Opera: Increase Default Text Size (Web Page Zoom Level)

If you don’t feel like reading small font size words in various web pages and can’t really be bothered to zoom in all the time, we have a simple solution: set a default page zoom level. Here is how:

Go to “Preferences” or simply press (Alt+P)
Select “Webpages” tab
Set “Page zoom” to your desired level.
Done.

On a downside, you can’t change it to 130-140%, but I am sure this will change in a near future.

    FYI you can change the size by putting this in the adders bar 

    opera:config#UserPrefs|Scale

    for laptop screens you shouldn’t go over 125% and for screens of 40 inch and over 180%

    then why the heck i can change mine to 1000(see pic below)

    You trolling author?

    or im too dumb to sense the sarcasm of the author of this post
    other solution is to increase the “slide bar” below  the right side of the browser screen to increase it further(max is 1000)

    Why not simply set the minimum font size?

    What a crappy site.

    I would also advise to use minimum font size, changeable at:
    Preferences(F12)->Advanced->Fonts

    Then pick appropriately and changed minimum font size bottom right ;)

    What you do think author? :)
    (By the way, where can I see who wrote this article?

    I hope you rename the article.

    Sounds like Opera increased the default size. Makes it easy to misread.

    You should change it but that depends if you want it to be misread intentionally *wink* *wink* *nudge* *nudge*

      Anybody finding the text too small on some sites the easiest & best option is to set the min font to larger in Opera preferences
