Try holding control and using the scroll wheel

or if this is a system wide enlargement,

Control Panel - Display  (make an adjustment there)

Is it an Adobe problem or a Windows Problem.

For Adobe, View and Zoom to set size (may depend on Version).

For Windows, as per prior post, and also, in Display, choose text size and then look at the various setting for each type of text size.

HI John, Thanks for your input.....But.....

She is working and does something to enlarge the View...

This is not a display resolution issue.

With a Mouse attached I would simply hold down Control button and move the

Mouse wheel forward.

What I am looking for is how to do it on the Laptop Keyboard without a mouse attached.

Is this Adobe?  Must be because you said not a display issue.

So in the Adobe Document, Ctrl 0, 1, 2 and Y set zoom size. Look in the Zoom options for the keyboard options.

In addition to this .... Hold down Ctrl key then tap 0 (zero)
to resets the zoom to normal (this works in many programs)
