I wish I could use Ctrl-+ to zoom into a page with PowerPoint.  Is there anyway to do this other than using a 3rd party tool?  (I can't install programs my laptop.)

Press CTRL and scroll the mouse button. It works here.

There are also zoom tools in the lower right of the screen.

Are you looking specifically for a keyboard solution?

yes I wanted to use the shortcuts found in Adobe tools, Ctrl+ (plus) to enlarge, Ctrl- (minus) to zoom out, & Ctrl-0 to make it 100% of it's size.

Unfortunately there's no macro recorder in PPT 2007 or 2010. Maybe one of the VBA experts will know if there's a way to do this and post the code.

I believe you may be aware of this shortcut manager add-in, but you mentioned you can't install programs on your system. If you can manage to talk your IT folks into installing it for you, there is Chirag Dalal's shorcut manager. http://officeone.mvps.org/ppsctmgr/ppsctmgr.html I know Chirag personally and can tell you it's a useful piece of software. You'd probably want to contact him to ensure that the zoom slider tools or an incremental zoom is available without having to record the code, because that type of zoom is not an option on the Ribbon -- it's on the status bar, and I don't know if the add-in accesses the items on the status bar.

Just a thought.

Thanks for the idea.  I may try that at home, but non-standard software at work just creates ire from management.
