What is the "Magnifying Glass" extension and how does it work?
Use this extension to enhance the readability of images or small text at the current cursor position. It functions as a digital magnifying glass, enlarging the content at the user-defined magnification level. Adjust the lens size and magnification level through the right-click context menu over the action button. To revert the cursor, simply use the escape key or left-click.

Can I active the extension with a keyboard shortcut instead of using the action button?
If you are using a Chromium browser, open a new tab and navigate to "chrome://extensions/shortcuts." Once there, locate this extension and set up a personalized shortcut according to your preferences.
For Firefox users, access the extension manager and click on the three-dot button located at the top of the page. In this view, you'll find the option to configure your preferred shortcut for the extension.
I've installed the extension, but I can't find the magnifying glass icon on my browser toolbar. What should I do to resolve this?
Some browsers hide the action button for new extensions within the extension popup to prevent cluttering of the interface. To locate the button, open the extensions popup from the toolbar area and look for this extension (identified by a blue magnifying glass). Once found, pin it to the toolbar area. Alternatively, you can set up a keyboard shortcut that mimics pressing the action button.
How can I revert the cursor to the original appearance when I am done with the magnifier?
You have three options to return the cursor to its original state. You can either use the left-click button, press the Escape key on your keyboard, or click the action button. It's worth noting that when the extension is active (magnification is enabled on the current tab), the action button appears red, and when it is disabled, the action button appears blue.
