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.
please add the zoom level and page layout
Is this right place to provide feedback that will have impact and fix the problem? Nothing happened in 5 years reporting this (basic) issue a - functionality i should say.

Has the product manager been fired yet?
It is an embarrassment that the ability to zoom was not included from the beginning.
It is an absolute disgrace that this glaringly obvious product failure has gone unaddressed for 4-5 years.
Do you guys at Microsoft need to hire somebody from Google to teach you how to do your jobs?

Please add this feature asap!! It's the very first thing I tried to do when using Excel Online. God I know why I switched to Mac...Microsoft you're are still so far away from your users...
Microsoft's usability team needs to test with a broader demographic:
- People over 40 who need reading glasses
- People sharing their screen on MS teams
- People working with very large spreadsheets, where much of the data needs to be visible
Zoom is such a basic feature for any application. Please add it, Microsoft!
I don't get it... should have been included in the very first version... When is this going to be addressed?

Really!? Your response is almost 4 years old with 1063 votes! Why is this still an issue?
it is very difficult if we need to share screen in a presentation

It's funny, because it seems that they don't bother using their own product. If they did, they'd recognize this as a major issue immediately. I find the same to be true for so many companies and their products.
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

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

Yes. This would be extremely beneficial!

100% agreed. Please add this!
put the +/- buttons for zoom level back.
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.
