Hello I use the magnifier in "all screen" default mode. I would like to know if I can zoom in and zoom out on a mouse gesture/shortcuts. Thanks

You can if your mouse has the functionality to do what you want.

Computer Mouse, Wireless Mouse, Bluetooth Mouse | Microsoft Hardware

This application looks pretty nifty though: http://www.magictoolbox.com/magiczoomplus/

You should be able to change the button assignments of the mouse in its control panel, just select an appropriate button (inc. wheel) for the function you want. Note that changes take place immediately.

If you haven't found the help you need, here are some 'work-arounds' using the Magnifier and your system settings:

To Magnify Entire Page: Start, Search pane, and type: magnifier. When it comes up click the plus (+) sign. The entire page will magnify. OR go to: Control Panel, All Control Panel Items, Ease of Access Center, Make Your Computer Easier to Use, Start Magnifier.

16. Magnifier – To Magnify a Certain Portion of the Screen - go to Start, Search pane, and type: magnifier. Click the program at the top. The Magnifier can be set to Docked Mode which places a re-sizable window at the top of the screen that follows the cursor. (To read more about Magnifier go to Start, click "Help & Support" on the right hand side, type in "magnifier.") Magnifier is actually located at: Start, All Programs, Accessories, Ease of Access, Magnifier.

Did you install a Logitech driver for this particular Logitech model?

If you have this driver installed, then go to the mouse properties in control panel, select logitech specific settings and assign zoom function to the wheel.

You may have to uncheck the Microsoft Office settings in the mouse control panel.

Magnify Part of Screen Permanently?
I like the Windows gadgets, but many of them are too darn small for me to use (like most of the CPU meters). Are there any programs that will let you magnify certain parts of the screen permanently? Thanks!
