    Hi, I have just installed Glassbrick on a laptop and it is running but I can’t get the magnification to work. The Tilde button isn’t responding either.. I have tried restarting computer as well….any ideas?

    Yes it seems to be this project now past tense, same issues, just uninstalled.

        I’m using it in Windows 10, no problem. It just doesn’t seem to recognize the full width of a 2560×1440 desktop, meaning ‘clamp mode’ doesn’t work properly at the bottom-right corner – without clamp it’s fine, just weird when zooming out real quick, no big deal but it wiggles the screen a little. Other than that, it’s just amazing, thanks.

    Am I not supposed to use this in Windows 10? I bought it few days ago and after installing Anniversary Update it closes(crashses?) after a few seconds of launching.

        Bitdefender is very suspicious about your software. Maybe you should contact them. Also please digitally sign all of executables and installed version would be so nice.

    There seems to be a bug with Overwatch. If I don’t close Glassbrick before opening Overwatrch, I get no pointer in Overwatch.

      This happens in every game when in fullscreen mode. You can fix this by changing the graphics settings from fullscreen to borderless windowed mode.

        Thanks. I’ll give it a try.
        But in my experience, borderless window will not give the same framerate as full screen.

    Very odd problem: Found, tried and liked Glassbrick last night. Placed 64-bit version in my util folder (c:util). Setup settings and used it for about an hour. This AM it’s gone. No hidden version in directory but trying to copy it there again is denied unless I rename it first? Anti-virus it temporarily disabled, same result. Elevated command prompt has same result.

    If I run renamed, it it will run for about 30 seconds and then be gone, and that new name will also no longer be usable! As if it exists at that location still but doesn’t show up as hidden, system, anything…

    Feature Request: It would be great if there were a way to setup a predefined zoom level and region and then give that a Key-Stroke. I’m constantly working between no zoom and a particular zoom level (2x) around one window. The zoomed area isn’t exactly the window’s area, but it is always the same area on the screen. So if there were a way to zoom and and then save the current zoom info to a preset, and then add a hot-key for a preset it would save me lots of zooming and panning back to the zoom window I need. Thoughts?

    Is there a docked version? if it is I buy it right now. My low-vision friend can’t use this type of zoom. Please.

    • Francesco Militello

      thanks for the reply. :(

    I really want something like this, just being able to zoom and click around at will.
    Horkey just doesnt work for me. Ctrl+scroll wheel does nothing. Just regular zooming in while on browsers, or writing programs, just as if Glassbrick wasnt running.

    I changed the shortcut to windows key+scroll wheel and it still wont work.

    I tried keyboard shortcuts and still no dice.

    I dont know why it just wont work

    I’m done with this software. See ya.

    I recently purchased this product but I’m unable to get it to run on two different Windows 7 Professional desktops, one x86 and the other x64. It runs fine on my laptop which is Windows 7 Pro x64 but on the desktops, the program opens into the system tray but then will not actually launch into zoom mode. Any advice?

    Works great! Had an issue where it wouldn’t work in the classic theme for win7 but I’ve decided to use the default theme since my main issue with it was the lack of color adjustment and the default magnifier being a clunky mess.

    This is a magnificent program and is LEAGUE’S ahead of Microsofts insulting excuse of a magnifier. There are some issues with key binding like not being able to use extra mouse buttons but it’s no big deal. Definitely would recommend to anyone with a visual impairment.

    This app is very slick. Love the crisp image quality and mouse tracking. Any chance you could allow the window size and location to be set? I use 2 monitors and only want the magnifier on one.

    Track typing is not working for me. The track typing setting is marked. Am I missing someting in the settings?

  • Fred

    Can i save my settings and have the same settings *and the application( run automatically each time I open my PC? Right now, I have to set the settings each time, and first I have to go to the folder and launch the app.
