Wrike Desktop App (Windows)
One BIG wish list item for the Windows desktop app. I love the fact that it can be run independently of my browser, but the browser allows me to CTRL+ or CTRL- to zoom in and out in the dashboards/lists, while the Windows app (apparently) offers no such functionality.
This can be a real bummer when trying to see wide dashboards. It can be addressed by changing Windows to a custom Zoom factor, but that causes problems when docking/undocking with multiple displays and the like.
So - my wish list item is to add a Zoom In / Zoom Out function under View, AND to make that function available via keyboard shortcuts.
Hi Alan, thank you for this! That's a good point, I frequently zoom in and out in the browser as well. Thanks for bringing this up and posting it here!
This is definitively needed. For the youngest eyes on my team, the font size is ridiculously big and wasteful. Font size / Zoom level is a way to support diversity: not everyone is 20/20.
I'd like the same thing for OSX as well!
Hi all, thanks for the detail and feedback here. I can understand the need for this so I've made the Product Team aware of this post and once I have new information I'll be sure to pass it on to you here.

Without the zoom function the app is unusable as it occupies all of the screen estate with very little information and lots of the application.
This became an issue within ten seconds of installing the app so it's quite surprising that the app went public without this function.
Uninstalling the app until this is resolved.
Has there been on progress on this front since April?
The ability to zoom in and out to enlarge the size of tasks, fonts, etc. is pretty important for me to be able to get a big picture and detailed view of very large projects/tasks
Hi, as I sail through all the posts about Wrike's desktop app, none of them seem to link to where it can be downloaded. Even the one complaining about the lack of a link appears resolved without posting a link. Please help?
@Willie Hi, sorry for the long reply here. Our Help Center article has the instructions. In short,
The file is downloaded to your computer, and you can follow the prompts to finish installing the app.
Please let me know if you have any questions 👐

I just started trying to use the Desktop app because it's a way I can separate Wrike from my over-abundant tabs in my browser. I find myself wanting the desktop app to function more like a web browser. The ability to zoom the page as Alan described it would be a welcome addition.
