Windows 10 Magnifier needs to be improved!
The magnifier works terribly.
The motion is jammed and not smooth.
It doesn't feel like it had been optimized.
Using the GPU to improve the zoom motion would be ideal.
Mac OS and Chrome Os implemented this perfectly.
Also, adding a select to speak feature would be ideal, since some users don't need narrator on full time.
Allow users to customize the modifier keys they want to use with the mouse wheel.
Thanks for listening! These improvement will change the whole windows experience to people like me.

Please make the magnifier zoom transition smooth. You can replicate Mac OS or do better. But this one just not nice. I am not a fan of Mac but bought one because of this. My mom and dad had an eye problem and did not want them to use a Windows magnifier. You update Windows regularly. Just update this one, please. Its 2020 and the same problem appears to be the same. I am a YouTube creator and an Online Educator. Using Mac OS just because of the smoothness of the transition. Believe me tutors use this functionality a lot as well.
Also: It could be great if we can change the keyboards shortcut whatever we want. Forcing to press Windows Plus not helping if you want to use one finger to control magnification.
After using Zoom on Mac at work for years I wish wish wish Windows (my choice at home) had similar usability and functionality.
On Mac, I can hold cmd and scroll the mouse wheel to zoom in and out and it does so SMOOTHLY. The implementation in Windows is jittery and bad. I have 16 GB RAM, an i7 9800K, an nvidia RTX 2080. I have more than enough horsepower to run a simple magnifier and yet it struggles.

Just make it work the way it did in windows 7; it was perfect then and now it gets on my nerves so bad.

Need a fix so that when i play a video in MPC HC, the magnifier STAYS IN THE BACKGROUND.
Fix it so that my desktop icons stay put when opening and closing magnifier
Fix it so that the red X is visible in the docked at bottom position
