How to Magnify Your Desktop
Works with all Windows versions

Dear -,

Welcome to the 23rd week of Solvusoft’s free Windows tips and tricks. This week we will show you how to use Magnifier, a useful tool that enables you to enlarge a part, or entire screen so you can see the words and images better. It comes with a few different settings, so you can use this tool whichever way suits you best.

Using Magnifier

Magnifier is very easy to work with. You can open and close it very quickly, so it's convenient tool when you need it and it's out of your way when you don't. You can open Magnifier tool using a keyboard in a following way:
  • Press Windows logo key and "+" (plus sign).
  • To zoom out, press Windows logo key and "-" (minus sign).
Magnifier will open in Full-screen view unless you change the settings.
You can also open Magnifier tool using touch or a mouse. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings. If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings. Tap or click Ease of Access, tap or click Magnifier, and then move the slider under Magnifier to turn it on. Magnifier will open in Full-screen view unless you change the settings.

How to close Magnifier
  •  Press the Windows logo key + Esc.
You can also tap or click the Magnifying glass icon, and then tap or click the Close button on the Magnifier toolbar. There are three Magnifier modes:
  • Full-screen mode. In full-screen mode, your entire screen is magnified. Depending on the size of your screen and the zoom level you choose, you might not be able to see the entire screen at the same time.
  • Lens mode. In lens mode, the area around the mouse pointer is magnified. When you move the mouse pointer, the area of the screen that's magnified moves along with it.
  • Docked mode. In docked mode, only a portion of the screen is magnified, leaving the rest of your desktop unchanged. You can then control which area of the screen is magnified.
If you want to have Magnifier always at your fingertips, you can pin it to the Start screen or taskbar. Some people want to change the clarity or size of the words and images on the screen. If this is what you want to do, you can use the app to zoom in on a page or change your screen resolution.
