Apologies in advance if this is "old hat" to some / most of you, but I've been struggling for ages to read small text in forums (and also in msts AE!). I'd been aware of an inbuilt screen magnifier within Windows, but had never used it... until now! And how simple it is.... Just place your cursor where you want to magnify, hold down the windows key and press '+'. Done! Move your cursor to move around the screen. Hold Windows key and press '-' to go back to normal.
I'll now go back to sleep for another 20 years!

Here's another one people here might find useful when modifying wordpad (or other) files
Windows Key and 'v'.   This is a clipboard modification, and once activated anything subsequently copied to the clipboard will be saved in memory. Just press Windows and 'V' again to see your most recent clipboard entries in sequence and you can then select the one you wish to use.
I'm unsure if there's a limit, but a re-boot does clear the memory.
