Hey, my name is Anders, and today we're going to talk about enlarging pictures in Google Chrome when you just hover your mouse over them. Now I've just opened up a new tab in Google and the first thing that I'm going to do is navigate to the Chrome webstore and we can either do this by clicking on this icon here or in our URL bar we can just click Chrome webstore. So we're going to go there and then we're going to search for hover zoom in the search box in the upper left hand corner of the webstore page. Now the first result that comes up will work just fine but you may want to try with a couple different ones. I have used Photo Zoom for Google Plus, Facebook and some other popular websites. Hover Zoom just in general works with most sites so that may be the one you want to use. If you decide Hover Zoom is the one you like, then just click on add to Chrome. It's going to come up with a dialog asking if you'd like to definitely add Hover Zoom which we're going to click add and then Google Chrome will let us know that Hover Zoom has been added to Chrome. Now, for just to go to a simple page such as Google Images, search for something nice like puppies. Now this usually automatically enlarges photos but now we actually can see these photos even larger just by mousing over, it pops up right in the middle of our Google Chrome page in a much larger size. So we can click on that, go to the website where it is. I mouse over that picture and it immediately becomes larger and kind of tracks over my mouse there which makes everything much easier. Say you want to go shopping on and you want to look at something a little bit more closely, you've just got to mouse over and you're immediately going to see that image in a more detailed way. My name is Anders, and today we talked about hovering over images and making them larger in Google Chrome.
