Magnifier is driving me crazy.
I would like to use Winkey + Num+ for something else.
Is there any way of uninstalling Magnifier.
I found Brinks recommendation to Jimbo at Annoying Magnifier glass feature -- turn off and disable
Vista forums will not allow me access to Magnifier - Turn On or Off - Vista Forums even when I am logged in.

Thank you

Hello Russell,

The Vista tutorial used a flash video that no longer works, and was removed.

You could may be able to use some 3rd party key remapper program (ex: SharpKeys) to help.
