This one is great. Unlike the other magnifier in the database ("OneLoupe"), it can also magnify constantly changing values on the display (OneLoupe sticks to the first value when moved over a changing field). I use Magnifixer to magnify the constantly changing display of a stopwatch ("1Time", also in the database), so I can check the watch when I'm doing something several metres away from the screen.

Note that additional settings, including the size and level of the default zoom view (2x zoom in a 600x150 pixel window) can be modified after the initial launch via the OneLoupe_uc.ini file

The menu system is a little odd but it's got a lot of cool functionality and tweaks for a small zoom program.

ZoomIt Portable v4.5

Midas on 24 Apr 2014

ZoomIt provides three useful tools for almost any presentation including a screen zoom, annotation tool, and break timer. The zoom option helps focus on a specific point or part of the screen while the annotation tool can help emphasize or edit what's shown (press ctrl+s to save a screenshot).

The program includes customizable hotkeys, zoom levels, two different kinds of zoom (a "live" zoom as well as a passive read-only view), and a variety of different annotation features.

ZoomIt Portable is a version of Zoomit that saves settings to the local folder.

Been using this a lot in screen sharing meetings and demonstrations. Works well, but often get a "didn't shut down properly" message and have to restart on Win7x64. Very lucky to have it.

Virtual Magnifying Glass is designed for visually-impaired and others who need to magnify a part of the screen. Unlike most similar programs it does not open a separate window for the magnification but instead puts a movable magnifying glass on screen.

DesktopZoom v3.5 (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=957#comments) stays magnifying when you click on an item.

AdrianK_IT on 2015-05-26 13:13

I have had to use Desktop Zoom for real recently after an eye operation, and have uninstalled it. It would always fairly quickly lead to complete system lockup on my Win 7 Home Premium PC, mouse and keyboard completely useless, no pssibility to launch Task manager, hard shutdown the only option.

Mousinity v1.2.2.6

Checker on 15 Mar 2014

Mousinity creates an infinity effect for your cursor when it reaches the edges of your screen. For example if you go to the top of your screen, your mouse will appear on the bottom, right-to-left, etc. This is especially useful for large screens.

Note: The program has no icon or taskbar item so when you want to close the application, run Mousinity again and select 'yes'.

A 64-bit version is also available (within the folder).
