Add ability to Zoom in/out a workbook
Add the ability to zoom a workbook in the web browser, without zooming the entire browser window.
(2015-11-05 Dan [MS] - updated idea title and description to be clearer.)
Thank you all for all of your comments and votes supporting this suggestion.
We are now in the final planning stages towards starting the development of application zoom in the web version of Excel.
We’ll make sure to share more information and updates as we progress.
I have given up on using it, no way that they will ever fix it. I can't use it without the zoom in/out function.ಠ_ಠ

its hard to believe this isn't something that was included on day 1.

Yes. This would be extremely beneficial!
Mary Sullivan commented
100% agreed. Please add this!
I could not agree more with this. We want to be able to share the link with our service team and they can't see their schedule on their phones. Totally defeats the purpose of why we purchased Office365
It is a lovely function of your desktop app. The lack of zoom on the online app makes it a hassle to use.
My company recently migrated from Google to O365 and the loss in functionality is astounding- things like not even being able to zoom out so that I can see more than 5% of a spreadsheet at once- and the original request on here for this function is almost 4 years old!
There needs to be a separate function other than browser zoom (Ctrl+[+/-] or Ctrl+[Mouse Wheel]).
Browser zoom increases the size of the user interface (toolbars / ribbons / buttons etc). This is not acceptable when working on large data sets (UI too small) or for those with poor eyesight (UI too large).
I'm a Linux Sysadmin and have to use a remote Windows session to get the functionality I need out of office, especially Excel.

on one click in web outlook on excel file
when preview of the file shows
provide easy way to zoom in and out of the view of the workbook
ctrl+mouse wheel zooms in/out entire web browser,
it is not expected behaviour for average user
Is there still no way to zoom in/out of an excel worksheet using excel online??
@Cons - no, sorry, "Press CTRL + MouseScroll(up/down)" sets the browser zoom level and the interfaces inside the browser gets larger. This ask is to be able to increase the size of the grid, without increasing the size of the interface, just like you can do in Excel desktop app.
This feature is already existing. Press CTRL + MouseScroll(up/down).

All in the title. If the capability exists, it's not intuitively obvious.
Users should be able to adjust the view size (Zoom function on Excel) while viewing/editing a document on Sharepoint

The more I realize these basic functions are not included in excel online blows me away. I have HUGE spreadsheets, there is no way for me to see all my data? please change this asap.
We really need this update, it is very helpful to work with different tabs in one sheet
I often use Excel for my everyday needs. On my desktop or on the web it's been an amazing tool. However, my tables and graphs often take up substantial space and I can't always see them with out using my browser's zoom. The problem with that is that using my browsers zoom makes using the tools of Excel nearly impossible to use.
