Default How to zoom into the whole screen?

Howdy,
I was wondering if there is a way to zoom into the whole screen. Same as accomplished in any web browser by hitting the '+' key. And then navigate inside the magnified screen to focus for instance on a couple mixer tracks.
I am in an early learning stage and am using Reaper from my laptop.

have you got SWS extensions installed? Lots of extra zoom options in there.

No, I haven't. Should I google for SWS extensions?
Do they work only with Reaper or in general with any application?
Thanks.

SWS is REAPER only.

Thank you guys. SWS seems a powerful tool, but also seems a bit too much for me now. I guess I wll uninstall it for now.
BTW, how do I uninstall SWS? There is no such informatioin in the SWS pdf manual.

There's no need to uninstall it as you will very likely grow to use actions. That's what Reaper is all about. It should show up under Control Panel / Programs and features if you need to uninstall it though. It's really the right hand of Reaper.

It doesn't show up under Control Panel / Programs and features, but never care. You're right, I better keep it as long as it does not use computer resources.
Thanks.

Reaper is about you being able to customize your workflow. Once you get a few actions under your belt you will see the power. I like to make toolbar buttons so I don't have to remember keyboard shortcuts to them. It makes working very easy. Each of us has a unique workflow and once you see how you like to work you can come up with action combinations (custom actions to do this). Watch some of the fine Kenny videos and marvel at the POWER.

Here's one on actions
