Windows Questions and Answers - How do You Turn Off the Windows Magnifier?

Carol writes in with a Windows question
Question:How do I turn off the Magnifier?

Answer: To turn off the magnifier in Windows vista click on Start and then Control Panel and then double click Ease of Access Center. Under Quick access to common tools you should see Start Magnifier. You should be able to click on that to make the magnifier close. Or you can go to the Make the computer easier to use section and uncheck the box that says Turn on Magnifier and then click Apply. Unchecking this box should also prevent it from starting up with your computer

If that doesn't close the Magnifier then you should see it on your taskbar as an open program and can right click on it and choose Close.
