    On lock screen, Narrator and Magnifier auto-start, switched off


    Hi guys,

    My magnifier and narrator auto-start on the lock screen despite them both being switched off in the Ease of Use panel. The narrator turns off when the desktop loads and the magnifier stays on in the shape of the magnifying glass in the upper left area of the screen. It's not debilitating just annoying. Anyone know how to fix it or maybe a regedit that can get rid of them completely?

    Hi

    Turning OFF Narrator.

    Click Settings>Ease of Access>Which takes you to Narrator or Magnifier or High Contrast.

    Click Narrator OFF and Also Click Start Narrator Automatically OFF (With the ON/OFF Sliders)

    Turning Magnifier OFF.

    Settings>Ease of use>Which takes you to Narrator or Magnifier or High Contrast.

    Now this time you do it just a little bit different.

    Click on Magnifier but this time Turn OFF Start Magnifier Automatically (First!)

    Then go back up and Turn OFF Magnifier (Both of which are done with the ON/OFF Sliders)

    At which point you will see the little Banner with the Magnifying Glass and all its magnification settings, on the Top Right Corner of which is an 'X' so Click the 'X' and Close it down.

    Having done that, come out of that Menu altogether by clicking outside of that Menu.

    In the Event that you can still see the Magnifying Glass on the Screen, then Click directly on it and it will disappear! until such time as you decide that you may want to use it at some future time.

    But if you don't Turn it OFF in Settings, then it will be back to haunt you till you do!

    Top Tip!

    Instead of using the Magnifier: Hold down the Control Button (bottom left on the Keyboard) Then while the Control Button is being held down, Tap the Plus+ Button (top right next to the back button) and whatever you have on the Screen will just get 'Bigger and Bigger' Then do the same with Minus- Button (next to the Plus+ Button) and it will get Smaller again.

    Also put the Settings Button (the one that looks like a Gog Wheel) on your Tool Bar at the Bottom of the Screen, then it will save you having to Scroll through all that Stuff to find it, as its one thing that you could be using a lot.
