WindowWatcher Comments


Negative Comment by IonChristopher
about WindowWatcher and Magnifixer, ZoomIt Jun 2016

An error message appeared and clicking on it to cancel poked Vista to Blue Screen. On second try force-killed the program but the message persisted and same outcome.

TRY MAGNIFIXER - it works full time and with 0% CPU and doesn't interfere because it doesn't follow the cursor. As a full screen zoom use ZOOMIT. I've also been using the Intellimouse Magnification utility that comes with upscale MS stuff - and that can be run concurrently with the other two. Tah dah.


Exactly what I was looking for!

This is the ONLY application (that I found) that has the functionality I needed. I highly recommend WindowWatcher. Thank you!
