How to Zoom In and Out Webpage on Brave browser

Learn how to magnify or zoom in and out the web page text on the Brave computer browser. We can also set a default zooming level for all websites.

Web page zooming in and out is a great accessibility feature that allows you to magnify and shrink the text or image on the website page. The Brave browser offers the feature to set the default zoom level for all pages, which helps view the pages with proper eyesight adjustment. We can also use the keyboard shortcut to adjust the different zoom levels.

Enable Page Zoom In and Out on Brave browser

Zooming in and out of a webpage is an extremely convenient feature that allows users to magnify or shrink a page. The feature changes the size of the web page’s various components.

There might be many reasons one would want to zoom in or out of a web page on the browser. Sometimes the text size is too small to read, and sometimes an image can be viewed better when zoomed in. For easy viewing, users can zoom in or zoom out of a web page.

All browsers allow users to enlarge or reduce the size of the web page and text. It is true for the Brave browser too. So, it does not matter if you have bad eyesight or if the web page is just hard to view; you can zoom in on the page to avoid the frustration of having to squint to see the page.

On the other hand, if a web page is hard to read in its original form and some elements are hard to view/cut off, then zooming out may help. If that does not work for you, then you can use the full-screen mode too.

  1. I would like to be able to lock the zoom at a specified amount or just lock to 100%. I use a touchpad and on occasion it will zoom because of multi touch. Thank you.

    1. Hi Justin, there is not built-in option to acheive what you are looking for, however, you can check for the browser extensions. I could see few extensions on Chrome web store that can be installed in Chromium-browser like Brave.
      1. Zoom Block
      2. Ctrl Zoom

      You can install on your Brave browser and check which one fits your need. Thank you.
