Don't make them squint, ZoomIt!

Next of Windows - ZoomIt – The Little Tool to Zoom In and Out Your Desktop with Ease

ZoomIt, part of the famous Sysinternals Suite, is an awesome little tool that makes presentation as well as software demonstration a great pleasure to not only the presenter but also all audiences who desperately want to see what’s on the big screen more clearly. It’s a 2-in-one tool that combines screen zoom and annotation into one little piece that is also very easy to use and highly customizable. It’s been around for years, but still it’s one of my favorite tools that I want to recommend to anyone who does presentation or demonstration for living.

ZoomIt is free and portable, runs unobtrusively in the system tray and activates with customizable hotkeys to zoom in on an area of the screen, move around while zooming, and draw on the zoomed area.



If you've seen just about any Microsoft development or technical presentation you've probably seen this tool in action. You've seen the presenter zoom in? Maybe draw on the screen? This is likely the utility they used. If you're a budding live presenter this tool is a must know... And the price is really hard to beat (it's free ;)
