View Full Version : Google Chrome Question

17-05-2010, 10:41 AM
Google Chrome has the ability to control the current page by zooming to get the print on that page to increase in size. Is there any control in the browser to make the chosen zoom level apply to all pages and to also retain that setting so that it does not have to be reset each time the browser is opened? I have explored the bowser options but unless I have missed it, can't see any reference to this. Can anybody help please?

Change the font in windows to a bigger size

Hi Smurf,

You may be able to adjust the settings by clicking on the Wrench, then Options, then Under the hood, then there should be some font settings in there.

That may help?

Another nice feature is holding Ctrl and using your mouse scroll wheel to adjust the font sizes.

This shows how to adjust the default font size in chrome.

Thanks Dave...I had a look at that originally and made some adjustments to the font size but the adjustments didn't take.ie they kept reverting to the default size. Nowhere on that page apart from hitting ok is there the ability to save changes.

Try grabbing the latest -dev build of Chrome (6.x), as when I adjust the font size using the scroll wheel, it applies it across all tabs for that domain.
Example: It'll increase the size for PressF1, but not for other sites such as Google or nzherald.
It even remembers it across browser restarts

Grab the development version of Chrome from here:

Yep..that worked.....I like the inbuilt memory.......that allows it to retain the setting next time the browser opens. Thanks for your help Chill :)

Piggy back on these questions:-
Can you reload a page other than the reload on tool bar? F key??

F5 is the default refresh key for most applications

Use Ctrl+F5 to force a full re-download of the page (in the event that it's not being updated properly)

Same for Ctrl + R, or Command + R for on Mac :)
