If you are using Windows, then there should be a little 100% line on the 
bottom right that you can use to change magnification.

For other OS's, if that option doesn't exist, then a more tedious method 
is to use the option inspector.

1. Start the option inspector
2. Change applicability to Selected Notebook.
3. Lookup Magnification
