Magnifier Screen Zoom for Ubuntu
« on: February 05, 2012, 08:15:06 AM »
This tutorial is on how to zoom the screen in Ubuntu using GNOME or KDE Magnify feature. Windows users may be aware of the Magnifier inbuilt application, where in a user can simply select a Zoom Level(%) and magnify his screen. Since Linux is no inferior to Windows, there is a similar feature for zooming screen in Linux.

Magnify Screen using Shortcut

The shortcut for magnifying the Screen is

Zoom Up Windows Key + Scroll Up

Zoom Down Windows Key + Scroll Down

The Level of Zoom depends on the amount of the scroll. To my amazement the tool can zoom to a much greater level than expected.
