  1. Microsoft magnifier


    For just over a month magnifier no longer follows the keyboard/typing focus. Magnifier only follows the mouse. I use it mainly in docked view. I have tried switching views. I have checked the settings and all the focus boxes are checked. I have tried unchecking and restarting and going back and rechecking the boxes several times. Please help me get this problem solved. I am visually impaired and need this magnifier function of following the keyboard/typing focus to work. It is important that it works. I need this to do my work. I am using Windows 10.

    :)
