How to make things bigger in Safari on a Mac

Updated June 12th, 2019.

You can enlarge things three ways in Safari:

  1. Click the “Zoom In” button in the toolbar (if you’ve added it to your toolbar)
  2. Choose “Zoom In” from the View menu
  3. Use the keyboard shortcut ⌘+ (Command-plus)
Safari's View menu, showing Zoom in, Zoom Out, and Zoom Text Only.
Safari’s View menu, showing Zoom In and Zoom Out. Notice “zoom Text Only”– keeps images the same size while increasing the size of text.

I like #3.

⌘- (Command-minus) will make things smaller again.
