If you want an easier way to access Windows' screen-magnifier executable, then this small utility will meet your needs. 1ClickZoom, with its basic interface, points to magnify.exe and presents nine levels of magnification, three types of tracking options (mouse cursor, keyboard or text editing), and the ability to invert colors. A magnification window, whose size you can adjust, will open on top of your normal windows. Publishers of this application admit to a few glitches that we did encounter in testing: mouse movements will slow during magnification and content in larger windows may be blocked by the magnification screen. Additionally, we couldn't figure out how the text-editing option works (the help file provided no clues) and the placement of our desktop icons was permanently moved to accommodate the magnification screen. Despite the glitches, users with visual disabilities will appreciate the easy access to Windows' built-in magnification program.
