Windows 7: Starting magnifier automatically

Starting magnifier automatically

Several members of my family have sight impediments and it is becoming a real issue when logging onto the computer. Is there anyway to start the magnifier as the computer starts without having to navigate to the button that turns it on. Also, is there anyway to start it at a specific zoom measure. I have an administrator account on a Windows 7.

Magnifier Starts at Startup - Enable or Disable

I don't know if you can set it to a certain zoom and have it stay, you can test it with the little gear icon.
