JSI Tip 5957. When you start Windows, the Magnifier utility starts automatically?

When you start Windows, the Magnifier Accessibility utility starts automatically.

If you do NOT close the Magifier utility before you shut down, it will automatically run when you start Windows.

To close Magnifier:

1. Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE press Task Manager.

2. Select Magnify.exe and press End Task.

NOTE: If Magnify.exe is running when you shut down, the Magnify.exe program is added to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Runonce key.
