      Hello Ilias,

      Well, I think I have made a little progress getting the Windows 7
      magnifier set up. I verified that I do have Windows 7 Home Premium
      edition and was able to select one of the aero themes. When I open the
      magnifier though, it is totally unusable. I can't tell what anything is
      or what is going on. I have not been able to find the transparent
      magnifying glass you mentioned so I can change the settings. Nor have I
      seen any full screen option. In fact I have not found any options
      anywhere. Initially the magnifier opened in a small section at the top of
      my screen. I was able to click on the bottom of it and drag it down thus
      increasing the size of the magnification box. But all I could see in the
      box was swirls and colors. Perhaps this is because of the theme I chose
      but none of them seem to offer distinct colors.

      So I guess my next question is how do I find settings? Where is that
      magnifying glass you mentioned that I can click on? Thanks again for your
      help with this!

      Hello again, Sherry.

      The simplest way is to see if the "full screen" option is grayed out in
      the
      Windows 7 magnifier. If so, then you are probably not using a glass theme.
      Or an Aero-theme, witch is the correct name.

      The Aero desktop experience is available in the Home Premium,
      Professional,
      Ultimate, and Enterprise editions of Windows 7. So first make sure you
      have
      one of those before you continue.

      To turn Aero on, right click on the windows desktop and chose Personalize.
      There, change from Windows classic to one of the aero themes. I am not
      100%
      sure, but I think that is how to change it.

      Good luck!
