Congratulations! You have successfully adjusted the screen resolution on your Mac, making it smaller and more suitable for your needs.

Zoom In and Out

If changing the screen resolution doesn’t give you the desired results, another option is to zoom in or out on your Mac screen.

  • Step 2: In System Preferences, click on “Accessibility”.
  • Step 3: In Accessibility, navigate to the “Zoom” tab.
  • Step 4: Enable the “Use keyboard shortcuts to zoom” option.

  • This method allows you to quickly adjust the zoom level of your Mac screen, providing a smaller or larger view as per your preference.

    Using Full-Screen Mode

    If you’re working with multiple windows and find it difficult to manage them all, using full-screen mode can help make your Mac screen smaller by focusing on one app at a time. Here’s how:

    • Step 1: Open the app you want to use in full-screen mode.
    • Step 2: In the top-left corner of the app window, click on the green maximize button.
    • Step 3: The app will now enter full-screen mode, making your Mac screen smaller by hiding other distractions.

    This feature is especially useful when you want to concentrate on a specific task without any distractions from other open applications.

    In Conclusion

    Making your Mac screen smaller can greatly enhance your productivity and make it easier to manage multiple tasks simultaneously. By adjusting the screen resolution, zooming in or out, and utilizing full-screen mode, you have various options at your disposal. Experiment with these methods and find what works best for you!
