Benefit

With screen resolutions getting larger and larger, it seems text on the screen is getting smaller.  Sometimes there is very little consistency in font sizes, and sometimes you just need to make things bigger.  A lot of people default to decreasing screen resolution, but this usually makes things look distorted and you can’t fit everything on the screen.

To get over this, you can get used to quickly and easily zooming in and out of documents, web pages, spreadsheets, emails…pretty much anything.  Go ahead and try it out and see what you’ve been missing.
