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. You can change any of the button settings by clicking on the drop down.
Hope this helps. Bud

You don't say what browser you're using?
In internet explorer or firefox, hold ctrl key and press + for bigger and - for smaller.

If you installed the software that came with your mouse, there will be a shortcut on your desktop to the microsoft wireless laser mouse configuration. Double click on this shortcut. In the window that opens, at the very bottom, there are options for both the left and right side buttons. In the drop down window, select "Disable" for both.

All the buttons are programable and easily accessed through the mouse icon in the startup menue.
