Virtual Magnifying Glass Portable 3.6

A simple and efficient portable utility that you can use to enlarge any portion of your screen, so you can see even the tiniest details
As its name implies, Virtual Magnifying Glass Portable is a tool that allows you to use a virtual magnifying glass, in order to better enhance certain areas of the screen. It comes with several customization features.

Since this is a portable piece of software, installing Virtual Magnifying Glass is not necessary. It means that you can store the app on a USB flash drive or any other storage device and directly run its executable file on any computer.

Therefore, you can carry Virtual Magnifying Glass Portable with you whenever you're on the move. What's more important is that the Windows Registry does not receive new entries, and no leftover files can be found on the hard drive after program removal.

Once initialized, the program places an icon in the system tray area. Clicking it activates the magnifying glass in classic view mode, but you can also switch to dynamic view.

The tool's settings allow you to change the height and width of the lens (in pixels), increase or decrease the magnification level, display graphical details and borders on the lens, invert colors and enable anti-aliasing. Furthermore, you can make Virtual Magnifying Glass automatically run at system startup, as well as change the default keyboard shortcuts. All settings can be saved with the new values as default.

Virtual Magnifying Glass supports multiple languages for the interface, includes user documentation and worked smoothly during our testing. We have not come across any problems, since the app did not freeze, crash or pop up error dialogs.
