How does pinch to zoom work?

You can also zoom into a page by using pinch gestures.

Text will not be reformatted when you use pinch to zoom.

To zoom in:

  • Just place two finger tips on the screen and move them away from each other.

To zoom out:

  • Use a pinch gesture (move your finger tips closer together).
Tip: If you've zoomed way in with the pinch gesture, double tap, then double tap again to return your view to normal.

Go ahead, give your device a little pinch. We won't look!
