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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Maybe it's the new version (1.7), but this doesn't seem to save settings in the application folder. If not, it's not portable (settings aren't portable).

Midas on 2014-01-14 10:07

Settings aren't really portable, but in view of their number and the nature of the program, that's not really an issue, IMHO...

Vista compatibility.
Quote from the author's website:
"It can also work on Vista if you disable Aero."

kairozamorro on 2010-05-04 06:01

If you download 3.5 you don't even need to disable aero (it does that automatically and re-enables when you close the program).

This app is one of a kind. Not only does it do full desktop zooming where you can actually use the desktop, its completely free and portable. Take that pricey alternitives!

What makes this app so great is that it is portable light weight and absolutely requires no admin rights whatsoever to use. This enables the visually impaired to have equal access to a public computer, without having to request the installation of assistive software.

I really wish I had found this software sooner than I have. I'm now using it almost daily. I work on a lot of computers being a computer technician so the portability factor allows me to easily work on someone's machine.

AFAIK the configuration can be changed by right clicking
the tray icon and changing the settings, including the use
of the escape key.

Love this program but had serious slow down problems on to Vista Ultimate 32-bit machines. Still useful -- just had to only use keyboard controls rather than the ctrl+mouse-scroll.

PeterM on 2009-11-06 11:40

Regarding http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=19872

which stated "4. It does add itself to the start menu but you can right click and uncheck that option pretty easily."

I found that it put a link in the startup folder when it is first run (and settings.ini is empty). To be truly portable, the portable version should have this option OFF by default IMHO.

9.5/10 points.

I like this tool very much and use it all the time. It is my default color picker and window magnifier (window is resizable). It would get a 10/10 if it remembered window size and position from one session to another in an .ini file.

Despite what is written in the Synopsis above, I don't think that it does image grabbing.

Evan on 2007-12-31 05:12

@CD: You will have discovered by now that ZZoom offers you the option to copy an image of just its window content to the clipboard by pressing 'i' while the app is in focus. Clicking the '?' on the menu bar, one can see the command keys. This capture function is this app's weak point for me, and honestly I'm wondering how it saves settings between sessions. Anyone?

John Jimenez on 2009-01-21 05:35

My only issue with this app is that it does not work with Semi-transparent windows. This makes it a bit of a boon to use with screen rulers.
