Is there any way to max out the retina display resolution then turn on zoom to see?

    I know it gets small at full resolution but in bootcamp on windows you can zoom 150% at full resolution and it is usable.

    Is there a way to do this?

    You could zoom in/out as necessary using ctrl+scroll gesture.

    Just incase anyone's interested, I think I found out the best way to do it.

    There is no across the board zoom like in windows, but fonts can be changed in each app which is good enough.

    Here's what changed:

    Chrome: zoom 125%

    imessage: changed fonts to 15

    email: couldn't figure it out :(

    calendar: changed zoom 3x so now fonts are larger

    stickies: zoomed in 3X so now fonts are larger

    And that's all I needed.

    I'm no expert on this matter, but couldn't you just scale your resolution?

    System Preferences > Display > Resolution > Scaled > Bigger Text
