ATL Quickstart: Microsoft Magnifier
Microsft Magnifier is a screen magnifying program distributed with Windows XP. It's available via the accessibility control panel and allows the user to enlarge the screen for more comfortable viewing. Though this software is not intended to take the place of more fully featured magnification programs such as ZoomText, it is intended to provide temporary access to magnification functionality for short term use.
