I just started using Ubuntu. I really liked how I could just zoom in on any point on the screen using the touchpad in macOS. It worked in certain places like chrome or safari. I want to know if there is a way of doing that in Ubuntu as well. I know how I can zoom in on a page but I want to zoom in on the screen using touchpad in chrome. Kind of like a magnifying glass.

    @Terrance I don't think that's the same as it zooms in the page. I want to instead zoom in on the screen without changing page zoom.

  • The only one you can try that is built in is go to Settings -> Universal Access then enable Zoom. But it is either on or off that I can see and I can't see if you can enable a keyboard / mouse shortcut for it. help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubuntu-help/a11y-mag.html.en
