Are you struggling to make the Safari screen smaller on your Mac? You’re not alone! Many people find it difficult to adjust the size of their browser window, especially on their Macs. Fortunately, there are several ways to make your Safari screen smaller on Mac.

The first way to make your Safari window smaller is to adjust the resolution or zoom. To do this, click on ‘View’ in the top left of the browser and select either Zoom In or Zoom Out. If you’re using a webpage on your iOS device, tap the View Menu button in the address bar (labeled as two A’s (AA)) and then tap either the large A on the right to increase the size or the small A on the left to decrease it.

Another way is to press three keys together: Option, Command, and Minus sign (-). This will zoom out and make your Safari window smaller.

Finally, if you want more control over adjusting the size of your browser window, you can open System Preferences by clicking on the Apple icon at the top-left corner of the screen. Select Displays and then drag the slider for the “Resolution” setting according to your preferences. You can also select the “Scaled” option and choose one of the recommended resolutions listed below it which should work well with your Mac display.

Making your Safari screen smaller on Mac is easy once you know how! Whether you adjust the resolution or zoom, use those three keys together, or open System Preferences, any of these methods will help you customize your browser window size without much effort.

Making Safari Window Smaller on Mac

To make the Safari window smaller on Mac, you can adjust the resolution or zoom level. To do this, open Safari and click ‘View’ in the top left corner of the browser. Then, select ‘Zoom Out’ to reduce the size of the window. If you need further adjustment, select ‘Actual Size’ from the same menu to return to the default resolution settings. You can also use keyboard shortcuts such as Command (?)+ and Command (?)- to quickly zoom in and out.

Removing an Enlarged Screen on a Mac

To get rid of an enlarged screen on a Mac, you can press the three keys Command, Option, and 0 (zero) at the same time. This should immediately return your screen to its normal size. If this does not work, you can also try clicking the green maximize button in the top left corner of your window. Additionally, you can try using the zoom options in the View menu; click View > Zoom Out to reduce the size of the window, or View > Actual Size to reset it back to its original size.

Resizing a Window Screen on a Mac

Resizing a window screen on a Mac is easy. You can either do it manually or use keyboard shortcuts. To resize a window manually, simply click and drag the edges of the window to make it larger or smaller. Double-clicking any of the edges will cause the window to expand to fill the entire screen.

Alternatively, you can use keyboard shortcuts for more precise control over the size and shape of your windows. To resize a window from any corner, hold down the Option key and then press ‘+’ or ‘-’ (plus or minus) to increase or decrease its size respectively. To move a window from one side of the screen to another, hold down the Option key and then press an arrow key (up, down, left, right). This will move the window in that direction accordingly.

Troubleshooting Safari Zoom Issues

Your Safari browser may be zoomed in because you have changed the default zoom level. To change the default zoom level, click Safari in the menu bar > Preference > Websites > Page Zoom. You can then set a default zoom level for other websites using the drop-down menu labeled When visiting other websites. Additionally, you can manually change the zoom level for websites you currently have open. It is also possible that an extension or website has been programmed to make your browser appear more zoomed in than it normally would be. In this case, try disabling any extensions you are using and restarting your browser.

Changing the Default Safari Size

To change your default Safari size, first, open Safari and navigate to the website you would like to adjust the size of. In the top menu bar, click Safari > Settings for This Website. A window will appear with a variety of settings you can adjust. Select the current zoom setting next to “Page Zoom” and click your desired setting. Once you have adjusted the zoom to your preference, close out of this window and refresh the page. Your changes should now be visible on the website. You can reset your default Safari size whenever you’d like by repeating these steps.

Unzoom Safari on Mac

To unzoom Safari on your Mac, open the Safari app and go to Safari > Settings. On the left side of the window, click Websites. On the right side of the window, click Page Zoom. Select all websites listed under Configured Websites, then click Remove to clear the list. This will reset any zoom settings that have been applied and return your webpage to its original size.

Resizing a Mac Screen to Its Normal Size

If everything on your Mac screen appears huge, it could be because the Display Resolution is set too high. To fix this, you can go to the Apple menu > System Preferences > Displays and then choose a lower Display Resolution. You can also choose the Default for display or the Scaled option, which should adjust the resolution automatically for you.
