    There is a new function "page zoom" in IE7. I find it very useful and would
    like to add its shortcut to the page context menu. How should I do that?
    Thanks a lot!

    You are aware that it is on the bottom right hand corner of the status bar

    thanks Steve. :)

    yes, I'm aware of the button. But I would like to add it to the page context
    menu as well -- so that I can see page zoomed in IETab for Firefox, or any
    other program that uses IE control to display webpage.

    It's already added in Page dropdown menu on toolbar. Using IE7.

    Thanks Pat.

    Yes. I'm aware of that too. And that's why I think it shouldn't be too
    difficult to add the same menu to page context menu (e.g. right click menu).
    For my peculiar reason, I would like to do that. Anybody know? -- I suspect
    that I'll need to play with registry a little, but I'm not sure what's the id
    for page zoom menu item.

    This is what needs to be done to add to the right click menu:

    Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
    Navigate to the following branch:

    Create a new sub-key named ZoomLevelMenu
    Click the ZoomLevelMenu branch to select it
    In the right-pane, double-click (default) and its data to:

    Example: This is for Briefcase, not zoom

    Close Regedit.exe

    This is what I did find but I'm not sure if this where you default to.
    Hopefully someone that works with the registry will be along shortly to set
    it right.

    The HKey_Root for zoom level is Reg_DWORD 0x80000001 (2147483649)

    Thanks Pat. It's so close!

    The menu I'm looking at is something like
    "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\..."
    But I'm not sure where to go from there. :(
