    The Magnifier is the first truly affordable, full screen magnifier software for Windows computers. It was introduced 20 years ago by Innovation Management Group, a major publisher of on-screen keyboard and pointing device utilities, to expand its assistive technology products for visually and physically challenged individuals. Supports: Windows 11 / 10 / 8.1 / 8 / 7 / Vista / XP & 2000
    The latest release supports from 1 through 40 times magnification in 1/10th percent increments. It can operate as a Full Screen Magnifier, an Area Magnifier (known as a windowed magnifier), or in Lens Mode (think old-fashioned magnifying glass).

    Movement and User Settings are easily controlled from your mouse or keyboard. Users can choose to selected from either an:
    • "Easy To Read" Full Screen Menu
    • "Floating" Toolbar Screen Menu or
    • "Simple" Hot-Key Shortcut Menu
    • (a printout of Hot-Keys is available at the left side of this webpage)

    The most popular menu with Schools and Libaries seems to be the Toolbar Menu. We've heard Librarian and Computer Tech's like it because no one ever asks for help!

    What Does it Cost?
  • $49.95 for a Web e-License (sent via e-mail) or...
  • $59.95 for it on DVD (plus S/H) or...
  • $69.95 for our "Insert & Go Anywhere USB Drive" (plus S/H)
  • and... with our "Insert & Go Anywhere USB Drive" you can take The Magnifier to the library, work, school, a friends house, to visit family, an internet cafe, even on vacation!

    The Magnifier is also popular with Schools, Libraries & Companies!
  • $299.95 for a single School or Library License!
  • (Larger district, institutional, agency, and company licenses are also available at a very reasonable cost).

Why do I need this?

The Magnifier is ideal for individuals that need visual assistance, work with differing screen resolutions, do presentations and/or training, and Graphic Artists. It is simple & easy to use, its operation is automatic, and it is an ideal enhancement to the Windows Environment.

How do I use it?

Load it, position it, and reference it as needed - it is that EASY! You can Zoom (full screen / window toggle) with Alt-Z. You can view (hide / show toggle) the Magnifier with Alt-S. Invert colors (toggle) with Alt-I. Toggle cursor display with Alt-C. Select 2x magnification with Alt-2, or 3x with Alt-3. And those are the basics - there are many more useful and advanced features... For a more detailed list of keyboard shortcuts, and other user options, click here

How does the demo work?

The demo is a "limited working copy for evaluation" which means you can use it for up to 1 hour at a time, then you have to restart it. It will continue to work for up to 100 hours total to let you evaluate how it works for you. Then it stops working unless you purchase it.

If you want to try before you buy, please print this great Hot-key Shortcut Menu
then Download the Magnifier software here.

How does the licensing work?

The license is a "personal license" which means you can use the software (license key and registered serial number) for unlocking The Magnifier on your personal computer. If you have a laptop and a home PC, a single license key will allow you to install the magnifier on both (you can do this with either the the downloaded demo or the software that comes on a DVD). You may also install and license the software on a USB drive (using the appropriate download) using your license key and serial number or buy it pre-installed on IMG's "Insert and Go Anywhere" USB Drive.

How do I purchase a license?

Download the software. Play with it. Make sure it works for you the way you expect it too. If you want to License the software immediately, click "Purchase License Now" in the IMG License Manager when your demo ends (or launch the License Manager by clicking Start, Programs, The Magnifier, Licensing Information). It's that easy!

If you wish to order the software on DVD or our "Insert and Go Anywhere USB Drive", you can order on the website. Just choose The Magnifier License - "Add To Cart", and on the next page pick DVD or USB Drive.

The downloads available on our website are the actual software products. The same that ship on DVD. If unlicensed, the demo will shut down in about an hour and can be restarted up to 100 times. When licensed, they are not limited in any way.
