#Office365Challenge – Windows Magnifier, I’m interrupting my current Excel blogs to talk about the Magnifier. Promised a guy at Information Worker JHB last night, I’d blog it, and yes, a lot of people most probably doesn’t know it exists, and that’s EXACLTY why I write these blogs.

Day: 107 of 365, 258 left
Tools: Windows
Description: Windows Magnifier

So with old age, comes not being able to read the fine print so well anymore (and yes I’m talking about myself). Something I use every single day, is CTRL + scroll of the mouse wheel to zoom in and out of programs. This works for most programs / Office / browsers, but sometimes, for some apps, it doesn’t. And that’s where the magnifier comes in. It might not be Office 365 specifically, it’s Windows, BUT it works in the browser and Office – so in my eyes it’s blog-worthy.

To open the Magnifier, click the Windows button and search for Magnifier. This will open the Magnifier (I’ve right clicked on the search result and added it to my Taskbar for easy find next time).

Once it opens it will zoom, move to the “-” or “+” to zoom in and out. I changed my view to Lens which allows me to zoom in on a specific place in the document, and not the whole page. When the menu disappears click on the Magnifying glass to open the menu and make changes or close it.



Pretty cool right?!

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
