Method 1- Quickly Zoom into Websites

Step 1: Click on the three dots menu icon in the top right corner.

Step 2: You will find the zoom option. Using this, you can quickly zoom in and zoom out from websites.

Let’s say you have zoomed in/out to different levels on different websites. On Chrome, the setting remains the same for the website until you manually reset it. Here’s how you can erase the custom zoom levels for websites in Chrome.

Step 3: Click on the three dots menu icon in the top right corner. Click on Settings.

Method 2- Custom Page Zoom Extension

The Custom Page Zoom extension helps you set custom zoom levels for websites in Chrome. Here’s a step-by-step procedure to install and use the extension.

Step 7: The third slider (y) can be used to move vertically along the page.

Method 3- Zoom Page WE Extension

This is an alternate option to the first extension. Not only does it let you set custom zoom levels for websites in Chrome, but it also lets you adjust the pixel size of elements. This additional feature is unique and is one of the reasons why we recommend this extension.

Step 1: Visit the extension page. Click on Add to Chrome > Add Extension.

Step 2: Once installed, click on the extensions menu. Select the Zoom Page WE extension.

Step 3: The zoom control panel will now open up. Firstly you have the menu to change the pixel size.

Step 4: By increasing the px number, you can increase the pixel size of elements of the website, meaning it will get enlarged for better visibility. You can notice the difference between this screenshot below and the one above.
