Open magnifier tool and try ctrl+scrol. It doesn't work. The short cuts for magnifier zoom is win (+/-) Make items on the screen appear bigger (Magnifier) I use full screen mode

to change the shortcut keys for magnifier search for it in start menu ,when it appears then right click it and select properties. and enter the keys of your choice in the shortcut window.although it will make it ctrl and alt then the key of choice by default.

i wouldnt change them though as you lose the shortcut keys to close it ,ie win and -.

also when the magnifier is open and in lens mode then pressing the win key and + zooms it, keep pressing + for more zoom

thanks for your tip. But. I don't even know how to fill it. There is only 1 space to fill. I want to set it in order to Zoom +/- = Ctrl + (scroll up/down). What have I to write in there? Thanks

I respect your opinion, but I would change it in order to improve my own user experience and personal workflow. If you know how to change and want to share it I would be really grateful. Thanks
