Are you experiencing jerky movements or jumping around the screen when using Magnifier with the Windows 10 update? The Windows 10 Fall Creators update has two Magnifier bugs that are easily resolved. Some older computers are displaying jerky movements when Magnifier is turned on. The second issue occurs when Magnifier and Narrator are turned on at the same time.  Both issues are resolved by:

  • Open Settings
  • Select Ease of Access
  • Select the Magnifier section on the left-hand side
  • Untick Enable Bitmap Smoothing option on the right side (resolves the jerky Magnifier issue)
  • Untick the  Follow Narrator Cursor option (stops Magnifier from following every word read by Narrator)
