Keyboard Shortcut for Semantic Zoom? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Windows 8, I like how I can do everything via touch, mouse or keyboard.

    ...except semantic zoom.

    Is there a keyboard shortcut for this?

    For touch it is pinch.
    For mouse it is ctrl-scroll wheel or the minus button in the bottom right corner of the start screen.

    How do I access semantic zoom from the keyboard?

  • Thanks Jeff. Glad to know it exists!

    Keyboard shortcut for semantic zoom: hold the Ctrl key down (with the Shift key, if no numeric keypad is available) and press the plus (+) or minus (-) key

    I did a bing search on the internet for: "windows 8 keyboard shortcuts semantic zoom"

    ...and could not find a single article that listed that other than the top link that points to this forum question.
