Change Zoom Using The Keyboard

Dear Computer Lady,

About 3 weeks ago a PC shortcut stopped working on my windows 10 computer. I used to be able to press CTL ALT and either the – (minus) sign or the + (plus) sign to change the size of the font on my PC.

Now this procedure will not work for me. Did Yahoo make the change or is there some way I can get this short cut back.

Thanks, Patrick in Highland CA

Dear Patrick,

I am assuming that you are viewing web pages in a browser when you try to use this shortcut.

If so, you simply have the shortcut wrong. Instead of Ctrl and ALt, just hold down the Ctrl button on your keyboard and press either the + or – keys to increase or decrease the view of the yahoo website.

This shortcut works in Internet Explorer, Edge, Chrome and Firefox.
