How to enable Tools > Zoom function in Dynamics NAV?

If you are a developer, most likely you have never had to ask how to enable Tools > Zoom function in Dynamics NAV, because you would normally be a SUPER user in development environment. And, if you have a SUPER role, you have access to this menu option anyway. However, if you are not a SUPER user, then it’s a different story…

If you click Tools, and you see that Zoom function is disabled,

you need to ask your Dynamics NAV administrator to provide additional permissions to be added to your user security settings. However, your system administrator, might not know how to do this… until now, that is! 🙂
