I am operating Excel 2016. "Ctrl + Alt + -" was my keyboard shortcut for zooming out "Ctrl + Alt + +" was my keyboard shortcut for zooming in. It was great for ditching the scroll wheel on the mouse. As of recently, it has stopped working and I cannot figure out why. Was wondering if anyone ran into this issue and found a solution. Thanks!

There are 5 issues that can cause that. In your web browser, search for: "excel zoom hotkeys not working"

Two of those commonly are:
1. Obviously, with a laptop, you may have to also press Shift to Fn key.
2. Another application might have hijacked the hot-keys.

A less likely one might have been a macro that reassigned them.

Thank you, unfortunately my issues are not related to:

1) Fn key due to laptop
2) Language settings
3) Macro

It might be another application but that is a little more difficult to locate. Any other suggestions are welcome.
