How to zoom in Microsoft Teams screen size?

Here’s a question we got the other day:

I use Microsoft Teams web and desktop versions over several shared desktops, laptops and tablet devices. One things that bothers me quite a bit is that fact that either Microsoft teams doesn’t fit the screen because the resolution is too large or sometimes the Teams app is so zoomed out that us practically impossible to read anything as the resolution is so high / large . Is there a way to set the Teams display settings so that those will fit my needs?

Thanks for your question. See our answer below; feel free to contact us in case of additional questions.

Increase or decrease Microsoft Teams screen resolution on web

Luckily, it’s pretty easy to adjust your screen resolution as per your preferences.

In both the Windows desktop and the web versions of Microsoft Teams you can simply use a few shortcuts:

  • Press the CTRL and + keys to zoom into your Teams App user interface.
  • Press the CTRL and – keys to zoom out your Teams App user interface.
  • Press the CTRL and 0 keys to return to the default Zoom ratio (100%).

Note for web users: you can use the key combinations outlined above to adjust the resolution of any website that runs in a browser window. Note that if you move from Teams to another website, the resolution settings of Teams will remain and won’t affect those of the newly opened website. Teams resolution settings will need to be manually updated as needed (unless your clear the browser cache).

In case that you use the Teams desktop version, you can use the key combinations outlined above, or simply hit the Settings and more button (…) and then adjust the Zoom right from the dialog as shown below:
