    Magnifier


    Until a couple of weeks ago, when I clicked on the magnifier, a window opened on my desktop with the option of clicking on increase or decrease magnification. Then, suddenly, that stopped. When I click on the app, it appears in the tray but I have to press windows key and plus to magnify or windows key and minus to reduce. I can't get it to be on the desktop. Any suggestions.

    :)
