Virtual Magnifying Glass is designed for visually-impaired and others who need to magnify a part of the screen. Unlike similar programs it does not open a separate window for the magnification but instead puts a movable magnifying glass on screen.
- New, much improved dynamic mode, works in Windows 2000+, but on Vista+ requires turning Aero off. For more information please read here: http://magnifier.sourceforge.net/#dynamicmode
- New, improved and smaller Mac version
- Supports Windows 98+, Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X
- To turn Aero OFF before using the Dynamic Mode in Windows just go to the "Start Menu" and select "Run" and then type: Rundll32 dwmApi #104
The best glass magnifier ! Great !
Superb tool, simple and easy to install. Thanks a lot!
magnifier works great
great program magnifier, thanks.
This would suit my needs perfectly if only... the magnifying rectangle could extend from the mouse cursor at the top left instead of from the mouse cursor in the centre (A feature request, please!... make this a tick-box option!) For reading long lines of text starting at the left of the screen... with the width at 1600 pixels the magnifier reaches across the whole screen... but I end up magnifying to the left of where I want and not extending fully across the screen. ie. at double magnification I would expect to see half of the real-screen from the left edge (magnified to full width virtual screen) but I get quarter of the screen magnified to half width, with the other half of the magnifier lost off the edge.
very good project, thanks
