Hallo Elke,

hast Du mal im Menü “Fenster” die Option “Folge Fokus” gesetzt?

Dear Madame or Sir,

I am a German physics student and I just got introduced into the use of TeXworks and I would like to use it regularly for all kinds of documents. But there is a huge problem. I have a visual impairment and that is why I have to use the Windows Screen Magnifier to work on a computer (I use it in full screen modus). This magnifier unfortunately is not working with TeXworks quite well. By typing a text, the magnifier is supposed to follow the text I am writing automatically. In TeXworks however it does not follow my writing at all and stays always at the same spot until I move it manually with the mouse (the magnifier follows the mouse cursor). This is pretty unhandy as I either do not see what I am writing or always have to use the mouse to follow my text, which takes a lot of time and is very annoying especially while writing longer texts. 
Maybe you could take this problem into account and find a way to make TeXworks compatible with the Windows Screen Magnifier. That would be great. Thank you.
With kind regards
Elke Kirschbaum
