I am wanting to automate "zooming in" to a specific area on the screen.

For instance, there is a windows application that can not be resized or made full screen. I would like to "zoom in" to this area based on its dimensions.

Most of my scripts for the main application I'm writing are in python. I've looked into the win32api package for python, but honestly I don't know how to find what i'm looking for there.

I would also consider using external applications such as autohotkey, etc, if this is not doable in python.

Any suggestions would be helpful!
