Reset zoom level of Visual Studio to 100%

If you have ever been frustrated by an inadvertent zoom-in or zoom-out in Visual Studio, you probably know there is no convenient way in the IDE to reset the zoom level to 100%. Instead, the IDE requires you to “reset” via increments until you reach 100%.


These inadvertent zooms occurred often enough among the developers of Visual Assist that one of them created a more efficient way to reset. You can have access to the functionality by assigning a shortcut to VAssistX.ResetEditorZoom. Use Ctrl+0 if you want to be consistent with the reset commands in web browsers.

VAssistX.ResetEditorZoom works only within the scope of the text editor, and you assign a shortcut in the usual manner–via the options dialog of the IDE.
