Zoom or change your document view

You can change how you view a document or spreadsheet, like making the text bigger or hiding the toolbar at the top.

To zoom in a slide, you can use keyboard shortcuts.

Zoom in or out

  1. On your computer, open a document in Google Docs or a spreadsheet in Google Sheets.
  2. In the toolbar, click 100%.
    • Choose how big you want your text or enter a number from 50 to 200.
    • In Google Docs, to make the document as wide as the browser window, click Fit.

Change your view

  1. On your computer, open a document, spreadsheet, or presentation.
  2. On the toolbar, click View, then click an option.
    • Full screen: Hides the menu and toolbar. To exit full screen, on your keyboard, press Esc or Escape. If you're using a touch screen, touch and hold to open the context menu and then Exit full screen.  
    • Show print layout: This option is only available in Google Docs that are in pages format. See your headers, footers, and margins between pages as if you’d printed the document.

Tip: Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides remember your most recent view. When you change your view, it doesn’t change for anyone else looking at the file.
