Set Default Page Zoom in Chrome browser on the Computer

The web browser is set to the system default screen zoom. However, using the built-in zoom feature, Google Chrome offers the feature to enlarge or shrink the size of web fonts and screen resolution.

The changes will be the new default and load all the pages at the same zoom level. To reduce the appearance, you can set the zoom level to less than 100%.

In this guide, I have shared written instruction about:

Set a Page Zoom Level

The default zoom in Chrome browser is 100%, but you can adjust it to a higher or lower zooming value. The higher percent will magnify the screen and text, while the lower percent will do the opposite. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Launch Google Chrome on your computer.
  2. Click on the More vertical 3-dots icon menu for options.
  3. Select Settings from the list.
  4. Scroll to the Appearance section, and select Page Zoom from the drop-down menu.
    Page zooming in chrome computerIt will automatically zoom the screen to the percentage which you set.

Anything less than 100% will shrink the screen, and over 100% will magnify it. You can zoom in Chrome to magnify or zoom out to minimize the display size.

Bottom Line

Page zooming helps people who need visual accessibility. If you set the zoom in higher than the standard zoom, the screen and the text will automatically load in a magnified view.

Similarly, we can force the zooming in Chrome browser on Android. The website restricting zoom will also allow the magnifications.
