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.

Thanks for your feedback! We’re reviewing your suggestion. Remember, the more votes a suggestion gets, the more likely it is that we’ll do it.
I wish i could leave but my stupid company forces us to use this ****. google is a million times better in every way.
MS is not listeng to us. Let's move to Google documents.!

People suggest to use the Browser's zoom function. (Ctrl+scroll)
However, this is not a solution, because this will also enlarge the UI of Excel and not only the worksheet!
Hence, if you zoom a lot, 80% of your screen will be the Excel UI, and not your actual Worksheet.
Please fix this. Thanks

ctrl + scroll works for Excel Online
zooming out makes the UI impossible to use

just add it to the view tab pls. took me an hour to give up, as i did not believe it does not exist
My eyes are bad and it would be helpful to be able to zoom in without zooming everything in the browser.
Anonymous below, that's great if you want your window to get smaller... but its not zoom on a sheet.
I have found that I have to store my SS online then open in the 'real' Excel...
Really don't know why we give feedback, they obviously don't read it and really don't care.

I like to have one excel sheet on desktop, and one online when doing data entry so I can scroll without clicking over, and clicking back. My main problem is I can make the numbers nice and big on the desktop option, but left squinting on online.
Yes PLEASE ADD! I have a large timeline I view and when I zoom out the menus become ridiculously small. I just want the WORKSHEET to zoom- not the entire browser window!

Please Please Please add this to Excel online. With the movement going to cloud based applications I tend to use Excel online more than I do actual Excel. Not having this as an option adds extra steps to my workflow (save copy locally, edit return to SharePoint) multiple times a day and is creating a bottleneck.
I have an excel sheet that is shared online that immensely limited because excel can’t zoom out online (iPad)
I agree, being able to zoom in the web browser would be an excellent feature.

Good morning, I recently opened a ticket with Microsoft in relation to being able to zoom the contents of an Excel Online document because at the moment, according to what I have been told is not available.
For me it would be of great help to have such functionality since to visualize documents with great information it is not feasible not to have it.
Adrian I think you have missed the point, Ctrl + or Ctrl – increases/decreases the size of the screen, not the spread sheet.
Adrian Osborn commented
You can Ctrl + or Ctrl - and it works fine
Can't believe that this feature is missing..
This is ridiculous that it takes people to "vote" to allow a simple "zoom in/out" on a workbook. If this is not going to happen can an admin please notify us so we can explore moving to other platforms?
