Editors' Review

+

This application magnifies your screen, although it is somewhat awkward to maneuver. DesktopZoom has three operational modes. First, it provides an adjustable magnifying window that trails your mouse movements, which at times can be difficult to read.

The second mode magnifies a fixed window, and the third mode magnifies the entire desktop, though they seem to provide the same basic functioning when employed. In both of these states, you constantly have to slide your mouse to read the opened window. However, DesktopZoom does allow you to adjust the zoom percentages.

Once you click Start, its humdrum interface transforms into a small toolbar that allows you to zoom in or out with a few clicks. Though it provides nothing groundbreaking, this free magnifying tool can still prove useful in the right situation.

    "Best free Screen Magnifiere / Zoom tool I've found."

    April 17, 2011   |   By bk243

    Version: DesktopZoom 3.5

    Pros

    - Best free Screen Magnifier / Zoom tool I've found after trying many
    - Does what it says on my old PIII / XP backup system
    - Optional Speech plugin (haven't tried this tho)
    - Works inside zoom window where all of the others I've tried did not

    Cons

    - Slows down my old PIII / XP system a bit
    - UI could be more intuitive & it took me a while to figure out how to minimize/ maximize it

    Summary

    - Best free Screen Magnifier/ Zoom tool I've found after trying more than a dozen.
