Try going to Control Panel and click on the mouse icon. Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse. In the left column,move your cursor over the right side button click on the drop down and select magnify. Hopefully it will now work.

I had to move the magnify function to the left button because it was to sensitive on the right.

    I accidentally turned on the wireless 5000 mouse magnifier and can't get rid of the magnifier. How do I turn it off?


    Normal 0 The button on the left side of the mouse when pressed turns the Magnifier on/off. Just press it again and it should turn off.
    I kept turning it on accidentally so I went in the control panel and switched the Magnifier to the right side. I added that below so you can set your mouse buttons.

    Go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse icon. Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse buttons. In the Left column is the button settings. The bottom one is the Right Button, which is set for Magnify. Whenever you hit the Right Side button the magnifier will turn on. To turn it off, hit the Right Side Button and off it goes.

    Can't get magnifier off screen


    First of all make sure to update to the latest driver. The problem is, the side buttons are very easy to push without meaning to do so. Right click the mouse icon in your system tray and select "Mouse Properties" select the BUTTONS tab, then disable both the left and right side mouse buttons. Click on APPLY and then OK
