Increase desktop icon size

Recommended Posts


Hi All,

I have a need for the following function/application: When a desktop icon is moused over, it is shown in a greatly increased size, both the icon picture and the icon text. It can be either a separate popup box or window that shows the increased in size icon. If the mouse goes off of this icon onto another, then the icon should go back to normal, and the moused over icon will increase. Then when the icon is clicked, it runs the application associated with the icon. Sort of like a magify function for the icon.

Thanks for any help.



Update: I have been able to write a script to use the magnify.exe file found in system32. It is in it's crude form right now, but when it gets polished up, I will post it.
