Windowsmagnifier.exe - options grayed out (this is urgent!)
by jeffk - 4/20/13 2:10 AM
help! this is a bit urgent - i have to give a presentation/mini-lesson in a job interview in a couple of days & need to use the magnifier tool in win7 but i'm having problems......
laptop 1: acer aspire 5732z, win7 ultimate, 64-bit
laptop 2: fujitsu-siemens amilo-d 7830, win7 pro, 32-bit
* when i open the magnifier on laptop 1 i can open the views drop down & select full screen, lens, or docked but on laptop 2 full screen & lens are greyed out..................i ideally need to set it to lens (even full screen would be better than docked)
* when i open the magnifier on laptop 1 i can adjust the lens size, under settings. That option is not there at all on laptop 2........because lens is disabled/unavailable?
....any ideas what's going on & how to activate those options?
could it be a difference between W7 Ult & Pro? or between 64 & 32 bit?
i think laptop 2 is too old to take a 64-bit OS
any help welcome!
