On my Windows98 OS there is a Magnifier utility, activated by


It splits the screen into two panels and provides a magnified view in the
top panel of the pointer region in the lower panel. It magnifies anything on
the screen, including all portions of the Mathematica Help.

I have a student using Mathematica 4.2 (under Windows) who has major
visual impairment.  With the aid of a standard utility (ZoomText)
together with Mathematica's built-in magnification, he is able to read
ordinary Mathematica notebooks.  But not the all-important Help Browser.

How can one mangify the Help Browser window -- not just the main panel
but especially the rows of buttons at the top and the 4 panes between
the buttons and the main panel?
