Accessibility - screen zooming

Hi folks,
I'm new to the forum and really new to Linux. Does anyone out there have experience with a accessibility feature that would allow a user to zoom in on a screen (like how a Mac does it). I did some research and found compizconfig-settings-manager but I can't install it in Garuda. Any suggestions?

Hi there! Welcome to the forums

First try searching in system settings.

Second tell us which edition are you using, because it is solely desktop environment thing.


Just start reading :slight_smile:

By default, you can use CTRL + Plussign to zoom in and CTRL + minussign too zoom out.

This is the same as option + command + equals sign in mac and option + command + minus sign in mac.


I habitually use CTRL + mouse wheel.

There is a setting in System Settings => Workspace Behavior => Effects.

You may also try a specific tool.

Thanks folks! So far the CTRL+plussign does what I need. I'll keep experimenting with other options and learning more (with your help)!
