Set a Page Zoom Level in Brave browser on the Computer

Do you want to magnify or zoom in and out the page text in the Brave app? Learn how to adjust the zoom level for better readability.

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.

In this guide, we have shared these steps to manage the page zooming level to a default value in Brave Browser.

Adjust Page Zoom Level

You must adhere to the instructions to zoom in and out of a webpage on the Brave browser. There are two methods through which users can adjust the page size for viewing its contents. Here are the steps to change page zoom:

  1. Launch the Brave browser on the computer.
  2. Open the webpage to zoom in or out.
  3. Click on More [3vb] for options and locate the Zoom menu.
    Page Zoom settings under the Brave menu bar options
  4. Click on the + sign to magnify and the sign for shrink.

Once you press the zoom IN and OUT commands will reflect on the web browser, showing how much you have magnified or reduced the page size in percentage.

Alternatively, you can also use the keyboard shortcuts.

  1. Press the Ctrl or Cmd and + (plus sign) keys to zoom magnify.
  2. Alternatively, keypress Ctrl or Cmd and (minus sign) keys to zoom out.

Whether you have zoomed in or out of the page, the address bar will have a magnifying glass symbol. You can click on it and adjust the page size too.

You can also click on the + or buttons on the options bar to adjust the page size in real-time. Finally, you can click the Reset button to return to the original screen.

Bottom Line

The default zoom level on the Brave browser is 100%, just like other browsers. You can alter this value and even reset it to your liking. Zooming in or out of a webpage is an effortless process on the browser.

You can adjust and set the default zoom level for all the pages and use the full-screen option in Brave Browser as needed.

  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.
