Q: How can I zoom in or out while browsing?
The touchpad supports pinch to zoom. Press your index finger on an empty space and hold it there, now press and hold your other index finger on another empty spot, now move your right most finger towards the clock, you should zoom in (letters get larger) and if you scroll it back to where it was, downleft, you will notice you are zooming back out. Play around with it until you understand it a bit, then try using one hand only. You will notice several articles are smaller than they should be and leave a gray screen on the sides. for example on this post if you want to make the font larger, simply double click somewhere within this post. The TP should autozoom for you.
