Editors' Review

OneLoupe from programmer Nenad Hrg is a free screen magnifier. It's compact, completely portable, and very easy to use. It's great for visually impaired users, but anyone who wants to zoom in on a part of their PC screen can enjoy it.

We love seeing old-school tools that pack a lot into a miniscule download, but at 19.5KB, OneLoupe is smaller than the ReadMe files for some applications and is probably the smallest program we've tested that boasts full Windows 7 64-bit compatibility. As portable freeware, OneLoupe requires no formal installation; just click the extracted program icon and it runs. OneLoupe installs a System Tray icon; right-clicking it calls up a properties dialog with quite a few options, while a left click opens the OneLoupe magnifying window. This is a rectangular pane with small crosshairs at the center for dragging and placing it. Whatever you drag the magnifying pane over is magnified: text, images, and icons. Turning our mouse's scroll wheel fine-tuned the centering; typing 1, 2, 3, and so on zoomed in the magnification. Clicking on the magnifying pane closed it. Clicking Full Screen on the properties menu or clicking F11 while the magnifying pane is active toggles full-screen magnification that was actually quite easy to navigate around in, thanks to the centering crosshairs. We clicked F11 again, and normal operation resumed. There's a Hotkey combo to activate OneLoupe, too: L-Win+Esc. We typed it, and the magnifier appeared instantly. The Help file lists many other Hotkey combinations.

Screens are getting bigger and sharper all the time, which means the print is getting smaller and smaller as well as obscured by just having a lot more stuff in the view. OneLoupe takes up so little space that it's a wonder it functions at all, let alone as well as it does. We highly recommend it as an accessory for every Windows desktop.
