Windows 10: Is there a way to imitate this for a Windows 10 Dell 2 in one laptop

    Is there a way to imitate this for a Windows 10 Dell 2 in one laptop


    I have used the Mac for a while where one can zoom the entire desktop by tapping 4 fingers on the mouse tracker, etc. Is there a way one can do this in a Windows Desktop or Laptop mouse or a utility? Probably not right? Someone said it can be done but I search and check all the control panels and found no such feature.

    You can come close if you use the Windows Magnifier. See this MS Help note from Support.Microsoft.com for more info: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...-use-magnifier. Among other things, they explain how you can use the keyboard & mouse, keyboard shortcuts, and a touch screen to magnify the whole screen (which is what I think you want) or portions thereof.

    You can do something very similar using AutoHotkey.

    For example, this 2-line AutoHotkey script lets you hold the left-hand Windows key down then zoom in and back out again (using Magnifier) with the mouse's scroll wheel.

    Code:
    LWin & WheelUp::SendInput #{NumpadAdd}
    LWin & WheelDown::SendInput #{NumpadSub}

    The code came from this AutoHotkey forum post. Although written originally for Windows 7, it works just as well in Windows 10.

    Hope this helps...
