Having trouble reading very fine print nowadays? Maybe this free screen magnifier can be of help. Magnifixer by Blacksun Software is designed to aid the user by enlarging the screen by up to 40 times magnification. It is intended for individuals who may have trouble viewing regular-size texts and images, but it is also designed to help those that require very detailed views of lines of codes, for example, such as designers and developers.
Upon installation, the screen magnifier can be configured with ease. The user is able to select from a number of options that include customizing the size, location, and the zoom level to be displayed. Using the tool is as simple as placing the mouse to the area of the screen that you want magnified. We found the stay-on-top option to be a useful feature for quick access.
Magnifixer works well and is easy to use. If you're having trouble reading online, this is a cheap, effective tool that could help. We found no issues with the installation and uninstallation of the application.
From Blacksun Software:
Magnifixer is a fully custumizable screen magnifier utility. You can place it anywhere on your screen, make it any size you want and select a zoom level. Magnifixer will always show the area of your screen where the mouse cursor resides. It is the perfect tool for developers and designers, but also for people with viewing disabilities. This version now supports dual monitors. Magnifixer supports cursor tracking or fixed location view.
What's new in this version:
Version 3.2 has fixed window position on multiple screen setups.
- Potentially offers helpful features that aren't in the built-in Windows magnifier, like using the scroll wheel to zoom in. - Free
- While installing, it will install a useless add-on unless you opt out. Even after I opted out, it changed my browser's home page without permission.
- The program froze shortly after turning it on, and stopped following my cursor. I was unable to try out the features that set it apart from Windows Magnifier without it freezing. Before freezing, the program was jumpy and hard to follow.
