So You’re in a Skype call and someone shares their screen to show you something. Everyone else is nodding along, but you’re squinting at your computer screen trying to read the tiny text they are referencing. It’s just too small! In the past this was an issue, but with the latest version of Skype you can now zoom in.
You can now quickly zoom in with your mouse or with the handy controls on the screen. That way, you can always adjust the shared screen to exactly the size you need.
How to Use the Zoom-In Function
Zooming in with Skype is a cinch! We designed it to work in multiple ways, to help ensure this feature is accessible for all our users.
Here’s all the different ways you can use the Zoom-In function:
Press CTRL (on Windows) or Command (on Mac) and scroll with your mouse (⌨️ + 🖱)
Or, you can use the touchpad to zoom in (no keyboard needed)
Or, you can also zoom in with the controls you see on your screen
