Magnifying The Desktop With Visual Basic
(Page 1 of 6 )

A very handy application that's included with the Windows operating system is the magnifier, which you can find in the accessibility folder. Basically, the windows magnifier is designed for computer users who suffer from any form of vision impairment. It acts as a magnifying lens that enlarges a section of the screen when the mouse moves over it. I often use the windows magnifier myself, but I have found a few areas of the program that need a little improvement, that's why I decided to write my own magnifier.

In this article I will show you how easy it is to write your very own magnifier using Visual Basic 6.
