Configure Excel to Use the
Mouse Wheel for Zooming
If you frequently zoom in or out of a
worksheet, you can save time by configuring
Excel to enable you to zoom using the wheel
on your mouse.
Zooming a worksheet is a useful technique.
For example, you might want to zoom out of a
large worksheet to get a sense of the overall
structure of the worksheet data. Similarly,
zooming in on a section of a worksheet enables
you to focus on just that section.
You normally zoom either by using the
controls in the View tab’s Zoom group, or by
using the Zoom slider that appears in the
bottom-right corner of the Excel window.
These techniques are fine if you only zoom
occasionally. However, if you use the zoom
feature frequently, it is a good idea to configure
Excel to zoom using the mouse wheel.
