    Gary, any way to "move" around if zoomed in when using quick time player?

    Thanks in advanced

    Jesper: Do you mean using the Zoom feature I describe in this video? It doesn't matter which app you are using, it is something that acts on the whole screen.

    Thanks Gary, I wasn't aware at that moment, but everything is fine now.

    My zoom appears when unwanted by using the mouse. How do you just turn this off? I'm always having to command 0 to undo these zooms. Frustrating.

    Christi: Look at the options I show in the video. There is one for turning it on with the mouse or trackpad gesture. Just turn that one off.

    Fantastic video! Key question though: can you set the Mac to go into Zoom mode automatically upon startup? If not, then a nearly-blind person won't be able to activate the Zoom feature in the first place (unless they can manage to find Option-Command-8).

    David: Not sure. Do you mean if you need to restart for some reason? Try it.
