    Hello all,

    The last few days my wife has somehow pressed something up my keyboard and brought up the big rectangle magnifying glass looking thing on the monitor.

    No big deal. But the problem is I can't figure out how to make it go away without rebooting.

    So my questions are, what could she be hitting to open it and how can I make it go away without rebooting?

    I am running Vista

    Thanks

    Well somewhat, but pressing the keys it describes in the article is not doing what it's done for her.

    This is weird.

    Thanks for the reply though.

    Just found it.

    It's the "right side button" on my mouse.

    I looked at the mouse settings and found it.

    Think I'll be changing that setting.
