Funktioniert nicht. Alle Möglichkeiten ausprobiert - habe LUPE wieder deinstalliert. Schade, wäre genau das richtige Werkzeug für mich.

It does not even show the portion of the screen under the magnifier. It starts at the left side of the screen and never gets to the right side. Useless.

Running the most recent version of Edge, Version 94.0.992.50 (Official build) (64-bit). This app/extension/add-on works perfectly. It loads, ready to use, each time I open Edge. Resolution is at least as sharp as the 'zoom' feature in Edge, and easier to summons. Love this app/extension/add-on!
