How to Change Default Zoom Setting of PDF Files

Home > Change Default Zoom Setting of PDF

PDF files offer a simple and highly-compatible platform for creating, sharing, and storing digital information. However, some aspects of PDF files can make usability less than desirable. For instance, PDF files that are created with small viewing settings force users to squint while reading, which negatively affects user experience.

For this specific problem, one of the solutions is to change the zoom settings using the magnifying glass that comes on toolbars on most PDF tools. In this article, I will tell you how to change default zoom setting of PDF files without having to adjust the zoom settings each time you access the file.

With the file uploaded, navigate to "File > Preferences > General" (selected by default). The sub-window gives displays different options by default, including startup and display settings.

Under the "Display" section, click the drop-down options menu titled "Default Zoom" and select the appropriate zoom setting.
