AeroZoom turns Windows 7 Magnifier into a presentation tool

AeroZoom is a simple AutoHotKey program that enhances upon the new Magnifier in Windows 7 to turn any mouse into a presentation tool where zooming in/out and moving around becomes a breeze without a keyboard.

AeroZoom binds common keyboard controls for Magnifier to the mouse buttons allowing the user to zoom in and out using the mouse scroll wheel. To use AeroZoom, simply run the program and use the mouse scroll wheel to zoom into the screen while holding the left-mouse button down.


For more function, hold down the left button while clicking the right button to quickly call the AeroZoom options box. Here you can Show, Kill and Reset Magnifier settings. You can also launch Windows Snipping tool when you need to draw by clicking on the Draw button, launch Wordpad (Type) button and Calculator (Calc) button.


AeroZoom comes with an alternative executable for lefthanders.

Another two great tools for giving presentations are MouseShader and SlideMate.

  1. Hi,
    I have a question: Is there a way to make AeroZoom to save settings in an .ini file into the registry.
