoom in any more through the image widget. As my eyes are no longer what they were, it's really useful. Mods, feel free to shift this post to any other category if it's in wrong place. Done - Site Admin.

Well, I didn't know that.
Very useful indeed, especially when browsing other 'specialist interest' sites.

In case anyone hasn't discovered - after you click an image in the Forum to enlarge it, if the image is bigger than your screen size, you can enlarge further by clicking the double arrow icon at the top, as shown.

Another handy tip is …..
When making a cheese toasted sandwich, wipe mayonnaise on the outside of the bread both sides of the sandwich. You get a wonderful and tasty golden brown surface after you've grilled it.

Even easier to zoom in to anything on screen by holding the Control key down (Ctrl, bottom left of keyboard) as you scroll the small wheel on your mouse!
