Ive just been given a netbook with a 10 inch screen, and I was wondering if any one can recommend an application
for windows XP, that would allow me to make the whole screen zoom in and out , as some times its difficult to see the
small fonts Etc .

many Thanks

Hold down the Ctrl key and click on the + key to make the screen larger and the - to make it smaller
Will that work for you?

You might need to use a combination of function keys. What is the make and model of the laptop?

Would XP's Magnifier help?

Thanks for the info, from what I can see the mentioned ideas only show a small part of the screen when you use the mouse, what I am looking for is some thing that can zoom in / out the '' whole '' screen and not just a small area ..? any ideas Please :thumbsup:

The netbook I am using is an ASUS N10 J , running Windowws XP.

I have never used this application, nor know anything about it. I just happened to 'stumble' on it.

Zoom an area around the mouse, zoom a fixed window or zoom the entire desktop

This seemed to be what you were looking for.
