- The next window type that I wanna…take a look at is called the magnifier window.…It works just like holding up a…magnifying glass to your map.…We can get to it by going to the windows menu…and choosing magnifier.…The magnifier by default is set to 400 percent…for me, and if we move it around the map,…I get this little crosshair.…And when I let go, it gives me a zoomed in view…of that portion of the map.…I've gone ahead and centered this magnifier…window over Washington, D.C. and New York.…Now at first glance, it looks like we have…some additional tools up here.…It looks like we have a zoom in, zoom out,…pan, and full extent buttons here,…but you'll actually notice that they're all grayed out.…
They're not accessible in the magnifier window.…The only thing that we can change here…is the magnification percentage.…We can change it to 100 percent,…in which case it'll just show us…exactly what's underneath the map there,…or we can change it to a higher percentage,…say 500 percent.…It'll zoom in 500 percent more…than what I'm currently at here.…
