So I find myself zooming in and out of pages in chrome a lot and would like to start using the magnifier. I was just wondering if I could make it a whole lot easier based on how frequently I would be using it by being able to bind it to a single, extra mouse button. It would be quite handy if I could turn it on and off with a single button rather than a key combo shortcut, I don't want it on all the time and would most likely be turning it on and off very frequently. Thank you.

I dunno about that, but I find that holding down the Ctrl key and scrolling will increase/decrease the size of most browser windows.


Beyond that it appears that there are several magnifier functions - Windows, touchpad/mouse, and browser.

For the Windows magnifier, press the Win key and the + key to open Magnifier in full screen mode.

Then Win + or Win - to increase/decrease magnification.


EDIT:  I have a Logitech trackball that allows me to assign keystroke combinations to the buttons on the trackball.  I believe this is the same software for all Logitech mice.
