    huge screen size

    All of a sudden my icons and applications are huge. So huge that they do not fit on the screen. I have tried everything but no luck. Has this happened to anyone else and if so how can I correct it.
    Thanks for your time.

    Double tap with 3 fingers to return to normal, three finger double tap again to zoom in again. If you don't want this feature, go into Setting > General > Accessories > and turn off the Zoom feature.

    Apologies, Pocobear, but a minor correction: The Zoom feature is under Settings > General > Accessibility > Zoom. (It's not Accessory).

    But, I mainly posted because I didn't know the iPad could do this. Kind of fun, playing with the 3-finger tap to zoom in ... tap to zoom out ... zoom in ... zoom out ...

    New things to learn - every day!

    But, crosj, you can turn it off if you don't like it (which I ended up doing ... 'cause I couldn't figure out why I needed it to zoom...). Just go to the Settings as outlined above.

    Remember though, it's a 3 finger double tap to zoom in/out or a 3 finger tap-and-hold to move the screen around while in zoom mode. Two fingers aren't going to work...

    Good luck.

    Thanks so much for that hint. Didn't think of that. Its been driving me insane since I updated the OS to 4.3.3 , 2 days ago.
