How do I zoom in on my workspace?

VS Code for Education has many features to help make the editor accessible to all users. Zoom and High Contrast colors improve editor visibility, keyboard-only navigation allows use without a mouse, and the editor has been optimized for screen readers.

You can adjust the Zoom level in VS Code with the View > Appearance > Zoom commands. The zoom level increases or decreases by 20% each time a Zoom command is executed.

  • View > Appearance > Zoom In (Ctrl+=) - increase the Zoom level.
  • View > Appearance > Zoom Out (Ctrl±) - decrease the Zoom level.
  • View > Appearance > Reset Zoom (Ctrl+Numpad 0) - reset the Zoom level to 0.

Note: If you are using a magnifier make sure to hold the alt key while viewing the hover to allow the mouse to move over the hover.
