Zoom Dialog Box. Make Text Larger, Easier to Read

 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this video, I'll show you how to use the Zoom dialog box to make your text fields easier to read in Microsoft Access.

Courtney from Quincy, Massachusetts (a Platinum Member) asks: A couple of users in my office have asked if I can make the text in a couple of the fields on my forms larger for them, however, I want to be able to see as much information on the screen as possible when viewing the record. Is there a way to just zoom in to that field when it's being edited?


Members will learn how to make specific fields larger when you click on them (or tab to them) and then shrink again when you move off of them. This will allow you to dynamically resize the fields on your forms.
