Questions tagged [zoom]

For questions about using the zoom feature to make a window larger or smaller on a computer. Questions about using the zoom feature on electronic devices, media players, cameras, cell phones or smart phones are off topic, except insofar as they interface with your computer. For questions about the Zoom videoconferencing system, use the [zoom-meeting] tag, not the [zoom] tag.
