Speaker Tip: Zooming the Chrome Tools Window

October 08, 2017

When doing a technology demo, it’s important that everyone in the room can see your screen. This usually means bumping up your view to 150%-200% depending on the screen, room, and relative blindness of the people in your audience. I demo a lot of web technologies, so I find myself showing the Chrome developer tools. Fun fact, when you zoom web pages in Chrome, that setting doesn’t apply to the developer tools. Fortunately, this is easy to fix.

TL;DR

To zoom in Chrome developer tools: open the developer tools window, hold down ctrl, press + or - to zoom in and out.
