SUMMARY: Four ways to zoom in or out of satellite views of the planet in Google Earth.
When using Google Earth to view the world, there a few easy ways to zoom in or out:
1. Near the top-right of the display, click on the "+" button to zoom in or the "-" button to zoom out. If these buttons are not visible, move your mouse to the compass near the top-right of the display.
2. Click and hold the "thumb" slider and drag it between the "+" and "-" buttons to zoom in ("+") or out ("-").
3. Hold down the right-mouse button. Move your mouse down to zoom in or up to zoom out.
4. If your mouse has a wheel, scroll down to zoom out or up to zoom in.
