Q: I opened up voice recognition on my computer running Windows Vista. Since then the Magnifier starts up automatically at every startup. How do I disable Magnifier?
A: Click Start, All programs, Accessories, Ease of Access, and Ease of Access Center. Click Make the computer easier to see. Uncheck the option Turn on Magnifier. Click Save.
If the above option is enabled, Magnifier starts whenever you logon to your computer.
Then click the Magnifier icon in the Taskbar (to maximize the window), and select Exit from the File menu in Magnifier.
