There are many ways to adjust the zoom in Vivaldi.

Zoom with the slider on the Status Bar

Drag the slider on the Status Bar to the right to zoom in and to the left to zoom out the active page. Click Reset to revert zoom to the default value.

You can switch the slider for buttons in Settings > Appearance > Window Appearance by ticking the box for Use Buttons in Range Controls. This will affect all range controls in the browser UI.

Zoom with keyboard shortcuts

Use the Ctrl + / ⌘ + Keyboard Shortcut to zoom in and Ctrl - / ⌘ - to zoom out of a page. The shortcuts can be edited in Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts.

Alternatively, focus on the zoom slider on the Status Bar and use arrow keys to change the zoom level.

Pressing Home or End while the slider is focused will zoom the page to the minimum or maximum value (respectively).

To reset zoom to the default value, use the shortcut Ctrl + 0 / ⌘ 0.


Zoom with a mouse scroll

When Use Ctrl/⌘ + Scroll to Zoom Page is enabled in Settings (see image below), hold down the Ctrl / key and use the mouse scroll to zoom. On a touchpad hold down the same key and with two fingers slide either up or down.

When Use Ctrl/⌘ + Scroll to Zoom Page is disabled, then using the pinch zooming gesture on the touchpad, instead of rearranging the page and increasing font and other element sizes, will create an effect similar to using a magnifying glass (sometimes referred to as pinch-to-zoom).

Another option is to hover over the zoom slider on the Status Bar and use your mouse scroll or two finger slide on the touchpad to zoom.


Zoom from the Vivaldi menu

From menu (on Windows and Linux) > View select whether you want to zoom the page in or out, or reset the zoom to the default value.


Zoom every page from settings

Change the default zoom level of every page you visit by using the range control in Settings > Webpages Default Webpage Zoom.
