    Need to activate screen magnifier on Windows Phone 8?

    I want to zoom in and out the screen on my Windows Phone 8. But, I heard that I have to activate screen magnifier for this purpose. What is the way forward for that?

    First of all, get into ‘Settings’ section on your phone. You can access it from either app list or live tile. Once you can view the ‘Settings’ screen, search for the ‘Ease of Access’ option. Once you see this option, make a single tap over it. Scroll down to the bottom part of the screen afterwards until you can find ‘Screen magnifier’ option. Move the slider with that option to the right side for turning on screen magnifier. From then on, you can magnify the screen by double tapping on the screen with your two fingers. If you want to change the magnification level, then double-tap and hold the screen. Then, move up the screen for zooming in and move down for zooming out.

    The magnifier activation is a bit tweaked in Windows8 but can be done with a little knowledge,

    From either app list or live tiles go to SETTINGS,
    Find EASE OF ACTION and tap or click on it,
    Find at the bottom, MAGNIFIER,
    Adjust the slider to activate it,
    From now onwards double tapping on screen with two fingers can activate Magnifier.
    Control the level of magnification by double tapping and holding for some time, then moving finger up or downwards.

    You can do clear all queries from windows help too.
