Using Excel 2016, how can i zoom in whilst in print preview ?

I can zoom in a little using, CTRL + Mouse Scroll, however, I want to have a closer view, is this possible ?

  • So does ctrl+ mouse scroll not work? – djsmiley2k May 11 at 8:25
  1. Right-click on the Quick Access Tollbar and then choose Customize Quick Access Toolbar.
  2. When the Excel Options dialog box appears, choose Commands Not in the Ribbon.
  3. Scroll down the list until you find Print Preview Full Screen. Alternatively, you can click once on one of the first commands on the list, and then press P to jump down the list close to where Print Preview Full Screen resides.
  4. Double-click on Print Preview Full Screen to add it to your Quick Access Toolbar. You can also click once on it and choose Add, but double-clicking saves a step. Note that it's important to choose Print Preview Full Screen as opposed to Print Preview and Print. The latter simply provides easier access to the Backstage View on the File menu.
  5. Optionally, move Print Preview Full Screen further up the list. Each icon on the QAT is given a numeric keyboard shortcut. As shown in Figure 1, Print Preview Full Screen is the fourth icon on the list. This means on my computer I can press Alt-4 to display the classic Print Preview screen.
  6. Click OK once you're satisfied with the positioning of the new icon on your QAT. enter image description here
