Zooming in on Google Maps can be done in three ways by using the mouse or keyboard of a computer. The first method uses icons placed within the Google Maps user interface, the second uses a keyboard shortcut, while the third uses the scroll button of the computer's mouse.
- Use the onscreen icons
Press the "+" icon located in the bottom-right corner of the map to zoom in on the center of the displayed map area to zoom in.
- Use the mouse scroll
Use the mouse scroll button to zoom into a map by rolling the scroll in an upwards motion.
- Use a keyboard shortcut
Press the "Command" and "+" keys simultaneously in Mac OS to zoom in on a Google Map. With Windows OS, use the "CTRL" and "+" buttons to zoom in.
