Little tip for Google Maps. If you use Google Maps you can zoom in and out through by clicking the two buttons (plus and minus) at the bottom right. In the old version of Google Maps there was also a slider to zoom in and out though with the new version of the map service this is no longer visible. If you found this slider pleasant to use then there is still a simple option to activate it in the new version.
Activation can be done by placing your cursor for a few seconds on the plus or the minus buttons. Then the option will come into the picture to activate the slider as shown below in the screenshot. After clicking, the slider on the screen can be hidden again the same way. The choice made will be saved by Google Maps.
