How to zoom in on videos
« on: February 17, 2016, 06:27:33 PM »
I know how to zoom in using Ctrl + or -
I can also use the touch pad on the laptop.

Those solutions are not what I am looking for.  They zoom the whole page.

By accident I zoomed in on a video and the zoom was very powerful.  It zoomed in on about 10% of the screen.  I have not been able to figure out what I did.  I am using an HP laptop with windows 7

Not sure if this is what you're looking for or not.

Many, if not all, Youtube screens have a button in the lower right corner. Kind of a square bracket. Click it and the video goes into full screen mode. Press esc to exit full screen mode.

I know how to go to full screen.  What I did made what I guess to be 10% of the video expand to the full screen.

It was not particularly important at the time it happened, I could not figure out how to zoom back out either.  I is an interesting tool if I can figure it out or if someone can post a solution
