ZoomIt is a freeware from Sysinternals which lets you zoom into part of your screen. With resolutions beyond 1600*1200 it becomes more urgent to have tools at your disposal that let you zoom into part of your screen to magnify that part. It is also nice if you want to take a closer look at low resolution images for instance.
ZoomIt displays a configuration menu at the first startup. You can configure hotkeys for various aspects of the tool (hotkey for Zooming, breaking and drawing). It is a great tool for presentations as well, if you run them using a notebook and beamer for instance. Zoom the important part so everyone gets a better view of that part.
The program is portable, which means that you can simply download and extract it to a location on your system. From there, you can simply run it to make use of it.
First thing that you may want to do is check the configured keyboard shortcuts. The program gives you options to change the keyboard shortcuts which you may want to do if they interfere with existing shortcuts, or if you prefer other shortcuts that are more easy to reach.
