Main Digest

One of the abilities of the Opera browser is a function to not only change the default text size of web pages but also increase image sizes by using the computer keyboard.

Opera can resize all aspects of website pages, including font or text size, image sizes, and web page sections.

Instructions to increase the image and font size in Opera

Press the "+" key, note that in some versions of the Opera browser you may have to also press the "Shift" key, to increase the text size and press the "-" to decrease font size. Each press of either key will increase or decrease the size of the web page text by 10%.

Another method of accomplishing this is to press "Alt" + "V" keys which will bring up the view menu, you can then press the "Z" key to bring up the Opera zoom functions and using the up and down arrow keys you can simply select the font size you require, to finish just press the "Enter" button.

Using the above method the changes to the text size options you made will NOT be remembered next time you open an Opera session. To have Opera use your font preferences each time you use it you will need to follow these instructions to semi-permanently increase or decrease the text size:

a) Click the "Tools" menu using your mouse then select "Preferences" from the menu or press "Ctrl ' and "F12" keys on your keyboard.

b) Click the "Web pages" tab with your mouse or select by pressing "Ctrl" and "Tab" keys until "Web pages" is highlighted.

c) Click the "Page Zoom" options box and select your text zoom size or press the "Tab" key twice to select the page zoom options, then use your up and down arrow keys to select the zoom level you require.

d) Finally click the "OK" button or press "Enter" to return to your Opera browser.
