Q: How can I make the charts in the workbook bigger or smaller?

A: In the standard toolbar usually located at the top of Excel there is a white box that has a number and percentage listed. Normally this number is listed at 100%. You can change this percentage to a larger or smaller number to make what you are viewing larger or smaller. For example, change this number to 50% to view the screen at half size or 150% to view the screen at a larger size.
