Zooming in screen

Some students may suffer from reading or viewing the projector screen in the computer Labs specially the ones sitting far from it.

So I suggest using the following options for Mac desktop or Windows desktop if needed, it will be very helpful as you can configure it to “zoom in” or “zoom out” your Mac screen , or windows screen .

this zoom features and draw, moving around while zoomed etc.. will help our students a lot , as many default font sizes, icons and tools are too small.

1-If you’re using a Mac desktop system

with a “normal” keyboard and a mouse with a mouse wheel, just press and hold the [control] key, then scroll the mouse wheel up and down, and you’ll see what I mean. The entire Mac screen zooms in and out, just like the “software zoom” on a digital camera.

If the option is not activated , just go to [ system preference ] then [ Accessibility ] choose Zoom from the left side list and Mark (right) on use scroll gesture with modifier keys to zoom .

2-If you’re using a Windows desktop system

Download and run the ZoomIt v4.5 app a (296 KB) only.

from the docs.microsoft website

ZoomIt is a screen zoom and annotation tool for technical presentations that include application demonstrations. ZoomIt runs unobtrusively in the tray and activates with customizable hotkeys to zoom in on an area of the screen, move around while zoomed, and draw on the zoomed image.

The first time you run ZoomIt it presents a configuration dialog that describes ZoomIt's behavior, like hotkeys for zooming and for entering drawing mode, also includes a break timer feature.
