Cursor is a "box that magnifies"

It sounds as though you have turned on the magnifier accidentally. Go to the start button,than all programs,accessories,accessability, then click on magnifier. That should turn it back off.

    I get to the accessability part and can't find the word anywhere. So this does not help my situation.

  • Kar Thar May 19, 2013

    A better answer would have been to press the windows logo button (bottom row) and esc button at the time. Thanks anyway..

Can zoom in or out when in full page mode anymore, just started yesterday aug 10/11


there is a pretty obvious bug when using 'Marquee Zoom' (Alt+5) in the full screen mode (F11). When you press 'Ctrl' to toggle 'Zoom In' and 'Zoom Out' (changing the little magnifying glass cursor from + to - and back again), it sticks with 'Zoom Out' and refuses to toggle back to 'Zoom In'. And then the only way to recover 'Zoom In' is to exit full screen mode, whereupon 'Ctrl' regains its toggling power and everything is back to normal

Hi...I have an Acer monitor Model# X193wb,,,it appears that everything is magnified ...my cursor ...everything...how do i adjust the monitor to get it back to normal size again...I have tried...


Hi Alice,
from what I have found on the web: This model features a 1440x900 native resolution
I am guessing you that you or a game has changed the resolution to something other than 1440x900.
Assuming you have Windows 7: If you right click on the desktop in an empty spot ie not on a folder or icon, you should be able to see a selection called Screen Resolution, and then after that pulldown box next to the word "Resolution" that allows you to change your resolution to 1440x900. I am assuming a game has changed your resolution to something like 640x480 or something else like 800x600.
If you aren't using Windows 7 go to Start, Control Panel, Display and you should be able to change your display settings there.
Feel free to ask some questions or help from me.
Regards,
Steve

Using outlook or word with Windows 7 PC, font size will suddenly change. Why? Magnifying glass pops up, unasked, by cursor. Annoying. Why? thanx for any help


Hello!

It sounds like Windows Magnifier is turned on, which is one of the tools available through the "Ease of Access Center".

To quickly exit the Magnifier (for the time-being), press the Windows key + Esc simultaneously. This key combination toggles the Magnifier on/off. (Windows key has the Windows Logo on it, usually between the left-sided "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys on typical keyboard).

To disable the Magnifier altogether:
Ensure you are logged in as an administrator or user that is a member of administrators group.
Click "Start", then click "Control Panel". Then click a blue & white icon labeled "Ease of Access Center". Look below the initial "Quick access to Common Tools" boxes at top of page, to a section called "Explore all settings". Click on the link "Make the Computer Easier To See", which brings up the section which pertains to the visual display. At the bottom of that page, there is a section labeled "Make things on the screen appear larger, below it a link, then a check box "Turn on Magnifier". Uncheck this box, and ensure nothing else on the page is checked. Click "Apply", then click "OK".

This should turn off the magnifier completely for the system. For future reference, should you ever need the Magnifier tool, you will see a small magnifying glass icon on the taskbar - click that to open the Magnifier toolbar, and you can then set how the magnifier works and where it works, and whether or not it follows mouse movement or is docked. Handy sometimes, as things on some screens can be rather difficult to read when print is especially tiny. If you have the issue of not being able to read icons or their labels on the desktop, or on the system as a whole, you can adjust this by opening "Control Panel" and then "Display" - where you can set the screen text and icon sizes to "small" "medium" or "large" to suit your needs - it's much easier and alot less annoying than Magnifyer can be - just something to keep in mind should you ever need it.

Hope this info helped you! If for some reason you have any additional problems, or get stuck, please come back and let us know...best of luck!

Magnifier doesn't work


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.
