Zoom the IDE and code?

    Question

  • Hello all

    Is there a way to zoom the entire IDE (of in my case VB express)?

    I would especially like to zoom (make bigger) the text of the code.

    So that eye strain is reduced.

    Your help is appreciated.

    Also you can achieve it via Tools-> Options->Front and colors, adjust the size of the text.

  • In Visual Studio you can adjust zoom of work Area like Text Editor by pressing Ctrl & Scrolling mouse.

    To change Zoom of entire IDE, there is no provision in Visual Studio. But you can achieve this using windows Magnifier that will be found in Ease of Access.
