ZoomIt – A cool Windows utility


ZoomIt is a free screen zoom and annotation tool for technical presentations that include application demonstrations. ZoomIt runs unobtrusively in the tray and activates with customizable hotkeys to zoom in on an area of the screen, move around while zoomed, and draw on the zoomed image.

ZoomIt works on all versions of Windows and you can use pen input for ZoomIt drawing on tablet PCs.

The first time you run ZoomIt it presents a configuration dialog that describes ZoomIt’s behavior, let’s you specify alternate hotkeys for zooming and for entering drawing mode without zooming, and customize the drawing pen color and size. Thee draw-without-zoom option can be used to annotate the screen at its native resolution, for example.

ZoomIt also includes a break timer feature that is an on-screen count-down timer that remains active even when you tab away from the timer window and allows you to return to the timer window by clicking on the ZoomIt tray icon.

    • What’s weird is that this is exactly the same text on the Microsoft site, with the word “free” added in the first sentence (and again at the end).

      Maybe not so weird — I’m thinking someone hacked a WordPress injection, but I can’t see how anyone is making any money from it, so what’s the point?

  1. Weird. The guy who wrote that program, Mark Russinvich, founded SysInternals. Now works for Microsoft. He is one of the top Windows developers on the planet. SysInternals doesn’t exists any more since MS bought them. Also, this was all before Win8, Win10. So it is odd that an old tool from SysInternals would show up as a post.
