Resizing Objects from the Center (Excel, PowerPoint, or Word)
To resize an object from the center, hold down the Ctrl key
and drag one of the corners. Drag away from the center of the object to make it
larger, or toward the center to make it smaller. Try
it and you'll see what we mean.
To resize an object from the center and maintain its proportions, hold down the Ctrl
and Shift keys.
This works with ClipArt files, pictures, AutoShapes,
organization charts, and graphs.
