Many screen capture programs do use this feature. It is most likely part of that.

You could always ask the guy on youTube.

I did, hopefully he answers. Didn't mean to come off as a know it all, lord knows how inexperienced I am with video editing software. I'll post back if I ever get an answer from that guy with how he did that.

It accomplishes what you want to do but I don't know whether it's in a format you'll like.

Make items on the screen appear bigger (Magnifier)

this is more what your after though i think

Well, I tried Zoomit, as soon as I clicked "magnify" my whole screen went black and that was all she wrote. I guess I'll pass

I just tried it with the Ctrl+1 and it zoomed for me, not real smooth, but it worked.

I dunno what happened but it wasn't cool. I had to restart in safe mode and do a system restore. I'll just learn to live iwith the issues until I get my 26" LED monitor

WIndows Key + Plus (+) Key. Built into Windows 7.
Or Search for Magnify in the Start Menu.

And yes, the built in Magnify can zoom the whole screen. Does so by default.

I guess I'll give magnifier another shot and see how that works out, no harm in that
