    Have vision issue. Zoom set at 200. View set usually at largest print size. Using Windows 7 64 bit. Have the following issues.

    1. Why does the File, Edit, View, Tools, Help line disappear and how do you get it back?

    2. Why when you change zoom size like going back and forth between 150 and 200, do you have to restart the computer? Is there a short cut for this?

    3. Why when you have zoom set for 200 and View set for usually largest do so many of the messages come through in very small print? Is there instructions for correcting this situation?

    4. Why doesn't the print function size the "job" to paper size when zoom is set at 200? The 200 zoom is an option in the system so you would think it would adjust to the size paper like 150 zoom does.

    Have you tried using the magnifying glass app in W7, or a pair of real glasses?
    Have you tried adjusting your monitors resolution? 200 zoom is , well, outrageous.

    1 Zoom tends to radicaly offset your screen realestate. You may eventually need a larger sized monitor or a resolution
    adjustment.
    2 I'm not aware of any short-cuts for this.
    3 Is this in web pages or email?

    You can also reset your font size in WLM prior to printing?

    I have a sneaking feeling that your multiple zoom sizes are messing up your viewable realestate, and also your
    printing. revert everything to their default settings and try changing the screen resolution of your monitor prior to
    setting up accessibility options.

    Clint, thanks for your suggestions. I played around with the zoom and screen rosolution and now have a better balance. There still is a problem that in most cercumstances when you change zoom you have to restart the computer for it to take effect. Would still like to control size of headers like we used to be able to do in XP. Again, thanks. Joe
