Quickly Zoom In/Zoom Out in Word, Excel, Internet Explorer, Firefox..

Seems like a standard shortcut for zooming in or out in applications; at least in quite a few important applications like MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint, Internet Explorer & Firefox.

How to use the shortcut?
Hold down the Ctrl key of the keyboard and use the scroll wheel of your mouse. Scroll down or up to zoom in or zoom out. It's that easy!
Quite handy if you hate clicking the mouse to zoom in or out.

Wow, thanks! After all the years of using the toolbar. I had a feeling there must be an easier way.
