OneNote 2010: Quickly Zoom In/Out the Notebook Section

Just like other note taking applications, OneNote supports multiple View modes that let you easily adjust the content on the screen. If you frequently switch between large and small display monitors, then you may require changing the view modes to get the full preview of the notebook page. Consider a situation where you need to switch between two display monitors with different resolutions; when you switch from high resolution display monitor to smaller one, then you need to adjust the OneNote notebook's view mode to adjust the content containers. OneNote offers two quick zoom levels including 75 % and 100%, along with Zoom Level drop-down menu to manually change the zoom level of the current notebook's page.
