    Does it have to be in question format? "How do I zoom in and out?" sounds weird. What about simply "Page Zoom and Text Zoom"?

    It's a reference article, so according to Picking a good title (see also Michael's post), it could be "What is Zoom?" (page and text are already keywords to help find it).

    Yes, it could be in question form but, according to Michael's post, The part about picking a good title that Alice quotes is how I'd like us to name articles. I purposefully worded it to be a suggestion rather than the "policy" because I recognize that there will probably be good reasons for exceptions.

    "What is Zoom?" also sounds weird and probably not a question that anyone would ask. I would still prefer "Page Zoom and Text Zoom". If you absolutely must have it as a question, then my preference would be "What is Page Zoom and Text Zoom?"

    "Zoom" is the #9 search term, so I don't think we should specify "page" and "text", especially if both types of zoom are covered in the same article.

    This is a how-to article, so I would think "How do I use Zoom?" or something like that would be best.

    I went ahead and renamed this article, "How do I use Zoom?"

    ...and I made a revision to Font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages to redirect to this article.
