This video shows how to change magnification in the Microsoft Project timescale.
- [Instructor] If task bars and the timescale are too short or long, you can zoom in or out to get a better look. On the view tab, click the timescale down arrow and then choose the time unit. Project changes the lowest level of the timescale to that unit. To choose a specific zoom size, click the zoom magnifying glass icon and choose zoom. Select an option to zoom the timescale to that timeframe and click okay. If the schedule disappears, click the task tab and then in the editing section, click scroll to task. Let's go back to the view tab. You can click the entire project icon to show the complete project timeframe from start to finish. If you have tasks selected, click the selected tasks icon to display the date range for all those tasks. For even faster zooming, use the zoom slider at the bottom of the window. Using the zoom slider may set the timescale to an unusual time unit like three days.
