Windows 7: Screen Magnification

29 Jul 2012   #1

Windows Seven Premium
Screen Magnification

I used to be able to increase or decrease my screen magnification from an option that appeared in the right hand side of my sys tray, a + or - sign. (I am running Windows7 Home Premium) Since I have tried to alter the sreen resolution slightly myself, only to make things worse, this opotion has now disapeared.

Can anyone please tell me how to get it back??

Try doing a system restore to a date/time prior to the issue first appearing.

Hello RonBin79.

I guess this is your screenshot.

Are you talking about the area I have boxed ? if so, I also guess that you have answered earlier .... this is for MS office, works only when an office document is open and active. Otherwise not. Not in file browser or elsewhere.

It is not an windows function at all.

You can do a Control + to magnify the screen.

You can use the Magnifier which is in Accessories > Ease of Access. Pin it to the taskbar. You can stop it with WIN+Esc
