    Before we go to the settings, let me explain to you what the display zoom is used for
    .
    If you have poor eyesight and if you have trouble seeing the writing under your icons, or if you need to text someone and the letters are too small for you to read them, you will be able to zoom them in.

    The display zoom will just enlarge the areas in
    .
    You can use it as a window to zoom in a particular area, or you can set it up full screen and then your whole screen will be zoomed in. Let's go to the settings as we mentioned before. It's the icon that looks like a little gray gear. I keep it on my front screen just for convenience.
