Moo0 Magnifier

By Moo0 Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 15, 2010

Every now and then we find ourselves squinting at a tiny image or too-small text on our computer screen. When you need something to be just a little bit bigger, but don't want to go to the trouble of changing your screen resolution, use Moo0 Magnifier. This deceptively simple program is a useful tool for quickly and temporarily magnifying what's on your computer screen.

The program doesn't have an interface to speak of; it appears unobtrusively as an icon in the system tray. Users simply access the settings by right-clicking on the icon and select the key that they want to use for magnification from six options. We chose the Control key. Then users simply continue using their computer as usual. When something needs to be enlarged, hit the chosen key, and the screen zooms in on the area where the mouse cursor is for as long as the button is held down. While the program is magnifying, users can pan around the screen using their mouse. Releasing the key takes the screen back to normal. That's really all there is to it. It's a very simple utility, but very useful for both those with poor vision and users who encounter hard-to-see elements every now and then. The program has no Help file, but this is not a significant drawback given its simplicity.

Moo0 Magnifier is free. The program installs politely but leaves a Start menu item and folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
