Safari, the default web browser on Mac, gives you the ability to shrink or enlarge both the content and the text on all websites or just specific ones. Ease the strain on your eyes and browse better by setting a default zoom level in the browser.
How to Set a Default Zoom Level for All Websites
Start by opening the “Preferences” menu. Find it by clicking Safari > Preferences in the top menu bar.
From the window that opens, click Websites > Page Zoom. You can now open the “When Visiting Other Websites” drop-down menu to select your desired zoom level for all websites.
How to Set a Default Zoom Level for a Single Website
Setting the individual page zoom level for specific websites takes just four clicks. In the top menu bar, click Safari > Settings for This Website.
Select the current zoom setting next to “Page Zoom” and click your desired setting.
To reset the zoom level to 100 percent on any website, press Command + 0. Hold Command and press the Minus (-) or Plus (+) key to shrink or enlarge the website, respectively.
You can also hold Option + Command and press the Minus (-) or Plus (+) key to shrink or enlarge just the text of the website.
To set a default zoom level for just the text of one website, hold down the Option key and click “View.” While still holding Option, click either “Make Text Bigger” or “Make Text Smaller.”
These settings should make using Safari less straining and give you an overall more pleasant browsing experience.
