Edited by Lukward Thomason, VisiHow, Eng

Hi! You're watching VisiHow, and this is a tutorial on how to zoom out from the Windows 8 start menu.


Steps

  1. 1
    The first thing that we need to do is access the start menu by clicking on the lower-left corner of the screen
    .
    Once in the start menu, you will notice that you have a lot of apps pinned here. In this case, we don't have really a lot, but you might. If you don't want to scroll to the left or to the right to see all the apps, you can simply zoom out.
