Rather than create a VI to zoom in/out, design your UI to fit on the smallest screen resolution in use. Use tabs to separate controls/indicators that can be grouped. Have pop-ups to set parameters. Use menu items for rarely adjusted items.

Having a zoom feature just encourages laziness and poor UI designs.

I completely agree, but some times I would like to be able to get a complete picture of the VI that maybe I didn't make, and I don't know where some controls may be hidden far to the right or left. Sure the scroll bar gives an indication that some thing is over there.

Take a look at VIEW>Navigation Window (Ctrl-Shift-N) for an overall view of either the Front Panel or Diagram, but it only works in Edit mode (in the Development Environment).. not for executables.

This can help you find out where the errant cotrols/indicators are, fix it, and then save the VI so it doesn't happen in future.
