    Hello again all,
    This probably applies to any OS version.
    Every once in a while, our 20mo old nephew takes a wack at this screen while he’s looking at something.
    Sometimes the screen then gets BIG. Everything gets huge. Icons and all.
    No sure how to get it back so I just turn it off and back on again. The >>squeeze<< method doesn’t seem to do it.
    Is this some sort of “five finger” enlargement technique???
    Thanks, Ken

    It’s probably the Zoom mode under Accessibility. Read gesture description under the on/off switch for how to use it. Also check the Accessibility Shortcut setting at the bottom of the Accessibility screen to see how he might be toggling Zoom mode on/off.

    “5 finger enlargement technique”.... sounds like something from a late night infomercial. You’ll go blind.......... they say. L
