  • I am looking for help as to how to disable the windows magnifer on vista home. I set it  up when getting my computer not knowing what it was. I can not find anyway to turn it off now. It turns on upon start up and all i am doing is closing. Is there an option for a one time turn off, so it will not start everytime my computer turns on?
  • Yes. Try disabling it from the start up. Go to start-->programs-->start up folder. See if magnifier is there. Then delete it. Or you can type msconfig into the command prompt and uncheck the application. Also, you can try this link: http://www.microsoft.com/enable/products/windowsvista/ 
  • Hi Mandy
    Go to control panel look under ease of access center turn it off there !
    You may have to use classic view to see it!
    Good Luck
