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.

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.
