Zooming In and Out in Power Query Editor

I am working on a very large table, so I would like to zoom out in Power Query Editor in order to quickly delete numerous columns. Is it possible to zoom in and out in the power query editor?

Hi,

 

I think there is no such function in Query Editor, but i have a workaround.

You can use 'Choose Columns' function:

Select the columns you want to keep:

After choosing columns, the result shows:

Hope this helps.

Old post, but there is a way to zoom in the power query editor:
Zoom in: "CTRL" + "SHIFT" + "="
Zoom out: "CTRL" + "SHIFT" + "-"
Works in Excel and Power BI.

Hi,

 

You can easily delete columns in Query Editor:

And i advise you using 'DirectQuery' connection mode to get the data.

The information you have provided is not making the problem clear to me. Can you please explain with an example.

Appreciate your Kudos.

I am referring to decreasing the magnification (the zoom) in the power query window in order to grab more columns at a time. I have a very wide table, so selecting columns manually takes time. The more I zoom out, the easier it is to use Shift to grab multiple columns.
