I wish that when Mathematica is run the "front end" this default to 200%, and perhaps other things where you can not change, as there are directly in the menu.

Thank You

  • $\begingroup$ depending on your operating system the "x" just means you have changed the default setting -- it does not mean an error has been made $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 23, 2015 at 5:28
  • $\begingroup$ As Mike said, this is just a handy indicator you've changed a default, so you can quickly find those and reset (manually, or just click the X) if desired. $\endgroup$

You can effect the setting for the evaluation Notebook with:

SetOptions[EvaluationNotebook[], Magnification :> 2. Inherited]

To create a new Notebook with this setting you can use:

CreateNotebook["Default", Magnification :> 2. Inherited]

This can easily be made into a Button or Palette:

Button[
  "New 200% Notebook", 
  CreateNotebook["Default", Magnification :> 2. Inherited]
] // CreatePalette
