Pan Quickly by Zooming

Pan 1-2-3, Pan 1-2-3…

When you are zoomed in on a large map, panning to another part of the map is cumbersome.

Here is the fastest way to pan to another part of a large map. This possibly only works well with newer faster computers. If you aren’t already a dab hand (finger) with the mouse wheel, then you will need to learn.

Holding down the Ctrl key;

  1. mouse wheel backwards to zoom all the way out,
  2. move the mouse pointer to the area you want,
  3. mouse wheel forwards to zoom in.

Editor’s note

I’m far from a dab hand with the mouse wheel but having mainly large maps I gave it a try. It’s great! Thanks Mark.
