Zooming in, in Windows Photo Gallarey

I just got Microsoft Wireless 1000 mouse which came with my desktop package, i was just wondering, is the only way to zoom into a photo on Photo Gallery is to use the Zoom bar down the bottom, because i swear with the old mouse i could scroll and it would zoom in.

So can you only zoom in with the scroll bar or is there something wrong with my mouse? It scrolls fine on most other pages

Hi mate . I can zoom in a picture with mouse wheel if the document is active . If you are sure that the picture window is the active window and still it is not zooming in with the wheel, you may get it changed .

It doesnt work, while the picture window is active, but it works on all other programs such as IE or Explorer or a word Doc.

Do i have to enable it?

The mouse came from the Microsoft Desktop 800 package

So it scrawls perfectly, but not zooming in ?

As far as I know , these mice are not to be enabled . They works just fine when attached . I guess there is a problem . To be sure that your windows is problem free, you may have a SFC scan . In the mean time we may seek for expert opinions

You have to run from an advanced command prompt.

Start> In search box type cmd> Right click cmd.exe in results above and choose Run as administrator

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hi! Mitch,

Yes to #1, and No to #2.

From what I found https://www.microsoft.com/hardware/m...ures/zoom.mspx
It sounds like MS does not make a mouse with the zoom feature anymore. It is now located on the keyboard.

Probably the only way you could get it back would be to get a new wireless that has that feature.
Hey! Wait a minute....Do you still have the old mouse, does it still work? Why don't you just hook it back up?

I guess MS doesn't realize there are two types of users? Mousers, and Keyboarders.

That zoom feature to my knowledge has been a mouse feature longer than a keyboard feature. It would of been nice if they made the zoom for both.

well to anak, my keyboard doesnt feature the zoom button, only button for windows are calucator, play/pause, and voloume.

For Arc, im only 14 and i, i dont tend to help people, i just tend to come on here when im borad and want something to read or when i have a problem.

with the command promt thing i got the message saying it did not find any violations.

For the person who said use my old mouse, i would but it is wired, and im in year 10 and have the desktop in my room, with it being in my only desk, so the whole idea of my getting a wirless mouse and keyboard to have a tad extra room.

How control Dialogue boxes zooming/fading in and out?
With an Aero theme dialogue boxes, menus, and open program panels kinda zoom or fade into and out of sight when you open or close them. Is there a way to have them just appear and disappear without the animation and without messing something else up? Thanks all.

Zooming in Movie Maker
For some reason the zoom tools are disabled in my version of Windows Live Movie Maker (14.0), unfortunately none of the help files tell me why? It might just be that my video camera doesn't record enough pixels (or whatever they are called) but I'd like to know.
