How will this help?

This detailed article will guide on how to use the zoom function with precision on BlueStacks.

This feature is very useful in strategy games like Rise of Kingdoms and State of Survival, where keeping an eye on the smallest of details on the map can make a huge difference to your in-game progress.

How can I zoom in/zoom out on BlueStacks?

There are two ways to use the zoom function on BlueStacks:

  • Zoom with precision to any point on the screen
  • Zoom to the center of the screen

Zoom with precision to any point on the screen

This type of zoom lets you zoom in at a particular point on the game screen, based on where your cursor or mouse pointer is currently located.

Watch the video below to know how to use it.

Please follow the steps below to use this feature efficiently:

1. Launch your favorite strategy game on BlueStacks. For presentation purposes, let’s play Rise of Kingdoms.

2. Once the game starts, place your cursor or mouse pointer at the point where you wish to zoom in. Now, press and hold the CTRL key and scroll your mouse wheel. These key controls cannot be changed.

Scrolling the mouse wheel downwards will zoom in, with your cursor as the point of focus. Scrolling the mouse wheel upwards will zoom out, with your cursor as the point of focus.

The two images below show how zoom-in and zoom-out keep your cursor (marked inside the red box) as the focus of the zoom function.

Zoom to the center of the screen

1. Launch your favorite strategy game on BlueStacks. For presentation purposes, let’s play Rise of Kingdoms.
