    Back up all data.


    Triple-click anywhere in the line below to select it:


    defaults write -app Safari WebKitPDFScaleFactor -float 1.5


    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard (command-C).


    Quit Safari. Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:


    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)


    ☞ In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.


    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.
