Ugh, this is so annoying -- it is the height of designer/developer arrogance (in my opinion -- and I'm a developer myself). The other answer's code did not work for me, but after much experimenting I got this to work (iPad 3/iOS 5): javascript:document.querySelector('meta[name=viewport]').setAttribute('content','width=device-width,initial-scale=1.0,maximum-...

There is a way to get the windows back to normal without quitting the app, but it's not ideal. If you move the dock, the applications will move back into place, the easiest way is to click the  and go to dock, then change the position, then repeat to put it back to where you had it originally. https://discussions.apple.com/message/23766770#23766770

In the latest version of Safari (11), go to: Safari -> Preferences -> Websites -> Page Zoom There you can set the default page zoom for all sites or a specific site. This seems to be a native feature of Safari now (the Page Zoom setting under the Advanced tab in preferences is gone.)

You can pinch to zoom, which will simulate Command ⌘+ and Command ⌘- You can also try the extension, which was mentioned by in Danijel's answer. Otherwise, you can hold down Control ^ and the screen will zoom in and out. It ends up looking like this though (which I don't think you want):

Press ⌘ command+⌥ option+F5, then select Enable zoom scroll gestures.

I'd say hold ⌥+⌘+–. In fact, holding ⌥+⌘+8 will disable it, but once you press it again, it comes back to the old level, therefore ⌥+⌘+– seems the best solution.

I created a bookmark in Mobile Safari with this url javascript:document.querySelector('meta%5Bname=viewport%5D').setAttribute('content','width=device-width,initial-scale=1.0,maximum-scale=10.0,user-scalable=1'); The easiest way to setup this bookmark is by: Add a bookmark to any page Edit the bookmark and set the url to the url I have above Now anytime ...

All you need to do is go to system preferences > trackpad > scroll and zoom > uncheck Zoom in or out and then check it again.

Format → Wrap to Page or Shift+⌘+W

Yes, There is an extension for this called ZoomBySite. Here is a description of the software from it's website: ZoomBySite is a Safari Extension that will automatically zoom each site to the zoom level of your last visit to the site. A site is defined by a unique domain name (so www.apple.com is considered different from store.apple.com and each ...

Do you have Magnet installed? That caused the same issue for me.

Using this extension from taharactrl I was able to zoom with ctrl+mouse wheel on all websites. OSX El Capitan + Chrome 47 Note : after installing the extension, for it to work on existing opened tabs you have to reload them.

You can go ahead and set it to what you want in Mail Preferences. These settings have no effect on what is seen at the other end. To do that you have to change the font for each outgoing individually in the New Message pane.

You can make a JavaScript bookmarklet to remove the meta tag. First, press the share button (the icon of the arrow coming out of a box) and press Add Bookmark. Call this “Enable Zoom” or similar. The address box is disabled, but don't worry: there's a way to fix this. Tap Save, then press the bookmarks button (the book icon), followed by Edit and the ...

The Quickstyle Safari Extension has served this purpose well for me. In particular it allows changing only the font size or virtually any other very detailed change. Click the toolbar icon (or use the keyboard shortcut) and select the element on the page that you'd like to apply changes to (or any element) to bring up the editor pre-filled with a rule that ...

I got it to work. Selecting the "System Preferences" from the top left "Apple" icon or just clicking the "System Preferences" icon directly both result in the "Enable Touch Bar Zoom" checkbox NOT showing up. The only way to consistently get it was to right click or click and hold on the "System Preferences" icon found in the dock, then select "...

When zoom is enabled in accessibility preferences, command option - is the default shortcut for zooming out, it's not instant, but it's a pretty fast method.

Google Chrome Its own UI, not web pages The following settings in TinkerTool affect the following pieces of Chrome's own UI: Chrome address bar, i.e. URL: System in TinkerTool (default font: Lucida Grande; largest size possible is 16 pt; larger sizes are truncated) titles of tabs: Help tags (default font: Lucida Grande; largest size possible is 13 pt; ...

As Am1rr3zA mentioned, you can select a custom style sheet from the preferences: I have added these rules to my safari.css file: html { zoom: 125%; } img { zoom: 75%; } @media print { html { zoom: 100%; } } It has a lot of annoying side-effects though. But ZoomBySite and AllPagesZoom have the same side-effects, and there is also a ...

This is now fixed in OS X 10.10.2

No, because the capture is capturing the pixels that comprise the selected area, not the 'screen' as it is displayed to you. It's something I've wished for in the past, too.

Make sure Zoom is enabled in Settings > General > Accessibility. When Zoom is enabled, you can double-tap with three fingers to zoom the entire screen of your iPhone/iPod/iPad. To move around, either hold three fingers on the screen and drag to show different parts in the viewport, or hold one finger along the edge of the screen to pan. If you need to ...

If you go to "preferences" in the Safari tab and then to "advanced" you can click the "Never use font sizes smaller than" button and then pick the font size you want. Then you won't have to squint and get real close to the screen to read it anymore.

Sublime Text 2 Press ⌘ , to open user preferences file, then set font_size to the desired value: { "font_size": 18 }

Use Command and the + button to zoom in!

In yosemite, you can activate it at the system level. For example: Preferences > Accessibility > Zoom > Use scroll gesture with keys to zoom Select ^ control Then use control and the mouse scroll to zoom. (Alternatively, tough that's not what's asked, in chrome, you can pinch to zoom by default)

There is a workaround posted on the Apple forums. Pros: The mouse/key entry performance does "feel" significantly better, as does the momentum zoom. Zoom is per-screen, rather than both at once Cons: It is still not nearly as performant as it was in Mavericks. The testufo.com site will still not render at 60fps while zooming. While this workaround does ...

Best workaround so far: In System Preferences-Accessibility, select Increase contrast (which will implicitly select Reduce transparency). This seems to improve performance in some circumstances, but it does dramatically affects aesthetics. The slider on http://kraken.io is smooth while zoomed in. There are still some circumstances where zooming is a little ...

After upgrading to Yosemite I've also been getting extremely slow response in a number of different situations such as long pauses for Spotlight to return file matches, slow start up of applications especially after waking from Display Sleep, as well as other operations. (It feels like walking in quicksand and finding you can't move like you could.) Also, I'...

If your mouse has a wheel or touch - hold the option key and then use the scroll wheel / scroll gesture or control. If you don't have that - you'll need to add a mouse with a wheel or add a trackpad to the iMac.
