Introduction

In this article we will talk about one of the Windows 8 operating system's utilities; it is Magnifier. As indicated by the name, the meaning of magnifier is to make anything larger than its original size because here we are talking about the operating system magnifier so it will make screen display items larger such as text of a file, system icons, media items etc. Actually the Magnifier is a display utility of the Windows operating system; it is used to make your computer screen items more displayable in the manner of increasing their sizes.

Often it is used in the situation where we work with a wireless mouse and keyboard because the wireless keyboard and mouse allow the user to work on the system away from the system as their range of work. So in this case the magnifier can help you to increase your file text size as your need.

Step 1: Open the Windows 8 operating system; then go to the right lower corner of the screen and click the search button.
