I don't believe you can, unless you go in and tool with the system32 files which isn't the greatest idea. I think it's c:/windows/system32/magnify

Just curious, why would you want to permanently uninstall magnifier?

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!
