The difference between zoom levels is too great...we have dedicated a large screen monitor to display a desired map, and one zoom level's display of that map covers only about 60% of the monitor, while the next higher zoom level of the desired map exceeds the boundaries of the monitor, perhaps about 110% of the monitor. If I knew how to change the granularity of the zoom levels, I could enable a display between the two current levels.

Are you talking about a web map such as the one on If so does zooming the browser content with ctrl+ and ctrl- help?

There is limited options to changing the zoom level on the main OSM map on However the data is freely available for everyone to use to make their own map. You could use Merkaator to generate a map locally, or several companies provide WMS, meaning you can use arbitrary zoom.
